Thanksgiving is undeniably a holiday that celebrates cooking. But that doesn’t mean bartending should be forgotten or brushed aside. Along with baking and roasting, Thanksgiving is a great chance to perfect your mixology skills. Here, five festive drinks so good they’ll rival the pumpkin pie.
Sparkling Pomegranate Punch: Easy to make for a crowd, this bubbly, sweet-tart cocktail combines sparkling wine, dessert wine and deep-red pomegranate juice.
Pomme en Croute: This apple-scented cocktail is a riff on the Brandy Crusta, a classic Cognac cocktail first made in New Orleans in 1852. This version calls for appley Calvados in place of the traditional Cognac.
Rosé Sangria with Cranberries and Apples: Strong but not overly sweet, this seasonal sangria is nicely spiced with cinnamon, anise and cloves. It includes just enough crushed red pepper to give it a tiny kick.
Pomegranate Margaritas: It may not seem like the season for margaritas, but it definitely is the season for these sweet-tart margaritas made with ruby red pomegranate juice. Make one big batch and serve in a pitcher at the table.
Gaelic Punch: A terrific end-of-the-meal cocktail, this hot whiskey punch is best made with a young Irish whiskey. Heat intensifies the tannic edge of older whiskeys; young ones stay smooth.
