22 Easy Thanksgiving co*cktail Recipes (2024)

For years we’ve had our family’s Thanksgiving at my brother’s house and one of the defining features of the celebration is the special Vodka Sours he makes. You can’t go 5 minutes at the house without my brother Joe asking, “you want a vodka sour”. I’ve always associated Vodka Sours with Thanksgiving for this reason and has inspired this post on Thanksgiving co*cktail recipes.

Caramel Apple Cider co*cktail

22 Easy Thanksgiving co*cktail Recipes (3)

One thing I discovered (actually, someone probably told me about it) was that you could mix butterscotch schnapps with the green apple pucker and it would taste like a caramel apple. It does! But I wanted to do that in a co*cktail, not just a shot. That problem was solved with apple cider (I wish all problems could be solved with apple cider).

22 Easy Thanksgiving co*cktail Recipes (12)

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. It’s the perfect time to bring family together, and discuss everything that we are thankful for. I don’t know about you, but I’m always thankful when I have a margarita in my hand. Especially during family events, because there’s always that one ( or 5) family member that will have you wishing, that you had drink. C’mon – don’t act like I’m the only one that feels this way around the holidays! We all have that annoying cousin, or uncle that makes you wish you had a margarita, or three, engaging into a conversation with them.
