Thanksgiving isn’t just about the food anymore — we found 9 drinks that have the flavor of the holiday

We're totally digging these Thanksgiving inspired drinks that we can enjoy year round.

Ah, Thanksgiving — you’ve spent days planning your menu and ordered your oversized turkey well in advance. The table has been set and the guests will be arriving soon. It’s a lot of work for one day! Although Thanksgiving is arguably one of the most delicious holidays to celebrate, it can be a pain to spend hours, even days, cooking with only one meal of indulgent glory. The leftovers only last a few days and then we’re in turkey withdrawal and we start dreaming about ways to get our Thanksgiving fix all year-round. But now we found a solution — we can drink Thanksgiving.

Jones Soda Co., the popular, unique soda company, has at time come out with flavors that are crazy enough to make you want to gag, but many that also make your mouth water. Their turkey-flavored soda had us sold the minute we laid eyes on it. It might be a limited-edition novelty, but it was enough to get us thinking. From there we delved further in the beverage world and found cranberry-flavored vodka, banana-bread-flavored beer, pumpkin-flavored coffee, and even a green been smoothie.

It might sound crazy, but you can now drink the delicious flavors of Thanksgiving year-round. Who wouldn't love the flavors of turkey, stuffing, cranberries, and even a little bit of banana bread in a bottle? Whether you’re drinking it in a soda, a coffee, or even a beer, the flavors we enjoy on one day of the year are now spreading to our fridges on all 365. So without further ado, here are nine drinks that actually taste like Thanksgiving that you can enjoy when it’s not necessarily the official Turkey Day.


11 easy Thanksgiving cocktail recipes that are delicious and beautiful

Hosting Thanksgiving dinner this year? Warm up your family and friends with a seasonally inspired cocktail. We've selected some of the best boozy recipes from Pinterest that have been shared over and over again, with seasonal flavors like pumpkin, cranberry, cinnamon and apple. These drinks are seriously good, and super easy to make. So take a sip and enjoy!

A holiday spin on one of our favorite drinks, this cranberry margarita is sure to be a crowd pleaser at your Thanksgiving dinner. And the recipe is no-fuss — you just mix all ingredients in one pitcher and serve.

If you’re looking to liven up your Thanksgiving gathering this year, try whipping up a batch of this apple pie punch, made with a refreshing mix of apple cider, pear nectar and ginger ale.

This combination of red wine, brandy, cinnamon and apple cider makes for a lovely fall twist on a holiday classic.

We love pumpkin flavored anything, and this pumpkin pie martini is no exception. The combination of cinnamon, ginger and other seasonal spices makes each sip sweet and delicious, so you can have it as dessert!

Combine pumpkin puree with vanilla and pumpkin spice creamer to make this irresistible concoction, which can be made with or without alcohol.

Sure, we love classic hot chocolate. But this grown-up boozy white-chocolate pumpkin spin (which can be made with bourbon or Kahlua) is the perfect for any cold weather gathering.

There is a reason this impressive looking but super easy drink has been shared over and over on Pinterest, and this drink certainly lives up to its name. Cranberry juice gives the cocktail its festive color, while sparkling wine (or nonalcoholic cider) makes it bubbly and bright.

Mix up a batch of these seasonal gin and tonics using leftover thyme and cranberries from your Thanksgiving dinner.

This cocktail gets a silky smooth texture from Kahlua and a warming kick from schnapps.

A classic Mexican drink is altered to include pumpkin, cinnamon sugar, and of course — booze! It's so good, we wish it could be Thanksgiving all year round.

Those who love apple-flavored anything will adore this take on the margarita. Even better — it takes just five minutes to prepare!

Iced Moroccan-Style Mint Tea

Time: 20 minutes plus 1 hour chilling

1 tablespoon Chinese full-leaf green tea, preferably gunpowder

½ cup spearmint leaves, packed, plus sprigs for garnish

¼ cup honey, or more to taste

1. Brew tea with 3 cups water in a teapot with a strainer, allowing it to steep 10 minutes.

2. Place mint in a small bowl. Add 1 cup boiling water, and muddle the mint. Set aside to steep 5 minutes. Stir in honey. Strain into a 6-cup pitcher.

