Happy Thanksgiving!

If you're like many people, you'll be spending Thanksgiving with family . . . perhaps your in-laws. Go ahead and make your Thanksgiving Holiday a tad more enjoyable by making yourself a stiff drink. Here are some ideas:

Pumpkin Mojito

1.25 oz Rum (Or more, depending on how much you like your family)
A Handful of Mint Leaves
1 Tbsp Pumpkin
1/2 Lime
1 Tbsp Brown Sugar
2 oz Club Soda

First, muddle the mint leaves and sugar. Next, add the rum, pumpkin, club soda, and juice from 1/2 a lime. Mix well, add ice and garnish with extra mint leaves.

Apple Pie Cocktail

1 tsp Grenadine

1 tsp Lemon juice
1 oz Light Rum (Again, feel free to use as much as you feel necessary)
0.5 oz Sweet Vermouth
0.5 oz Apple Brandy

First, fill a shaker half full with ice cubes. Pour all of the ingredients into shaker and shake well. Strain drink into a cocktail glass and drink up!

Cranberry Margarita

1 1/2 oz Tequila
1 1/2 oz Triple Sec
1 oz Lime Juice
2 oz Cranberry Juice
1 1/2 oz Sweet and Sour Mix

Pour all ingredients into blender with ice. Blend until smooth. Enjoy!

Happy Thanksgiving!!
