Thanksgiving Cocktail Recipes
A few tempting signature drink ideas for your Thanksgiving Soriee, featuring some very Thanksgiving-appropriate ingredients…

Pumpkin Pie – features Kahlua, Malibu Rum, Milk, Cinnamon, and Pumpkin Pie Filling {recipe via – see below for our modified version}
Gingersnap cocktail – features spiced rum, ginger brandy, eggnog, and a gingersnap cookie! {recipe via}
Pumpkin Divine martini – features Grey Goose La Poire flavored vodka, pumpkin butter (!), Triple Sec, clove, and nutmeg – amongst other things {recipe via}
Spiced Apple mixer from Stirrings – a blend of real apples, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Make life easy – just add vodka and serve!

Pumpkin Pie Cocktail Recipe Modification:
We tested the *original recipe for the Pumpkin Pie cocktail today – and found it to be way too “pumpkin-y” for our taste – so here’s a modified version of the recipe that we liked better, with a much more subtle hint of pumpkin:

• 1 oz Malibu rum
• 1 oz Kahlua
• 6 oz milk
• 1/3 tsp cinnamon
• 1/2 to 1 tsp pumpkin pie filling (depending on desired taste)

Blend all ingredients together in a blender with a few cubes of ice. Serve in a glass rimmed with very finely crushed graham cracker crumbs. Sprinkle more cinnamon on top for garnish. Enjoy!

*(original recipe ingredients: 1 oz Malibu rum, 1/2 oz Kahlua, 2 oz milk, 3/4 oz pumpkin pie filling, ice, cinnamon for garnish)

    Thanks for the pumpkin pie modification! The eggnog drink looks like it’s frozen, it looks awfully whipped don’t you think? I was curious to try it, but I don’t like spiked egg nog and if that’s all it is, then I probably won’t like it.

    hi anon-
    The Gingersnap is very much a spiked eggnog recipe – so you definitely need to be a spiked eggnog lover to like that one! maybe one of the others is a better option for you ;)

    The pumpkin pie drink was very good. I dipped the glass into chocolate syrup then into the graham cracker crumbs or spiced cookies.
