Thanksgiving Cocktails

Whether you need a break from all of the holiday planning, want to have a relaxing night with friends or you need something new to spice up your holiday….here are some great cocktail recipes to try.


Pumpkin Pie

  • 1 part kahlua
  • 1 part spiced pumpkin pie filling
  • 2 parts coconut rum
  • 4 parts cold milk
  • 6 ice cubes
  • Garnish with cinnamon

Put everything but the cinnamon in a blender. Mix on high. Serve in graham cracker crust highball glasses and sprinkle the top with cinnamon.

If you are daring, try this:

Turkey Shooter

  • 3 parts Wild Turkey
  • 1 part crème de methe

Chill both ingredients. Pour the Wild Turkey into a brandy snifter then carefully float the crème de methe on top. The whiskey will warm you up while the mint flavor keeps you cool.


Turkey Trot

  • 1 part bourbon
  • 2 parts 7-Up
  • 2 parts cranberry juice

Mix everything in a highball glass and drink on the rocks.

The New Moon movie premieres this week and I am so excited to see it.  I didn’t read the books when the first movie came out but a friend talked me into starting them and I was hooked!

Here is some inspiration if you are throwing a New Moon party:
