"It’s almost Thanksgiving, which means it’s time for a Partáy! Sure, you could cook your turkey like everyone else, but why be boring? Here’s a recipe worthy of the best holiday of the year because, well….food, drinks, family, and football is all that matters. The only good turkey is one that’s extra juicy. Brining that bird 8-24 hours before you cook it is how you make it happen. The trick to the perfect brine is the right mix of flavor, salt, citrus, and alcohol."
