Gilt Club Oregon Thanksgiving Special

Gilt Club's Jamie Dunn draws inspiration from the bar's home in Portland, Oregon to update the classic Thanksgiving Special cocktail. Calling for all local ingredients, like Ransom Old Tom gin and Imbue Dry Vermouth, the result is very floral and aromatic. —Maryse Chevriere


3/4 ounce Ransom Old Tom gin

3/4 ounce Imbue Dry Vermouth

3/4 ounce Clear Creek Pear brandy

1/4 egg whites

Dash Angostura bitters, for garnish

Ground thyme, for garnish


Combine ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice and shake.

Strain and serve in a chilled martini glass. Garnish with a dash of bitters and ground thyme.

Thanksgiving Shopping Tip

Make sure you have all the recipes you are going to make ahead of time. Compile your grocery list from those recipes a week in advance. Make sure you allot enough time for the turkey to defrost.

Thanksgiving Cooking Tip

Balance the amount of dishes prepared ahead and those put together last minute – serve cold dishes made in advance as well as items straight from the stove.
