10 Cocktails with Thanksgiving Flavors

Give your favorite Turkey Day flavors the cocktail treatment

The drink options on Thanksgiving, arguably the greatest of the food-centric holidays, usually center around well-priced wines that pair with a range of flavors, or perhaps a selection of Belgian-style beers. But what about some options for our friend the cocktail drinker?

When it comes to holiday-themed cocktails, Halloween and Christmas tend to steal the show — what with Halloween's dressed up potent potions and Christmas' cozy concoctions decked with peppermint and gingerbread. But believe it or not, there's just as much fun to be had with Thanksgiving-inspired cocktails.

Create some original drinks made with Wild Turkey bourbon (served with a wink and a nod), or better yet, look for drinks that feature iconic Thanksgiving flavors. Think favorite ingredients like pumpkin, cranberry, and apple, but also some unexpected players like carrot and butternut squash.
