Sometimes a warm, sweet (or spicy) drink after dinner is even better than dessert (bonus if it has a little you-know-what
in it). We'll take a good hot chocolate any time, but if you're in the mood for something different—warm apple pie cocktail, anyone?—take a look below. There are even a few that would make great Thanksgiving cocktails
.This roundup from Sunset
really runs the gamut. There are interesting coffee drinks, like the keoke coffee (which has brandy, Kahlua, and creme de cacao, plus whipped cream- wow) and a coffee scented with cardamom
, which would be a lovely thing to serve on Christmas morning.
There's a classic mulled wine and a red wine Thanksgiving cocktail with pear nectar, star anise, and dried hibiscus blossoms. And for the non-drinkers (or kids), there's chai, Moroccan tea, and a couple of cocoas.
