Thanksgiving Cocktails [Bitter Clinger]

cocktail tday1.jpg

If you want to create cocktails and think like a bartender, you have a couple of options. One is to become deeply knowledgeable in all the finest products available, experiment and find what optimizes existing cocktails. The masters do this, guys like Chris McMillan, Dale DeGroff, and David Wondrich. They have nuance and refinement. They stand on the shoulders of the great bartenders of yore, the Founding Fathers of bartending, like Jerry Thomas and Harry Craddock. These guys are the Rembrants of the industry.

But then you have bartenders like me. I’m the Dogs Playing Poker on crushed velvet of the industry. So when I create cocktails, sometimes they have elements of skill to them, but I mainly want them to be fun and tasty, even if they are not always exclusive and refined.

One way I like to create new cocktails is to think of food or flavors that are reminiscent of a particular theme I’m developing drinks for and see if I might be able to deliver those flavors in cocktail format.

For Thanksgiving cocktails, there are plenty of iconic dishes to be sure. But I’ve no desire to create anything to do with pumpkin pie or cranberry sauce. They are both done to death and there are great drinks out there that deliver on those flavors. Well, at least cranberry, anyway. Pumpkin spice can DIAF.

Turkey and dressing seems a bit too savory. I suppose a cocktail onion and pickled green bean garnish might make a green bean casserole martini, but that seems rather unpleasant as well. Mashed potato and gravy daiquiris, umm no. But pecan pie and sweet potato casserole…hmm. I can work with that!

If you are into simplicity, the may be for you, no muss/no fuss. Or if you are a bit more adventurous and don’t mind doing a little prep work, the Yam, What I Yam is a fun little cocktail that might give your Thanksgiving guests the impression you know a thing or two. If you make these drinks, I highly encourage you to eat the garnishes as you sip on the drinks, they really add something to the flavor and aren’t just for show.

If these look inviting, give them a try. But whatever you do and whatever you drink, have a great Thanksgiving!

Cheers!

Pecanhattan


  • 1.5 oz Rye Whiskey (I used Rittenhouse)
  • 1.0 oz Select Club Pecan Praline Whisky
  • .75 oz Carpano Antica Formula Vermouth
  • 3 dashes Fee Brothers Black Walnut Bitters

Stir with ice for 30 seconds and serve up with a cocktail cherry and candied pecans.

Yam, What I Yam


  • 2.0 oz. Marshmallow Vodka*
  • 1.5 oz. Sweet Potato Simple Syrup**
  • 1.5 oz. Half and Half


Shake vigorously with ice for 10-15 seconds, strain fresh over ice and garnish with a dusting of freshly grated nutmeg and some charred mini-marshmallows.


* To make marshmallow vodka, simply put mini marshmallows in a jar and cover with vodka and allow to sit overnight, shaking occasionally. Make as much or as little as you like. Strain the finished vodka and store for use.

** To make sweet potato simple syrup, bake a sweet potato at 400 degrees until it is soft. Scoop the pulp out of half of it, combine with 1 cup of water and a 1/2 cup of light brown sugar and simmer on low heat for 30 minutes. Puree the mixture until smooth and strain through cheesecloth.

12 There's such a thing as Pecan Praline Whisky? Why did I never hear of this?

These drinks sound like great fun, Bitter Clinger! You're very imaginative. I put a little vodka in a lot of cranberry juice, squeeze in a wedge of lime and call it my Thanksgiving drink.

55 you guys are are doing yeoman's work. So much respect for pitching in. It is one thing to talk about it, but another to do it

I can't think of many Thanksgiving cocktails. I do like the Cape Codder, which is based on cranberry juice. It is a funny drink that I am sure a bartender could expound upon. Even though I know too much about booze, I am no bartender. The Cape Codder is vodka, cranberry juice,and fresh lime. A cool drink and certainly in the Turkey Day realm. The funnys thing is, if you just add a bid of triple sec, and put it in a martini glass, you have the Cosmopolitan of Sex and the City fame.

