“Draw us a recipe.” That’s the brief we sent to a slew of our favorite comic artists earlier this year; each week, we’re thrilled to present what they sent back. They’re fantastic, beautiful, hilarious, thoughtful, informative, and often all of the above — and they prove that a recipe doesn’t just have to be words on paper.

This week’s comic comes from Dorothy Gambrell, creator of the first-ever Recipe Comic, as well as of the long-running web comic Cat and Girl. In her second foray for SAVEUR, Dorothy takes on the upsides — and maybe downsides — of spending Thanksgiving alone, encapsulated in the cocktail of the same name.
