Thanksgiving Cocktail and Mocktail Ideas

The Refreshments

One of our favorite party tricks is setting a drink station up outside of the kitchen, then letting guests mix their own cocktails and mocktails. A thoughtful move that keeps them out of the action-packed kitchen? Sounds like a win-win to us.

Mulled Wine

The only thing better than a bottle of wine? One that’s been simmered with citrus and spices.

Batch Sangrias

Sangria takes the season’s best fruits and amplifies it with fragrant ingredients. For a ruby-hued sangria: a vanilla cinnamon simple sugar, red wine, and brandy make for a refreshingly sweet and citrusy drink. If you prefer white: a spiced ginger syrup and woody rosemary.

Sweet and Spicy Mocktails

Simple juice (homemade or otherwise) turns into specialty drink with a few fresh ingredients and a splash of seltzer or lemon-lime soda. Though, to turn these mocktails into cocktails, ditch the seltzer in place of champagne or a splash of gin or vodka.
