Whether you’re a five-star chef or talented home cook, you might need a little pick-me-up between prepping courses today. We’ve rounded up six Thanksgiving-themed cocktails that will take a bit of stress off of tomorrows festivities.
Mashed sweet potatoes are all the rage this season, and now you can have them in your drink as well! A.Kitchen + Bar mixes sweet potato, mezcal, Ardbeg 10-yr Scotch, soda, nutmeg, and egg white for a unique take on a holiday favorite.
