Thanksgiving Cocktails

When I think of Thanksgiving or ~fall~ cocktails, I don’t necessarily think of Tequila. But why the hell not? It’s one of my favorite spirits and it’s practically good for you.


 

A) It’s the only alcohol that’s an upper. True story. Google it.

B) It’s got enough flavor that you don’t casually forget your drinking and get too drunk

C) It’s just delicious. Do I really need to elaborate here?

My friends at Casamigos sent over some recipes that are perfect for the upcoming holiday. Take a look and then a sip because these will not disappoint.
