Only a few days left before we find ourselves surrounded by friends, family, and food. But what would Thanksgiving be without a few festive cocktails to help wash down that turkey. Nothing says Thanksgiving like Bourbon so here are a few cocktails courtesy of Wild Turkey and Master Sommelier Fred Dexheimer.
1 oz Wild Turkey 101
1/4 oz almond liqueur
1/4 oz cinnamon schnapps
2 oz pumpkin pie filling
1/2 oz heavy cream
Puree or froth pumpkin pie filling with heavy cream. Mix with other ingredients in a shaker with ice; shake well and strain into a martini glass. Rim with crumbled graham crackers and a cinnamon stick; top with a dash of cinnamon or nutmeg.
Pass the Turkey
