Adapted from "The New England Table" by Lora Brody by way of The Denver Post, it is what I plan to serve on the mornings of Thanksgiving and Christmas. Garnish could be a fresh mint sprig or a slice of orange and a few cranberries on a small skewer. Cooking time tries to reflect time needed to freeze the ice-cubes.
