Best Liqueurs To Serve At Thanksgiving Meal

Photo for:  Best Liqueurs To Serve At Thanksgiving Meal

24/11/2020 Thanksgiving Dinner will look very different this year for most of us but you’ll still want the booze to go with the meal. Here are the best Liqueurs to serve at Thanksgiving meal.

Besides turkey and mashed potatoes, booze has to be one of the chief additions to the Thanksgiving dinner table. Finding special and delicious bottles that complement every plate and every palate at your holiday gathering can sound intimidating, but we like to see it as an opportunity to think outside of your normal go-to's. While any night is a good night to explore a new style of liqueur, Thanksgiving is an ideal opportunity to take a dive into unfamiliar terroir.

Bespoke Bourbon Cream

Bespoke Bourbon Cream by Black Button Distilling, United States is similar in concept to that of an Irish Cream but has a more complex flavor profile. The bourbon base creates that rich feel with sweet vanilla and a smooth caramel taste. Whiskey and cream naturally go so well together and this delicious spirit combines our hand-finished Bourbon and local farm-fresh New York State cream for a drink that delights. 

The drink possibilities with Bespoke Bourbon Cream are endless. You can stay classic with a Black Button Russian, or step outside of the box with a 585 or Maple Bacon Delight. Bespoke Bourbon Cream is a great starter to the day in a cup of coffee and a perfect nightcap in a root beer float for dessert.

Few know that there are more than 300 varieties of peaches still grown in the US. With 17% ABV, the white peach creates a classic bellini but allows you to be as creative as you want to be with all kinds of spirits and cocktails.
