7 Five Delicious Thanksgiving Cocktail Recipes

That very American tradition, Thanksgiving, is around the corner, but it doesn’t all have to be about the staples of pumpkin pie and Turkey (in our vegetarian household, it rarely is). But instead of the staples of iced tea, glasses of red and white, why not go for a full-blooded Thanksgiving cocktail? Some are simple (a couple of pours and blends), and some are as complex as baking a Cinnamon bun.

Here are a few we love:

Positively Warm Apple Pie

6 oz. apple cider (heated)
2 oz. Tuaca liqueur
Whipped cream
Pinch cinnamon and nutmeg
1 cinnamon stick

In case you want to increase your apple pie consumption, make the drink version of it. In a glass coffee mug or heat-resistant goblet, combine your heated cider and Tuaca. Top with whipped cream. Sprinkle with cinnamon and nutmeg. Add the cinnamon stick and serve with a smile.

Hot Apple Cider Toddy

3 cups apple cider
1 stick (8 tablespoons) butter, softened
1/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground cloves
8 graham crackers
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
2 teaspoons rum extract
2 cups non-dairy whipped topping
4 whole cinnamon sticks
4 shots bourbon whiskey


This one is a bit more complex, simply because of the spices. Heat the apple cider in a non-reactive saucepan. In a bowl, combine the butter, brown sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon, and ground cloves. Whip until the butter becomes creamy and place the graham crackers and pumpkin pie spice in a plastic baggie and crush with a rolling pin. Combine the rum extract with the non-dairy whipped topping. In a footed coffee glass, place a single cinnamon stick and a slice of spiced butter. Pour 1 shot whiskey into the glass. Ladle the hot cider to fill the glass. Garnish with a dollop of rum-flavored topping and a sprinkle of graham cracker crumb mixture. Serve warm.

Thanksgiving Day Cider


1 part Pinnacle Pumpkin Pie Vodka

3 parts apple cider

Splash of club soda

Lemon wedge for garnish

This one is as simple as it hitting the MP3 player button: simply mix the ingredients in the order listed inside an ice-filled highball glass. Garnish with a lemon wedge.

1/4 ounce cane syrup or Rich Simple Syrup

1 think apple slice for garnish

If you want a good old-fashioned fruity cocktail, this one is it. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add all of the remaining ingredients except the apple slice garnish and shake well. Strain the drink into a chilled coupe and garnish with the apple slice.

1/2 cup dark corn syrup, plus a little more for garnishing the rim

2 teaspoons of brown sugar

1/4 cup pecans, toasted and finely chopped


4 ounces (1/2 cup) vodka

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

On a small plate, stir together teaspoon corn syrup and the brown sugar. Dip the rims of 4 martini glasses in the mixture, then in the chopped nuts. In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, combine 1/4 cup vodka, 1/4 cup corn syrup and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla. Strain into 2 prepared glasses. Repeat with the remaining ingredients.
