Thanksgiving Cocktails

Wine is a must for holiday entertaining, but cocktails have their place at the table too. Here are six Thanksgiving cocktails we’re eyeing for our Turkey Day imbibing.

The Brown Turkey
This formula combines the subtle spices of aged rum with the sultry sweetness of figs and a bright pop of sparkling wine.

Charleston Brown Water Society Punch
This punch combines bourbon, dark rum and a sweet citrusy mix to tame the burn, making for a great sipper at any gathering.

Good Ol’ Boy
Put a little elbow grease into making this brown butter whiskey cocktail, and you’ll be sipping the benefits throughout the holidays.

Pret a Poire
Armagnac, lemon, lime, and a double dose of pear make this sophisticated sipper a holiday crowd-pleaser.

Sangre de Cristo
This wine-based cocktail is play on that spiced holiday standby, mulled wine.

Sparkling Pomegranate Punch
Cheery, wintry citrus is perfect in this pomegranate punch, not only for its color but also for the brightness it brings to the recipe. It’s wise (and easy) to double the recipe if you’re expecting a large crowd.
