Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays of the year, and not just because there's delicious food. It's the perfect day to chill with the cousins you haven't seen all year and get appropriately wasted. We all love turkey and sweet potatoes, but imagine having your entire Thanksgiving dinner in cocktail form? You're already going to sleep off a feast, so you might as well make it a boozy one.
Cocktails and alcoholic drinks are fun regardless of the occasion, but they have a huge benefit to Thanksgiving. Wouldn't it be nice to not give a sh*t when your great aunt starts her rant on vaccines? How lovely would a pumpkin spice cocktail be instead of the pumpkin pie so you don't have to hear your grandmother remark about the weight you've gained since she last saw you? A Thanksgiving dinner in cocktail form is the answer to your prayers, my friend. And if you're worried about feeling seasonal or truly enjoying the traditions of the holiday, I've got you covered there, too. These nine cocktails all carry the tastes and feel of Thanksgiving without a single sweet potato in sight. Grab that martini shaker and call this your turkey day craft.
