Thanksgiving is a wonderful time of year filled with great food, friends, football, and family. However, everyone knows that family, while totally wonderful and awesome and, like, the bestest thing ever, can also make you sorta want to pull your hair out. Parents nag, uncles tell the same old stories, aunts ask you why you’re not married, siblings bring home weird boyfriends and/or girlfriends, and grandparents complain about how you don’t come visit enough.
In other words, Thanksgiving can be pretty stressful. This is precisely why, in addition to turkey and candied yams and cranberry sauce, every Thanksgiving feast needs an excellent array of cocktails. And that’s what we have for you today: 15 great cocktails tailor-made for Thanksgiving. So grab a pen and paper, take a look, and plan on stopping by the liquor store on the way home from work tonight. You’ll thank me come Monday.
