Thanksgiving is less than two weeks away. I repeat, it's less than two weeks away.

Since I haven't even considered if I'll be buying a pre-made bird or trying to tackle a gobbly beast on my own...I already know it's going to be a clusterfuck. To quell my nerves, I looked up shots.

I landed on The Pink Panther, a mix of equal parts pineapple juice, cranberry juice and vodka. It what turned out to be a really great and easy-to-mix shooter (just shake with ice and pour), that featured one of Thanksgiving's star ingredients. I might have to take a few of these before I finally decide to just give up and order a bird.
