Thanksgiving Drinks and Dessert Recipes that Spark Joy
It’s that time of the year again when everything smells like pumpkin spice. This is just the beginning of the festive season (Christmas and New Year coming soon!), and that much awaited Thanksgiving Dinner is the start of how we will end the year with grace and gratitude.
We did some digging around and looked for the best recipes you could easily make for Thanksgiving. The following are highly recommended cocktail, coffee, and dessert recipes which will fill you with joy over Thanksgiving weekend.
THANKSGIVING PARTY COCKTAILS
Pumpkin Spice Martini – You’ll love how fun and delicious this holiday cocktail is. It’s easy to make and leaves a great impression to your guests.
Holiday Punch II – Looking for a delicious non-alcoholic drink? All it takes to make this punch is cranberry juice, unsweetened pineapple juice, ginger ale, and some sweetness.
Apple Pie Shot – Nothing celebrates Thanksgiving better than a cocktail version of an apple pie. Get some vodka, apple cider, whipped cream, and cinnamon to concoct this superb cocktail.
Cranberry Champagne Cocktail – This classy drink tops off any Thanksgiving dinner with flair. All you need are four ingredients that add up to a flavorful mix.
Thanksgiving’s a Breeze Seabreezes – The name of this drink seems promising, but this is definitely a great reward for all your hard work in preparing a Thanksgiving dinner. You just need three ingredients to make this one, plus some mint sprigs for garnish.
Cranberry Sangria – This Spanish summertime favorite is also perfect for the fall and winter months. Use seasonal fruits with red or white wine. This complex mix makes Thanksgiving more special.
THANKSGIVING COFFEE RECIPES
Coffee Liqueur – This is a no-fuss coffee liqueur recipe which you can use for food and drinks that require a flavored liqueur. We love how it mixes well with milk or vodka.
Easy Cinnamon Dolce Latte – This can easily be your favorite alternative to the usual Starbucks drink. The recipe requires a love for cinnamon and some strong brewed coffee.
Salted Caramel Mocha – This lush mocha recipe does justice to the mix of coffee, cocoa, milk and caramel sauce. You can’t go wrong with a little kosher salt, sugar, whipped cream, and caramel on top.
Coffee S’more Milkshake, Pumpkin Pie Frappuccino, and Easy Peppermint Syrup – Mr. Coffee made a list of top 3 coffee recipes to serve after thanksgiving dinner, which we definitely agree as awesome nightcap recipes. We recommend the Pumpkin Pie Frappuccino for those who can’t get enough of this season’s favorite.

THANKSGIVING PARTY DESSERTS
No Bake Mini Pumpkin Cheesecakes – This is the perfect dessert for fall, no baking required. You’ll need gingersnap cookies, Greek yogurt, cream cheese, pumpkin puree, vanilla extract – plus some sugar, spice and everything nice.
Pumpkin Pie in a Jar – We love this idea as take-home party favors for guests. You’ll need some graham crackers and whip up some pumpkin mousse.
Salted Caramel Apple Parfaits – This gluten-free, nut free, and dairy free dessert is perfect for any health buff who still wants to enjoy something delicious for Thanksgiving. You’ll definitely enjoy the delectable layers of apple filling, coconut salted caramel, and coconut crumble.
Caramel Apple Trifles – We love desserts in shot glasses (but you can serve them on espresso cups too). You’ll be preparing some caramel mousse, caramel sauce, and apple crumble. But these ingredients go a long way as you serve them in small portions.
Butterscotch Pudding Shooters – This is another shot glass dessert that packs a flavorful punch. The layers of butterscotch pudding, gingersnap crumb crust, and cinnamon spiced whipped cream are quite lush. We recommend these trendy glass cups for the perfect dessert servings.