Again,my wine picks for T Day are Pinot Noir, Bordeaux, and after that,whatever the Heck you want.

67 I have never seen black walnut bitters. Then again, I've never looked for black walnut bitters. I used to really, really like Manhattans back in the 90's, that was my go-to after work sedative.

One bourbon based drink that sounds awful but is really tasty is something I had at the Majestic Cafe in old town Alexandria. I haven't been in 13 or so years, but they had an awesome menu and mixed prohibition era type cocktails and had mostly 90-100 year old distillery hooch. The "Clinton" is really simple, IIRC it's 2oz bourbon, 1oz. lemon juice (should be a very lemony bitter one like a Eureka, not Meyer) and 1oz. dark maple syrup. Somehow, the lemon and maple cancel each other out, and the bourbon still stands out quite well. Dangerous with a capital D.

I somewhat recalled either a video or amazon reviews that you'll have explosive diarrhea eating too many of those, and it just seemed wrong for the purpose anyway. They did have gummi worms, but that didn't seem right either. So, I'll keep looking.

I think they've flavored vodka with everything at this point. This could be a good one - not sure what I'd mix with. I'm not a fan of sweet booze most of the time, but done right that might be nice.

One of my favorite things to do when they're available, the champagne mangoes make insanely great infused vodka. They're not too sweet, and lend it a nice golden color that's very, very drinkable. Now that I've discovered 5 Column, that'd be my choice - the cleanest vodka I've ever tasted. I've used regular mangoes, but they're sweeter, require straining and you've got to be careful the mangoes don't ferment themselves, giving the vodka a really nasty flavor. They don't seem quite as stable as the little champagne ones.

The vodka will have taken on a faint pink color and taste a bit like watermelon.
The watermelon should be given to people who drink; but, do not expect to get fall down drunk eating watermelon.

I read a book by USSR soldier and later spy and defector Viktor Suvarov about his time in the army, and he described a promotion ceremony where they dropped his new star in a water glass of vodka filled to the very top, ice cold and he drained it in one go, catching the star in the lips, which then went on the shoulder tab. Repeat for the other tab.

THEN the drinking party started.

Make sure the shaken drink is very cold and serve in a martini glass.

224 The closest I get to a cocktail is vodka with Sanpellegrino sparkling soda - orange or lemon - although their orange with prickly pear is interesting.

Otherwise, bourbon & ice. As I've mentioned before, when this cheapskate was getting a new refrigerator I suddenly decided to spend an extra grand for a nice one that just happens to make craft ice. Downside, it takes a long time, but I suppose that has to do with why it's so clear. Perfect (well almost) spheres to melt in your Rye.

Hmm, I do have an unopened bottle of Basil Hayden - I can hear it scratching at the cabinet door...

I ordered a pizza, was hit with a tremendous case of the lazies. Have a pork chop all marinated and ready to smoke, but that's so many steps outside, and back in... tantamount to exercise.

Back when I had my office in Palo Alto, the market around the corner (Molly Stones) had this hippy that made carrot juice (as well as orange/grapefruit/lemonade IIRC). I was honestly addicted to that stuff. It was SO sweet and thick and rich - like a vegetable milk shake. Then they had the whole people getting poisoned by juice thing (the Mexicans in Watsonville couldn't make it to the space shuttle) and started cooking everything, and they stopped carrying that juice. Naked and Odwalla couldn't touch it. If I was ever tempted to get a juicer... Juice has never been the same.

But carrot juice as a mixer - I'm just not seeing it.

Well there actually is already a shot called a carrot cake. Its Goldschlager, Baile's Kahlua and Butterscotch Schnapps in equal parts.

But if I was attempting one with actual carrot juice...hmm...it'd probably be all about proportions.

Maybe make a simple syrup with clove, cinnamon and nutmeg. Carrot juice, syrup, maybe a vanilla vodka and spiced rum in equal parts. I dunno, I'd have to play with it.

