The Best Part About Thanksgiving? Booze!
Thanksgiving is a day to spend with family and friends, celebrating all that you have and are thankful and grateful for. So the only thing that can take your Thanksgiving holiday up a notch is the addition of a few fan-favorite holiday spirits. At Old Tennessee Distilling Co., we have just what you need to make your Thanksgiving the best day of the year.
Thanksgiving falls during peak fall time, so we have a few ideas put together already. We recommend starting your morning with an apple cider mimosa because you can’t drink all day if you don’t start early! And you can’t have the best Thanksgiving if you don’t start it the right way. If this mimosa sounds familiar, you may remember it from our Halloween festivities; as you can tell, this is the best way to start any holiday!
As you’re preparing food for the day, we recommend serving up a pumpkin roll or two. This is a light and simple way to replace your morning coffee. All this drink calls for is our Dumplin Creek Pumpkin Patch moonshine and some french vanilla creamer.
Thanksgiving has been celebrated for centuries, so why not make a classic drink to go along with your turkey and ham? Our Old Fashioned calls for a few ounces of our Thunder Road 101 bourbon, a touch of maple syrup, and a few dashes of orange bitters. The flavors complement the saltiness of the meat as well as the sweetness of cranberries and dessert. It just doesn’t get better than that!
Speaking of desserts – we have the recipes for the perfect Thanksgiving nightcap. The first is simple but goes with the theme of the day: cranberry cosmo. Use our Dumplin Creek Vodka and add cranberry juice and a squeeze of lime. If you have any left from the morning or you feel like taking it up a notch, add a splash of champagne to complete this drink. A delightful take on a traditional cosmopolitan, complete with cranberry juice and champagne – a few ingredients Thanksgiving should be made of!
If you’d rather drink your dessert than eat it, we’ve got you covered. Try making our S’mores and Cream or Thin Mint moonshine-based drinks. They are both delicious and make the perfect liquid dessert.
Thanksgiving is the perfect time to celebrate all of the good things in your life with your family and close friends while eating delicious food and drinking amazing drinks. We know that the right drinks can bring people together in more ways than one which is why we have shared a few of our favorites with you.
