7 Easy-to-Make Cranberry Drinks to Enjoy With Thanksgiving Dinner
Every Thanksgiving menu has a main dish (usually turkey or some meat-free alternative) along with several sides as well as pies and other sweet treats for dessert, but the Thanksgiving drink is often overlooked in favor of typical beverages like water or wine.
However, if you'd like to craft a designated libation for your holiday feast this year (or want to upgrade your usual choice) there are several easy-to-make cranberry drinks that will take your Turkey Day celebration to the next level. Not only do these drinks look festive and taste delicious, but they're also a clever way to use up any extra cranberries you may have lying around after you've finished making your cranberry sauce. Even if you're not hosting Thanksgiving this year, these beverages (including some alcohol-free options) make a great potluck contribution.
What's more? These drinks, which call for either fresh or frozen cranberries or cranberry juice cocktail, (sometimes both) require very little effort to prepare. In fact, some can be made ahead of time, and many of them are crafted with ingredients you likely already have at home. Additionally, because of the obvious cranberry inclusion, you can rest assured that these drinks will pair well with any Thanksgiving meal.
