Thanksgiving Margarita

Transport your taste buds to Thanksgiving bliss with this festive and flavorful Thanksgiving Margarita!

Begin by creating the perfect salted rim: pour a 1/4" layer of salt on a small plate. Run a lime along the rim of your cocktail glass, then gently press the rim into the salt, giving your drink a savory kick with every sip. Scoop ice into the glass, filling it about 3/4 of the way, and squeeze the remaining lime wedge over the ice.

In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, combine the apple cider, pear juice, gold tequila, and Grand Marnier. Shake vigorously for about 15 seconds, then strain the mixture over the prepared cocktail glass. Finish this delightful concoction with a whole cinnamon stick, adding a touch of warmth and visual appeal to your Thanksgiving cocktail.

Apple Cider Moscow Mule

This refreshing Apple Cider Moscow Mule will make your Thanksgiving gathering memorable for everyone!

Grab a copper mug, run a lime across half of the rim, and press it into some Sweet Honey Pecan rub. Then fill it with ice to about 3/4 full. Add 2 ounces of vodka, 4 ounces of ginger beer, and 2 ounces of apple cider. Add a cinnamon stick and use it to give the cocktail a gentle stir. Finally, garnish your mug with a slice of fresh apple and a slice of lime for an appealing presentation that perfectly complements the festive spirit of Thanksgiving.

Bourbon Pecan Pie Cocktail

Round off your Thanksgiving drink trio with Kosmo's favorite, the Bourbon Pecan Pie Cocktail!

Begin by preparing a Sweet Honey Pecan rim: Run a lime halfway around the rim of your cocktail glass, then press the rim into the rub. Add ice to the glass (consider using an ice ball for an extra fancy touch). Now add 1 ounce Maker's Mark Bourbon, 1 ½ ounces Evangeline Pecan Praline liqueur, and ½ ounce of your favorite vodka. Stir the ingredients vigorously until well mixed.

Garnish your creation with maraschino cherries and whole, unshelled pecans, turning your drink into a delightful drink, also known as "Thanksgiving Iced Tea". Sip, savor, and enjoy the company of your loved ones!
