Why do leftovers somehow taste better than the holiday meal itself? Foodies and celebrity chefs have never figured out that culinary mystery, yet the phenomenon endures.
While a sandwich made from Thanksgiving turkey is a national classic, we wanted to take the whole holiday leftovers thing a step further by bringing libations into the mix. Savor the flavors of fall with our post-holiday cocktail recipes.
Now you can take that cozy, comfort-food feeling of the year’s biggest feast and infuse it into your beverage of choice. Relax after a crazy day of shopping on Black Friday or enjoy a cold drink while watching the game
We’re giving new life to some of our favorite Thanksgiving ingredients. Whether you’re into wine, spirits or beer, we have a guilty pleasure for every palate. No oyster stuffing shooters yet—but maybe next year.

Unlikely as the flavor combination may be, this carbonated concoction is Thanksgiving in a glass. In theory, dessert and beer shouldn’t mix, but the idea was just outrageous enough to be irresistible. Plus, it’s got the word pie in the name.
