Cooking Ingredient Cocktails

Use up those ingredients!

This is one of the best ways to create cocktails for your holiday events: use the ingredients you already have on hand for the meal! It's a great way to cut down on spending and waste while still managing to get a few great cocktails on the menu. From cranberries to apple cider, butternut squash (for real!) to lemons and limes, there are several items you will probably already have on hand that will make excellent drinks for Thanksgiving.

The great thing about this list is that there are some kiddie ideas, too, such as using fresh apples with your cider so the kids can enjoy some festive drinks for the occasion. There are also recipes with items like maple syrup or bacon to help infuse your drinks with wild flavors that you might not normally make for a gathering and will be a much appreciated new twist for your guests.

Which drinks are on your Thanksgiving menu?
