10 Cocktails to Drink This Thanksgiving

Posted By on Thu, Nov 20, 2014 at 12:49 PM

You have probably already decided where you’re going to spend Thanksgiving this year. Maybe you’ll show up at your parents’ house just in time to eat, carrying some thrown-together slop of a casserole. Or maybe you’ll be playing host and preparing Thanksgiving dinner yourself, in which case I wish you the best of luck. Either way, you’re going to be eating turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, and all the good warm and toasty foods that hang out in your stomach until you fall asleep.

But have you thought about what you will be drinking? No? Well, here’s a line-up of the best Thanksgiving cocktails to get you through a stressful Turkey Day. Recipes for dishes will come later—priorities, people. Whatever you do, don't try these terrible-looking pumpkin cocktail concoctions

Perfect Turkey

After you overcook your turkey and everyone is at the table struggling to choke it down and grumbling about how your sister’s turkey is always so golden and moist, sneak away into the kitchen and make yourself the Perfect Turkey, just for you. Find the recipe at Epicurious.

Harvest Margarita

Margaritas in the Fall? Yes. Why are you judging? They’ve got allspice in them so it’s okay. Find the recipe at Food Network.
