Thanksgiving is a time to eat, drink and be thankful (emphasis on the drink). Our team has created this guide to ensure your libations match up to the many flavors of your Turkey Day feast. Enjoy!
This is how we roll! If your Thanksgiving feast doesn’t start off with a few crispy, buttery dinner rolls, you’re missing out big time.
We recommend pairing this classic side with a light, refreshing glass of bubbly. The Nicolas Feuillatte Exclusive Brut Champagne and the Pierre Sparr Cremant d’Alsace Brut Reserve are both bottles worthy of holiday celebrations.
We’ll worry about the Christmas tree later… Right now, it’s all about the poul-tree! Your Thanksgiving feast wouldn’t be complete without turkey and wine, and things can get a little tricky when it comes to deciding on the perfect pairing for the tried-and-true combo. We’re here to help!
If you’re in the mood for white, we recommend a Riesling like the Seehof Elektrisch Riesling Kabinett or the Trimbach Riesling. If red is more your style, we recommend a lighter-bodied, higher-acid wine like a Pinot Noir or Red Zinfandel that is full-bodied and fruity.
The gravy boat has arrived! We’ve got a few excellent pairing options for this Turkey Day delight.
If you’re looking to get into the Thanksgiving spirits this year, a smoky Mezcal like Bañuelos or an Islay Scotch like Ardbeg are both great options. If beer is more your style, a dry, roasty Stout like the Guinness Extra Stout will certainly do the trick.
Some people love it, others don’t see the point, but cranberry sauce always finds a way to end up on the table.
We recommend pairing its fruity flavors with a fruited sour like Odell’s Sippin’ Pretty. Another complimentary option would be a prosecco like Anno Domini or Cavit Lunetta. No matter which option you choose, they’ll both have you saying, “Yes we cran!”
It just doesn’t get any butter than this! We’re counting down the days until we get to dive into this universally-loved Thanksgiving dish.
The perfect counterpart for this creamy, buttery goodness would be a glass of Moët & Chandon Impérial Brut Champagne. If you’re interested in doubling down on the potato, we recommend a potato vodka like Woody Creek or Monopolowa.
Think Thanksgiving dinner is over? You ain’t seen stuffin’ yet. We recommend pairing your mother’s famous stuffing with Suigei Tokubetsu Junmai Drunken Whale Sake.
Although this might seem like an unlikely duo, our team is confident that this pairing will leave you feeling pleasantly surprised.
No matter how you pronounce the word ‘pecan’, this quintessential Thanksgiving dessert is always a sweet and nutty treat. It needs a counterpart that can keep up with its richness, and that’s where Bourbon comes in.
Remember: Thanksgiving is a time to count your blessings, not your calories. Needless to say, we’re excited to break out the booze and indulge on these pairings one course at a time!
