Fab Cocktails for a Thanksgiving Feast

1 2 3 4 5

Turkey Day is right around the corner, and you know what that means…a family and calorie overload. Kill two birds with one stone by getting tipsy with your meal (to drown out the inevitable family bickering) and perfectly complement your fave dish—so much so that you might opt for a less-calorific libation in lieu of that second helping of stuffing! Can’t get enough Thanksgiving in one night? Whip up these bad boys the next day and relive each joyful course alcohol-style. What’s not to be thankful for?

-Amanda Mactas

Nix the cranberry sauce this Thanksgiving and pair your turkey with a delicious cranberry-based cocktail instead. Delish.com’s Cranberry Zinfandel Punch is made with cranberry juice, Zinfandel wine, lime juice and seltzer, and clocks in at only 90 calories—so no need to feel guilty about drinking up!

    Definitely the cranberry-zinfandel punch while waiting for the gang to arrive.
    As crazy as it sounds – the sage-onion gibson sounds like it will go with many an appetizer or knosh – especially if you’re a vodka lover like myself!
    Cinnsation with dessert.

    After a while & a brisk walk in the fresh air to clear the mind and shake the lethargic sensation one feels after feasting a tad bit too long, the hot buttered rum might just take the chill off enough to settle into some comfy conversation.

    That’s it – we’ll just have to try them all!
