The Thanksgiving in a Cup cocktail.

So what does a true Thanksgiving in a cup entail? Pumpkin, egg, heavy cream — and plenty of Appleton rum. 

Deliver Ingredients


  • 1 Ounce Appleton Estate Reserve
  • 1 Ounce Appleton Estate 12-Year-Old
  • 3/4 Ounces Ferretti Liquor
  • 1 heaping bar spoon of pumpkin pie mix
  • 1/2 Ounce heavy cream
  • 1 whole egg


Place all ingredients into a mixing glass. Dry shake (shake without ice so as to whip the ingredients together). Then shake again with ice. Strain into an empty rocks glass and top with freshly grated cinnamon.

Thanksgiving Shopping Tip

Make sure you have all the recipes you are going to make ahead of time. Compile your grocery list from those recipes a week in advance. Make sure you allot enough time for the turkey to defrost.

Thanksgiving Cooking Tip

Balance the amount of dishes prepared ahead and those put together last minute – serve cold dishes made in advance as well as items straight from the stove.
