Give Thanks and Raise Your Glass this #Thanksgiving! #recipes


Thanksgiving is right around the corner which means family, friends and tons of delicious food ~ and cocktails, of course! Why not spend the day relaxing and enjoying yourself with those who are closest to you and what better way to do that than with a few yummy drinks?


Whether you're spending Thanksgiving with family, or hosting your own "Friends-giving", no meal is complete without the perfect cocktail. Let Skinnygirl Cocktails and Sauza Tequila help you toast to everything you're thankful for with festive Thanksgiving inspired cocktails below!

Sauza Pumpkin Pie-tini
  • 1 1/2 parts Sauza Blue Reposado 100% Agave Tequila
  • 3 parts cream
  • 1/2 part Torani Pumpkin Spice Syrup
  • 1 part simple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • Whipped Cream and cinnamon for garnish (optional)
Preparation: Shake all ingredients vigorously with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Top with whipped cream and cinnamon (optional). Enjoy!

Cranberry Orange Margarita
  • 1 1/2 parts Sauza Blue Silver 100% Agave Tequila
  • 1/2 part DeKuyper Triple Sec
  • 4 parts cranberry juice
  • 2 parts orange juice
  • 2 oranges
  • 1/2 cup cranberries, frozen
  • 2 tbsp sugar
Preparation: First make your garnishes, freeze 1/3 cup of cranberries. Using a channel knife cut a long spiral from an orange (see if you can make it all the way in one try!) and cut into 6 inch pieces. Twist the peels around your bar spoon and reserve for garnish. Zest the other orange with a spice grater to remove just the peel and none of the pith and combine with sugar. Cut the zested orange into wedges. Rub a wedge of orange around half the rim of your glasses. Roll the glasses through the sugared orange zest. In a shaker, combine the rest of the sugar and orange zest mixture with the cranberry juice, orange juuice, Sauza Blue Silver, orange liqueur, and the juice from the orange. Twist the orange peel over the drink and place on the prepared glass. Top with frozen cranberries and serve your cocktail. Salud!
