Thanksgiving Cocktails!

Whether you are planning your wedding or simply having a gathering of friends, we love signature drinks and Thanksgiving is no exception!

WHY WE LOVE THEM

  • It sends a message to your guests that they are special.
  • It shows you put thought and time into hosting family and friends.
  • It’s fun and festive and can enhance the vibe, theme and even food at your holiday celebration.

BE A CONSIDERATE HOST

  • A non-alcoholic version of your signature cocktail is a must for Considerate Entertaining. There are a myriad of reasons that your friends and family may choose not to “drink“, ranging from being the designated driver to pregnancy.  Don’t relegate these guests to the soda bar, offer them a mocktail version of your signature cocktail.
  • Also be sure to remember the children  – they are your most impressionable guests.  When you host them for the holiday you have the unique opportunity to create memories for them that will last a lifetime.  A signature drink is a great way to make them feel special too! Link
