Cheers To Eating Entirely Too Much
Just when you thought you couldn't possibly consume one more thing, someone suggests a tasty after-dinner drink too good to resist. Don't neglect the post dinner hour by simply wallowing in over-stuffed misery. Serve up a few festive cocktails and say cheers to one more Thanksgiving in the books.
If you make it through the pre-meal snacks, the wine list, the feast and dessert and are still longing for one last treat to push you over the edge, an after-dinner drink will do the trick. After-dinner cocktails may help you forget about the fact that you are uncomfortably full or that you just consumed more calories in one meal than you do on most days.
Before we get into a few cocktail recipes, it is a good idea to stock your Thanksgiving bar with some after-dinner favorites. These spirits are often served straight or over ice. They are also good to have around to mix with coffee or cream.
Of course you can prepare the standard after-dinner drinks such as Irish coffee, White Russians or hot toddies, but if you want something unique and a bit more festive, here are a few cocktail recipes.
Peppermint mocha recipe
This warm beverage will take you right into the Christmas spirit since Thanksgiving is over after all. You may even pull out the Christmas decorations after sipping on this after-dinner favorite.
The snuggie recipe
After a big meal, you'll want to feel extra cozy, so the cocktail artisans at Sobieski vodka created this cocktail recipe named after winter's favorite modern invention. By invention, we mean someone's idea to get rich off of wearing a robe backwards. Either way you'll love this cocktail just as much as you love your reversed robe.
Vanilla caramel pilgrim recipe
What's Thanksgiving without a pilgrim? This one doesn't wear any sort of strange outfit; it just tastes delicious.
