Thanksgiving cocktails

Sherry cava citrus fizz

Many Americans are making their Thanksgiving to-do lists in preparation for the biggest food holiday of the year. One thing that often gets short shrift is the beverage selection. Wine generally makes an appearance, but adding cocktails to your meal will instantly up your Thanksgiving game. If you are wondering which cocktails will match with the golden turkey on the table, indexed magazine Cooking Light has nine elegant cocktails to point you in the right direction.

Cocktails served in bowls, like punches, certainly fit into any festive theme. The Sherry cava citrus fizz pictured above allows guests to help themselves, freeing you to take care of the last-minute details. You can “make this punch up to 4 hours ahead, but wait to add the cava until just before serving.”

Other sparkling cocktails also appear on the list, as do spice-spiked wines and ciders. The EYB Library features over 90 additional cocktailsthat are perfectly suited to Thanksgiving dinner, like this Spiced pear-pumpkin whisky fizz by Heather Schmitt-Gonz├ílez, and the Mulled cider and pineapple cocktail from Better Homes and Gardens Magazine.
