Thanksgiving Signature Cocktails


When hosting for the holidays, we love featuring a signature cocktail.  It’s a tradition in both our homes!


  • It sends a message to your guests that they are special.
  • It shows you put thought and time into hosting family and friends.
  • It’s fun and festive and can enhance the vibe, theme and even food at your holiday celebration.


  • A non-alcoholic version of your signature cocktail is a must for Considerate Entertaining. There are a myriad of reasons that your friends and family may choose not to “drink“, ranging from being the designated driver to pregnancy.  Don’t relegate these guests to the soda bar, offer them a mocktail version of your signature cocktail.
  • Also be sure to remember the children  – they are your most impressionable guests.  When you host them for the holiday you have the unique opportunity to create memories for them that will last a lifetime.  A signature drink like the Shirley Temple with Stripes below is a great way to make them feel special too!


We love these two cocktails for Thanksgiving and Holiday entertaining.
