Thanksgiving Cocktail Recipes

Can you believe Thanksgiving is less than one week away? Me either! 

I usually don’t host Thanksgiving, but for the people who do (or for those of you who want to bring something fun to your gathering), why not a perfect Thanksgiving-inspired cocktail? Check out these great recipes:

Spiked Apple Cider (makes 8 servings)

Spiced Apple cider

What you’ll need:

  • 2 quarts apple cider
  • 1 cup apple brandy
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder

How to make it:

  1. Combine all the ingredients in a large pot over high heat, then simmer. Lower the heat and keep warm. Strain and serve.

Pecan Pie Martini (makes 4 servings)

What you’ll need:

  • 1/2 cup dark corn syrup
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup pecans, toasted and finely chopped
  • Ice cubes
  • 4 ounces (1/2 cup) vodka
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

How to make it:

  1. Place your brown sugar and chopped pecans on two separate plates. Dip your martini into a bit of corn syrup, then into the brown sugar and pecans. Repeat with all glasses.
  2. Place ice inside a cocktail shaker, then add 1/4 cup vodka, 1/4 cup corn syrup and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla. Strain into 2 glasses. Repeat with the remaining items.

And one for the kiddies, or those not consuming alcohol:

Kiddie Cocktail

What you’ll need:

  • 6 ounces of 7UP or Sprite
  • 1 ounce of grenadine
  • Lime wedges
  • Cherries
  • Curly straws or umbrellas

How to make it:

  1. Pour the 7UP or Sprite over ice. Add the grenadine and stir.
  2. Garnish with a lime wedge, cherries and decoration.

Have fun!
