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.
