Infuse your Thanksgiving with a little extra fun (and a ‘lotta extra Tito’s).
It’s the time of the year when friends and family, new and old, gather around to feast on tasty treats and toast to good fortune with a Tito’s cocktail or two. Celebrate the Tito’s Handmade Vodka way and find some common ground by filling the table with dishes and cocktails that everyone* can enjoy—carnivores and vegans, alike!
(*everyone of legal drinking age, that is…)
Think tangy Spiked Cranberry Sauce paired with a Cran-Orange Infusion, or a Buzzy Kale Salad with a Harvest Punch—just to name a few. Even the side dishes are spiked with Tito’s because that’s how we like to cook around here.
Take a look at our Tito’s-infused recipes below for some creativity in the kitchen. Cheers!
Tart and tangy, our Cran-Orange Infusion is perfect for the holiday season. We suggest mixing it into a punch, or enjoying on the rocks!
1 cup frozen cranberries
2 whole orange peels
Boil the frozen cranberries for about 5 minutes or until they pop and let cool.
Add Tito's, cranberries and orange peels to a Tito's Beverage Dispenser.
Let sit for two weeks before straining out fruit.
Pro-Tip: Be careful to avoid the white pith of the orange as that can make your infusion bitter.
Spiked with Tito's Handmade Vodka, you'll want a few extra spoonfuls of this cranberry sauce. This side serves up to 4 people.
1 (12-oz) bag fresh cranberries, rinsed, drained, and picked through
1 cup sugar or coconut sugar
1/2 cup water
1/3 cup Tito’s Handmade Vodka
In medium saucepan over moderate heat, bring cranberries, sugar, and 1/2 cup water to a boil, stirring often to dissolve sugar.
Reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring often, until sauce has thickened and reduced to about 3 cups. About 15 minutes.
Transfer sauce to another bowl and stir in Tito’s. Let cool, and serve chilled or at room temperature.
A versatile punch that incorporates all your favorite fall flavors, our Harvest Punch is always a success. With sweet apple cider, effervescent ginger beer, and bubbly prosecco, you'll want more than one glass.
1 bottle prosecco
1 gallon apple cider
24 oz ginger beer
3 apples, sliced
2 oranges, sliced into triangles
8 cinnamon sticks
Cinnamon sugar, for rimming glass
Add all ingredients to a large punch bowl.
Give the punch a stir and serve with cinnamon sugar-rimmed glasses.
Pro-Tip: Let your guests add their own ice, so the punch doesn't become watered down.
Kale is packed with vitamins, and this buzzy side is a great compliment to a table filled with heavy holiday goodies. This spiked pile of greens serves up to 4 people.
1 medium shallot, minced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon Tito’s Handmade Vodka
1/4 cup olive oil
Salt & pepper, to taste
6 cups torn kale leaves
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1/3 cup toasted pepitas
1/4 cup blue cheese, crumbled
In a small bowl, whisk together vinaigrette ingredients and season to taste.
In a serving dish, sprinkle torn kale leaves with lemon juice. Gently massage the kale, softening the greens with the acid.
Sprinkle pepitas on top of the kale and toss with the vinaigrette.
Finish off the salad with the crumbled blue cheese & serve.
Our Thanksgiving Tito's & Tonic is easy and refreshing. Sometimes you just need a break during the holidays, and this cocktail has you covered.
4 oz tonic water
Pour ingredients into a glass over ice, stir, and enjoy.
Savory and salty, add an antipasto spiked with Tito's Handmade Vodka to the table tonight. This antipasto serves up to 4 people.