When my wife was growing for the farmer's market (yes, we had a county approved garden) she grew blue lakes and would let some get to exactly the length of a ball jar. She'd make "dilly beans" specifically for bloody marys. That, celery and a strip of thick-cut crispy applewood bacon and the hangovers weren't so bad.

253 I would like to know the magic formula for the long island ice tea. I have ones that hit you like a pan galactic gargle blaster, and others you need to drink 3 before you even have a hint you're drinking something. The shit ones seem to be all over the map, but the places that make the great ones all seem to taste the same and have the same punch. THATS the formula I want.
Posted by: Berserker-Dragonheads Division at November 23, 2021 08:40 PM (VwHCD)

In college the formula was equal parts rum, whiskey, vodka, gin (?) then a little coke to make it brown.

254 I actually have a cocktail to offer. And it actually doesn't have bourbon!

Sweet Tart (tastes like the candy)
1 part Raspberry liqueur (pucker Raspberry schnapps works well)
1 part melon liqueur
1 part triple sec
Pour all of those into a pint sized glass filled with ice. Add OJ to fill. Stir.

Sometimes I add a little cranberry juice and/or club soda. Whatever works for you!

255 Chivas or any scotch, actually, on the rocks. a fireplace to drink it in front of is a must have too.

Posted by: irongrampa at November 23, 2021 08:39 PM (KATBx)

A friend of mine gave me a box of unopened booze left over from a party, there is a bottle of chivas in there, and there is a fireplace in the new house I haven't used yet. I may have to try your recipe. lol

256 There is a famous restaurant in New Orleans called Arnaud's. They fairly recently opened a bar called the "French 75 Bar". Suspect the know how to make them. Never been there as I don't drink and drive.

257 A guy earlier today told me he thought Glenfiddich was too peaty. I didn't have the heart to tell him it had no peat whatsover. JWB has way more peat than Glenfiddich. Some vs none at all is more.

Be wary of discount Long island Teas. they are usually made with a LIT blend from Barton's. You get an ounce and a half of cheap LIT pre-blended spirit.

You probably prefer the hand poured, which is vodka, rum, gin, silver tequila (debatable among bartenders), and triple sec. .5 oz of each. Then generally an ounce or so of sour mix, shake and top with coke.

a splash of triple sec and agreed. An awful cocktail by taste.But if you want to get blatzed, it is easy..Maybe throw in some lemon.

I would suggest boiling the shrimp, making a remoulade sauce, dip the shrimp in the sauce, eat it, and take a sip of you favorite beer.

yeah no doubt, I did see them pouring 4 bottles, 2 in each hand, into the glass in this one place, and they were killer. The place limited you to 2, no more, and for good reason, lol. I'm guessing that would be white rum? I see that mentioned.

Posted by: Berserker-Dragonheads Division at November 23, 2021 08:56 PM (VwHCD)

270 I'm guessing that would be white rum?

Yes, we call it the white trash drink, because it generally has all the white liquors in it.

Some people debate whether the inclusion of tequila is proper. But the original, created Robert "Rosebud" Butt, had it in there, so thats the classic.

271 261 Can anyone recommend cocktails that involve shrimp?

We used to make a Bloody Caesar with two boiled shrimp and an Old Bay and salt rim as the garnish.

Its similar to a Bloody Mary, only made with clamato juice instead of tomato juice. If you can find Walter brand Caesar mix, they make a fine product. I think during the holidays they make one with lobster instead of clam juice. Tasty!

272 My manhattan: .75 oz Carpano Classico vermouth (or .5 oz Antica) 2 oz Jim Beam, 2.372 zotz Peychauds bitters, 1/2 tsp maple syrup. Real maple stuff only, stirred only, steel vacuum thermal cup to keep it cold.

LPT; drink in moderation to avoid excessive chest hair and testicular gigantism.

273 God, if I drank any of those, I would be shaking vigorously. By the way, are those green olives under whipped cream in that first image? Looks like it.
