Libation Library


Leftover Lounge
Posted on April 20, 2019 by in Spirits

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.


  • ● 1 bottle red wine
  • ● 1/4 cup orange juice
  • ● 1/4 cup brandy
  • ● 3 tbsp sugar
  • ● Orange
  • ● Lemon


  • Combine the wine, OJ, brandy, sugar, orange and lemon in a large saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat and stir for 5 minutes. Remove from the stove and set aside 15 minutes.
  • (Optional: Strain out fruit and reheat before serving.)

Apple Pie Pumpkin Beer Cocktail

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. Pair it with a warmed-up plate of turkey and mashed potatoes for a piece of post-holiday bliss.


  • ● 1 cup bourbon
  • ● 1 cup apple cider
  • ● 2 1/2 oz lemon juice
  • ● 1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
  • ● 1 1/2 cup pumpkin ale
  • ● Cinnamon sticks and cranberries (for garnish)


  • Shake together the bourbon, apple cider and lemon juice in a cocktail shaker.
  • Fill glasses just below half full, then add beer.
