We don’t know about you, but drinking beer with Thanksgiving dinner never quite felt right. Don’t get us wrong, we’ll happily do it, but we’ll do it with a slight guilt. There was already so much time spent on the dinner, what’s another fifteen minutes or so for batch mixing cocktails? Plus, let’s be honest here, it’s unlikely that you were the one who cooked everything, so coming prepared to make drinks is a great way for you to contribute to the night’s proceedings. These are a few cocktails to keep you and yours going with a healthy buzz this Thanksgiving.

Earl Grey Apple Cider

Few drinks are more characteristic of fall than tea or apple cider. In fact, apple cider, both hard and not, was so common in cocktails for this season that it was harder to find drinks that didn’t include cider. We tried to limit ourselves to only a few, but we could easily run a cider cocktail feature as a followup to this one. Which, now that we think about it, isn’t a terrible idea.

Anyway, the Earl Grey Apple Cider cocktail’s pretty straightforward, but does have some ingredients that aren’t there in the name. Mix tea, hard apple cider, lemon juice, and vanilla extract, then garnish with a lemon. The recipe wants you to cool it down with some ice when you’re shaking everything together and that’s all well and good, but we’re betting this would be a pretty good hot drink as well. It gives you some good options. If Thanksgiving is warm, serve it cold. If it’s cooler, leave the tea hot and put the drink in a teapot. Getting drunk with mugs is always fun.
