my collection of go-to Thanksgiving cocktail recipes
I love to start off the holiday with a house cocktail offered to each guest as they walk in the door, it’s a nice tradition and sets a festive tone for the rest of the day. You can do the same one every year and really cement the tradition, or surprise people with a new one every year.
The Frozen Turkey
Of course everybody will have to wait until dessert to get their Frozen Turkeys, but these adult cocktail milkshakes are the perfect way to cap off an epic meal.
Mezcal Cider Cocktail
A fall batch cocktail made with smokey mezcal, apple cider, and spiced maple syrup to get the party started.
Cinnamon Maple Whiskey Sour
~ Cookie & Kate
Everybody will get warm and cozy asap with this earthy fall cocktail.
Crock Pot Mulled Wine
Fill the slow cooker with everything about an hour before people arrive and not only will you have drinks ready and waiting, your house will smell amazing!
The Cranberry Bog
This fun drink can be made in a punchbowl so people can serve themselves. Be sure to float a few cranberries on top for the true ‘bog’ effect 😉
The Boulevardier Cocktail
Sometimes only a classic will do, and this cousin of the Negroni with only 3 ingredients is easy to make and has a wonderfully complex flavor.
Pomegranate Mulled Cider
A warm and festive mocktail for holiday cheer without the booze.
This elegant cocktail is a real stunner. Buy pasteurized eggs (right there with the regular eggs) if you’re concerned about using the raw egg white.
Cinnamon Rosemary Old Fashioned
~ Salted Plains
A cinnamon rosemary simple syrup makes this classic old fashioned new again.
Pumpkin Spice Liqueur
This ultra rich pumpkin cream liqueur is wonderful to sip after dinner, it’s like pumpkin pie in a glass!
Cranberry Ancho Chile Margaritas
~The Inspired Home
A unique combo of cranberry with a little kick of heat from chile makes this a memorable cocktail.
Hot Buttered Apple Cider
Hot buttered apple cider is hot buttered rum meets fresh apple cider for warming hands and hearts.
Honey Roasted Pear Sparkling Cocktail
~ Cotter Crunch
Honey roasted pear puree, honey, cinnamon and nutmeg, and a touch of vanilla ~ oh my!
Pomegranate Gin Cocktail
A simple but super pretty and refreshing gin cocktail.
Pumpkin Pie Martini
~ No Spoon Necessary
With a graham cracker-cinnamon-sugar coated rim, a slight dusting of nutmeg and the stick of cinnamon acting as a stirrer, who needs dessert?
