Drink Recipes For Thanksgiving

In: Charge It, Donovan

Happy Thanksgiving to all our American readers. Hopefully, you’re all having a great day with your friends and loved ones. Nothing says holiday like a tasty cocktail, right?

Since our previous posts sharing drink recipes proved really popular, I thought I’d share a few more for this festive holiday. Our friends at EFFEN Vodka, JDK & Sons, Cruzan and Basil Hayden’s sent over drink suggestions you might want to serve your guests this holiday weekend. I haven’t tried any of them yet, but the Cruzan® Pilgrim Punch and EFFEN® Cinnamon Fizz sound delicious. Check out all the recipes below and remember to drink responsibly.

EFFEN® Spiced Chai-tini

  • 1 1/2 parts Chai infused EFFEN® Vodka
  • 3/4 part Kamora® Coffee Liqueur
  • 1 part Half and Half
  • 3 dashes Cinnamon

Method: In a mixing glass, combine all ingredients over ice. Lightly shake, and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with grated nutmeg.
EFFEN Chai Infusion: Place 3 bags of Twinings® Indian Spiced Chai Tea into a bottle of EFFEN Vodka and remove after two hours. Agitate bottle every hour.

The hours are counting down and for some of you, you’ve already rang in the New Year. To those of you who have done so, don’t tell us the future. For those of us in the Western Hemisphere who are still awaiting midnight, we have a few drink recipes to share with you if you’re still looking for that last minute addition to your house party.

To warm up your guests, serve them the EFFEN® Savory cocktail. Recently served exclusively at Zac Posen’s Holiday Party, Zac stated that “the EFFEN Savory was a clean and chic cocktail – it was a great way to celebrate in style with my friends and studio family.” The party may have been exclusive (so exclusive we weren’t even invited…) BUT we were fortunate enough to get the recipe to share with you.

To switch up the tradition of toasting champagne when the clock strikes twelve, mix it up by handing out the Basil Hayden’s® Apple Bubbly. It’s the easiest mixed drink you’ll make all night. Plus, it’s garnished with an apple slice. Who doesn’t love that? Check out this delicious recipes below.

A comparative review of two excellent small batch, limited quantity, bourbons.

This fall I’ve been enjoying two new additions to my liquor cabinet. Both are of a same family of spirit and step outside my normal stomping ground. Just in time for your Christmas list, I will be reviewing and comparing two bourbons, Knob Creek and Basil Hayden’s here.

To start off -Try Bourbon! I have absolutely enjoyed the experience. Bourbon is not something you will likely go out to a dance club and order, it’s special. Perfect as a nightcap, afterwork treat, or with a delicious dinner. This holiday season I can imagine sitting with family and friends enjoying hot bourbon after a day on the slopes.
