Thanksgiving-Inspired Cocktails

Everyone knows that Thanksgiving is all about the food and the feast. From turkey and stuffing to sweet potato casserole to cranberry sauce, the staples of the season are all on the table. Just like any celebration though, everyone typically has a drink in hand. This year, go above and beyond and make seasonally inspired cocktails for that finishing touch you’ve been looking for. Here are some ideas.

A Little Bit of Everything

This fall concoction really has it all. It gets most of its flavor from fresh fruits—pear, apple, cranberries, even pumpkin—and as a result, is incredibly healthy. It is wonderful because it is not a heavy drink either. The alcohol is just cider and white wine. This tangy drink is sure to complement any Thanksgiving meal.

The Old Fashioned

Everyone loves a good smoky whiskey drink around the holiday season and this holiday is the perfect opportunity to try a seasonal twist on a classic favorite. In addition to the traditional bourbon with bitters, this drink adds more sweet flavors to complement the meal and tone down the strong whiskey. Honey, cinnamon, and a little bit of apple cider take the edge off.

Pomegranate Spritzers

For anyone that wants a bit more of a bold flavor, this cocktail calls for pomegranate, blueberries, and a variety of flavorful juices to add some pizazz to the drink. The alcohol suggested is white wine, prosecco to be specific, so this is a light and incredibly flavorful addition to any dinner.
