This Bourbon-Gravy Shot Will Make Your Thanksgiving a Little Merrier

The gravy shot was created by Edmund’s Oast, a restaurant in South Carolina: Ye,s alcoholic turkey gravy is a real thing

It’s the day before Thanksgiving and while most of us (except those desperate holiday procrastinators) have our Turkey Day menu finalized, there’s one delicious concoction you really need to try: gravy shots.

Gravy shots are exactly what they sound like: alcoholic gravy. It’s a new and improved way of getting festive around the Thanksgiving dinner table.

Although gravy shots are not a new thing, First We Feast found this new recipe by the mixologists at Edmund’s Oast, a restaurant and brewery in Charleston, South Carolina. This hot bourbon and gravy shot is rimmed with brown sugar and herbs. Have we caught your attention yet? It would also probably be a good idea to pour some of this bourbon-y deliciousness over your turkey breast.

This is Urban Dictionary’s definition of the warming alcoholic gravy shot: “A delicious alcoholic beverage made with gravy and one or more types of liquor. Although virtually any type of liquor will produce an acceptable gravy drink, typically whiskey/bourbon, brandy or cognac are used. Demi-glace may be used in place of gravy. Typical garnishes include a sprig of rosemary and a slice of crispy bacon.”
