14 Cocktails To Serve This Thanksgiving

I'm usually focused on which bottles of wine to open on Thanksgiving, but there's a place for a cocktail on Turkey Day, too.

Whether you're looking to jazz up a little bubbly with bitters and citrus or whet your appetite with an unusual aperitif, here's a little recipe inspiration. Signature Thanksgiving ingredients like cranberries, pumpkin, and apples are a great way to tie your meal and beverages together, though we know some of you are just looking for another excuse to bring out the bourbon. If you're hosting Thanksgiving this year, check out the slideshow and get your liquor cabinet stocked.
