Good day all, one week from today is the official ultimate food holiday in America, but instead of turkey and dressing I’m thinking about cocktails. Today we are going to look at some cocktail concoctions with the theme of Autumn and Thanksgiving, whether you’re dining with 2 people or 22, all friends, family or both sometimes you just need a tasty adult beverage, so join me today as we check out Thanksgiving Cocktails from the Food Network, Enjoy!!!

The Maple Perfect Manhattan


This is a twist on the traditional Manhattan recipe with a little maple syrup for sweetness and a touch of Autumn. (recipe here)

Orange-Spice Cocoa



Who doesn’t love hot Cocoa, and this version has a kick from the spice cardamom. (recipe here )

Cider Punch



Punch is always an easy and tasty choice, you can make it ahead of time and keep a bowl full ready for your guests or as easily in a pitcher, this version can be served hot or over ice. (recipe here)

Ginger Cranberry Cocktail



Vodka, Cranberries, and Ginger, what more do you need to know? (recipe here)

Frosty the Caramel Apple Pie



This cocktail had me at Butterscotch Schnapps and graham crackers on the glass rim. (recipe here)

Concord Grape Royal Recipe



As an adult I don’t drink enough grape juice, I loved it as a kid and this recipe might bring me back to the purple juice, especially since it has champagne. (recipe here )

Ginger Snap Cocktail



Ginger Snaps are one of my favorite cookies whatever time of year it is, I’m definitely going to try this concoction this fall. (recipe here )
