Fall cocktails are fun to make using ingredients of the season, such as apple, pumpkin, cinnamon, cranberry, and pear.   Did you know that you can pair cocktails with food, just as you pair wine?  Different ingredients in the cocktails, such as juices, bitters, and even the alcohol itself can bring out the savory and sweet flavors of Thanksgiving food, enhancing the dining experience.  Don’t believe me?  Try some of these ten perfect Thanksgiving cocktails and see for yourself how well they pair!

Appetizers

Pair Rosemary Pear Champagne cocktails,  Cranberry Margaritas, or Tangerine Bourbon cocktails with savory appetizers with cheese, meat, and vegetables such as these brie and pepper jelly bites or candied bacon lollipops.
