Thanksgiving is one of the only times during the year where you can gather your large family around the table. And while we know you’ll be having some memorable bonding time, adding a few booze to the meal will make your family get together a little more…interesting. So after you finish carving the turkey, put your Schmidt Bros knife down and grab one of these Thanksgiving cocktails.
Pumpkin Pie Martini: Pumpkin pie is a Thanksgiving classic. This drink will help you put a little twist on a Turkey Day tradition.
Bourbon Chai: By the time Thanksgiving has rolled around, people have already braced themselves for the cold. This cocktail recipe will help you and your family stay warm in their ugly sweaters.
Cider Rum Punch: Apples are the signature fall fruit. This cocktail mixes apple cider and apples with lots of rum to create your family’s new favorite Thanksgiving apple recipe.
Apple Ginger Brandy: Let’s continue with the apple theme. The ginger in this recipe will definitely add a little spice, but what will really warm you up is how much Brandy you mix in with the apple cider.
Aged Eggnog: Thanksgiving is the start of eggnog-chugging season. So we found this eggnog recipe with extra nutmeg and Cognac to start it off right.
Cinnamon Spiced Pumpkin Pie Kahlua Cocktail: There’s no Turkey Day meal without cinnamon. And there can’t be a list of Thanksgiving cocktails without it, either. With the cinnamon and pumpkin pie combination, this recipe practically defines Thanksgiving.
Candied Yam Cocktail: We are replacing our typical sweet potatoes with marshmallows this Thanksgiving with this Candied Yam cocktail recipe. We suggest you do, too.
Hot Spiced Rum Cider: All the spices in this recipe make it the perfect fall holiday cocktail. We know we’ll be starting our Thanksgiving off with this one.
Cranberry Orange Martini: This cocktail is the ideal fruity Thanksgiving ending to go along with grandma’s cherry pie.
Now that everyone has some booze in hand on Thanksgiving, prepare yourself for a very memorable family gathering.
