Thanksgiving cocktails should make you want to curl up by a fire and sip them. Think about fall harvest and all the traditional foods of Thanksgiving. I’ve also included a few drinks that you serve warm.
Look to flavors like apple, pumpkin, cranberry, ginger and other spices. Consider warm drinks with or without coffee, and drinks featuring heavy cream or eggs.
There are also a number of very traditional cocktail recipes that work, but I’ve also collected some more inventive ones you might enjoy.
Check out these Thanksgiving food recipes to go with your drinks! There are links to turkey recipes, recipes for sides, soups, desserts and more.
These Thanksgiving cocktails are full of fall flavors, like pumpkin spice, apple cider, butterscotch and more.
And don't forget, there are some classic cocktails already featured here at Mix that Drink that will get your Thanksgiving off to a wonderful start, or finish:
The B-52 is a delicious layered cordial made from Grand Marnier, Baileys and Kahlua. Or you can substitute amaretto for the Grand Marnier. Either way, it tastes something like caramel candy and looks very festive.
The Brandy Alexander is a dessert drink: chocolatey, sweet, creamy and smooth. Because the alcohol taste is so light, you might think of it as a spiked milkshake. But it's more subtle and grown-up than that.
