Give Thanks with these 10 Unique Cocktails
Black Wednesday is tomorrow, Thanksgiving is just two days away, and your guests will be looking for a refreshing beverage after dealing with the insanity and trauma of Black Friday (particularly if they work in retail). Three days, three major events, all kicking off the holidays and the run towards the end of the year. Your guests are in the mood to celebrate, spend time with significant others, friends and family, and create memories.
We assume you have the classics – the Old Fashioned, Manhattan and Boulevardier to name but a few – all dialed in. And since you’ve got the standards down, and because your guests are looking for memorable experiences, we thought you could use some unique cocktails.
Below you’ll find seasonal cocktails created to complement Thanksgiving dinner, and fall and winter flavors. The following libations feature Owl’s Brew artisanal tea cocktail mixers, Novo Fogo cachaça, Jägermeister, Poire Wiliams eau de vie, falernum, and more. Beyond being unexpected, the flavor profiles of these drinks are bold and distinctive, yet they're also comforting and capture the essence of this holiday season. It's this balance between the unusual and the familiar that makes these cocktails so special. There’s nothing wrong with the classics – they’re classic for a reason, after all. But this season consider offering your guests something different to help them celebrate.
Cheers, and Happy Thanksgiving!