3. Slowly pour brewed tea into the pitcher, holding the teapot at least a foot above the pitcher — this is the essential Moroccan technique to aerate the tea. Taste tea for sweetness and adjust the amount of honey if needed. Refrigerate at least 1 hour.

60 Thanksgiving Cocktails That'll Let You Toast the Holiday in Style

These fall-inspired Thanksgiving drinks will keep everyone in good cheer.

After days (or weeks) of planning the big Thanksgiving menu, it's the big day. You wake up early to get the pies done, start making your favorite mashed potato recipe, get out the turkey recipe you planned, and start prepping the bird to get it in the oven, cooking low and slow so you don't end up with burnt turkey.

Then the guests arrive. Oh no! What are you going to do to keep them occupied while you're finishing dinner? This is the time to put out some Thanksgiving appetizers and make sure everyone has a sufficiently seasonal cocktail in hand.

To help you out, we've rounded up a few dozen of our favorite fall cocktails. You can assign a guest or spouse to be the house bartender, or simply scale some of these recipes up into a big, pitcher-size batch, and let guests help themselves. But each of these are made with the best flavors of autumn. And because many of these libations are fairly sweet, they could even take the place of Thanksgiving desserts for the adults at the dinner table&mdashor just be a great complement to them. It's a holiday, after all!

Pumpkin lovers will enjoy sipping on the pumpkin spice white Russian, the pumpkin pie punch, or the pumpkin spice martini. For those who prefer apple-infused Thanksgiving cocktails, you've come to the right place. We recommend mixing up the apple butter old fashioned cocktail, the cinnamon bourbon apple cider, or the caramel apple martini. And if you're in the mood for something totally different, the sage and cranberry sauce cocktail, the fig and thyme rum cocktail, and the spiked pear cider are all fabulous options. Cheers!


Festive Drinks To Serve This Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is officially right around the corner. If you’ve taken on the big task of hosting this year’s feast, there’s a lot to think about when it comes to the menu. While your mind may be focused on the main dishes, such as the turkey, mashed potatoes and stuffing, don’t forget about what your guests will be sipping. While wine is a typical option, why not serve some water-based beverage options that are both festive and balance out a heavy feast? These Thanksgiving drinks, including apple water, orange water and cranberry water, can help reenergize your guests as the food coma sets in.

Apple-Cinnamon Water

Nothing says “autumn,” quite like apple cider. For a lighter take, especially needed when devouring those heavier Thanksgiving dishes, try out Apple-Cinnamon Infused Water. In a large pitcher, combine thinly sliced apple slices and cinnamon sticks and fill with water. Prepare this the day before Thanksgiving to allow for proper infusion and also to take off the day-of pressure. Right before serving, strain the water into another pitcher, fill with ice cubes and pair with dessert for a refreshing, slightly sweet and balanced drink.

Ginger-Cinnamon Tea

For a warm, after dinner drink, Ginger-Cinnamon Tea will get your guests feeling cozy and comfortable. Heat up ginger and cinnamon with water in a saucepan. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to low, simmer for approximately five minutes. Strain the mixture before serving. The cinnamon keeps with the seasonal fall theme while the ginger may help to soothe the digestive system after a much-enjoyed feast.

Orange, Cranberry and Sage Infused Water

  • 2 liters water
  • 2 oranges, peeled and sectioned
  • 1 cup cranberries
  • 1 handful sage leaves

This year’s cranberry sauce might have some competition with Orange, Cranberry and Sage Infused Water. Infuse orange slices, cranberries and sage leaves together in two liters of water overnight. The drink has a mix of sweet and savory flavors, which will pair nicely with the main turkey dish.

Whether it’s apple-infused water or hot cinnamon-flavored tea, these festive Thanksgiving drink recipes require quality filtered water to match. Culligan is here to ensure your water system is filtering to the highest standards, because your guests deserve the best water-based drinks with the best meal of the year!


Sidra House

Hailing from New York City’s PDT, this fall-fruit-flavored drink pairs well with food and is great on its own, making it perfect for sipping any time. Shake rum, apple cider, sherry, pear brandy and allspice dram with ice, then fine-strain and serve garnished with an apple fan. Extra bonus points for serving it with a light sprinkle of cinnamon.
