10 Big-Batch Cocktails to Drink on Thanksgiving

November 25, 2015

The turkey you ordered weeks ago is thawing, you've delegated Thanksgiving side dishes, and your pie crusts are in waiting in the freezer. But you're going to need something to wash it all down with! Enlist one of your guests to pick up ice—and, if you think you'd like something warm, ask someone to bring over their stockpot—and then make one (or two!) of these easily batchable cocktails—and then make this the next day.
