Raise a glass to the holiday with these Thanksgiving vodka cocktails.
These festive libations are perfect for sipping pre-dinner or as an after-dinner treat.
Not everyone is big on wine. Others might want something fancier than beer.
That’s why vodka cocktails are so great. The neutral base is easy to infuse with all sorts of seasonal flavors.
Cranberry, pumpkin, espresso, apple, or pear, pick your flavor of choice.
There’s nothing like a quality cocktail, delicious feast, and good company to celebrate the holiday.
Whatever you choose, these Thanksgiving vodka cocktails will bring a little extra cheer your way.
Looking for a classy cocktail to pair with your Thanksgiving appetizers? I have just the thing!
This four-ingredient cocktail is elegant, fruity, and easy.
Pour vodka, cranberry juice, and apple juice into a champagne flute. Then, top it off with sparkling wine.
I’m partial to prosecco myself. Although, champagne is great, too.
Just make sure it’s not the super sweet kind. There’s already enough sugar in the juice.
With this festive libation, you can have a mocktail or cocktail.
For the latter, you need quality vodka and orange liqueur like Cointreau.
For a mocktail, stick with cranberry juice and swap out the alcohol for a sparkling orange drink.
Either way, the orange sugar rimmed glasses are a fun touch.
Any holiday is a good time for a margarita. Even Thanksgiving!
This isn’t your usual margarita, though. Quite the contrary, it’s designed just for this holiday.
Pear juice, pumpkin apple cider, and pear vodka infuse a base of tequila and lime. Add a cinnamon stick for a warming garnish.
It’s crisp, sweet, and fruity. Watch out, it’s also deceptively boozy.
With so much happening in the kitchen, the last thing you need is a complicated drink.
That’s why I love making this batch cocktail for Thanksgiving. It trades in the cocktail shaker for a blender instead.
You blend a fresh cranberry puree, add it to vodka, and top off with sparkling water.
A twist of lime is a nice flavor enhancer. Although, it’s not an absolute must.
If you consider yourself to be a fan of pumpkin spice, you need to try this martini.
It’s a creamy concoction featuring Bailey’s, pumpkin spice liqueur, and whipped cream vodka.
Since vodka is so neutral, you can use regular vodka too.
Yet, I just love the addition of the whipped cream flavor.
The essence of whipped cream makes it even more decadent.
Not big on pumpkin spice? No problem, make it a cranberry martini instead.
This crowd-pleaser is sweet, tart, citrusy, and simple.
It’s so easy, in fact, anyone can make it in 5 minutes or less.
You pour vodka, simple syrup, cranberry juice, and orange liqueur into a cocktail shaker. Give it a good shake, then strain.
For a less sweet version, ditch the simple syrup.
Here’s an easy cocktail for the Thanksgiving chefs to wet their whistle while whipping up a feast.
It’s a vodka-based martini infused with pomegranate juice, simple syrup, and Cointreau.
I just love how it glistens in a martini glass. More importantly, I love how it tastes.
It’s not too fruity or too boozy. It’s just right.
This autumn cocktail is dangerously good. Fizzy, fruity, and spiced, you can’t even taste the booze.
Salted caramel vodka sets the tone. While ginger ale and apple cider make it a party.
For the final touch, rim the glasses in cinnamon sugar and top with apple slices.
Serve a round of these and everyone will want the recipe. Little do they know, there’s nothing to it.
Prefer your dessert in liquid form? Skip the pie and reach for an apple pie martini instead.
This is a clever use of vodka, cinnamon schnapps, and apple cider.
With a few extra additions, it’s all dressed up for Thanksgiving.
If you’re more of an apple pie person than a pumpkin person, you’ll love it.
Although, I think even pumpkin pie lovers can appreciate it too.
Punch is the perfect batch cocktail. Everyone can help themselves and you can make it in advance.
When Thanksgiving rolls around, you’ll be ready with this recipe.
All you need are four ingredients and a pitcher large enough to serve ten people.
If you’re feeling fancy, add some garnishes like cranberries, apple slices, and fresh mint.
The Cape Codder is a super simple drink. It has vodka and it has cranberry juice.
That’s the perfect base for a Thanksgiving cocktail.
With the addition of apple cider and apple liqueur, it’s ready for imbibing.
Trust me, your guests will love it!
Watch out turkey, this apple cider martini just might steal the show!
Crisp and sweet, it’s a fantastic Thanksgiving treat.
It’s a bit more involved than some of the other martinis, but it’s nothing you can’t do in 10 minutes.
The spiced apple cider, caramel sauce, cinnamon sugar, and smooth vodka make it all worth it.
Moscow mules are one of the best vodka drinks.
The ginger beer and twist of lime create a sensational flavor. Add a splash of apple cider and it’s ready for Thanksgiving.
Whether you’re serving appetizers, dinner, or dessert, it’s the perfect addition.
Plus, it doesn’t hurt that you can mix it up in no time.
Bust out all the stops this Thanksgiving with this martini.
Elderflower liqueur instantly makes it more sophisticated while the pear vodka and lemon juice make it refreshing.
Add just enough simple syrup to sweeten. You want to enhance rather than mask the vodka in this drink.
Sangria is one of my favorite batch cocktails. Brunches, birthdays, or happy hours, it’s fit for a crowd.
So if you’re planning a big Thanksgiving feast, add this one to the list.
It’s a white sangria, so it’s lighter and crisper.
You want to use a white wine that’s on the drier side. Pinot Grigio is a top choice.
Also, use quality unflavored vodka and orange liqueur. As for the fruit, seasonal fruits like apples and pears will do.
For an after-dinner sipper, mix a round of pumpkin-flavored White Russians.
It starts with a base of vodka and Kahlua. Then it maxes out the pumpkin-spiced flavor.
The pumpkin spice, pumpkin-flavored creamer, and pumpkin puree make it taste like dessert.
It’s so good, you don’t even need the pie.
But it is Thanksgiving after all.
So have your pie and your cocktail too. There’s no judgment here, I’m doing the same thing.
17. Espresso Martini
Here’s another after-dinner delight for the coffee crowd.
It’s frothy, robust, and rife with coffee.
From baked apples to pecan pie, It pairs well with a range of Thanksgiving desserts.
Yet, it’s tasty enough for those that are too full for another bite.
