TIP OF THE DAY: Serve Seasonal Alcoholic Drinks Over Thanksgiving Weekend

After Thanksgiving dinner, or at other times over the long weekend, you may want to sit back and relax with a glass of liqueur.

Serve a seasonal flavor. Earlier this week we wrote about Kahlúa Cinnamon Spice liqueur. Here are some other options:

  • Apple schnapps, such as 99 Apples (not DeKuyper Sour Apple Pucker, unless you want to pucker)
  • Cinnamon liqueur, such as After Shock
  • Ginger liqueur, such as Domaine de Canton and The King’s Ginger
  • Hazelnut liqueur, such as Frangelico
  • Pear liqueur or Poire Williams eau de vie (fruit brandy)—it’s made from the Williams pear, which is why Poire William is an incorrect spelling (in the U.S. it’s known as the Bartlett pear)
  • Pomegranate liqueur, such as Pama
  • Pumpkin liqueur, such as Hiram Walker Pumpkin Spice liqueur—or you can make your own pumpkin liqueur (see below)
  • Walnut liqueur, such as Nocello
    A bottle of any of these also makes a nice house gift.


    The King’s Ginger was formulated for King Edward VII. But you can enjoy the ginger flavor for Thanksgiving. Photo courtesy The King’s Ginger.


    If you have cordial glasses (also called liqueur glasses and schnapps glasses), it’s a good time to use them.

    We actually prefer brandy snifters, which narrow at the top to keep in the aromas. Whiskey tasting glasses do the same thing.

    You can make your own pumpkin liqueur. All you need is fresh pumpkin, a bottle of 100-proof vodka, sugar, lemon and pumpkin pie spice.

    Start now: The liqueur needs to distill in a jar for one to two weeks.
