I’m sure it’s awfully tempting to splash a little rum in your egg nog and be done with your holiday cocktail, but with so many creative and mouth-watering holiday inspired drink recipes out there why not shake things up a bit with a new cocktail option? I mean, why would you even consider opting for a bland, spiked egg nog when you can instead whip up Wild Turkey’s so-good-it’ll-make-you-smack-Santa “Smashed Pumpkin” cocktail? And if you happen to prefer your Wild Turkey on the fruitier, more refreshing side then there’s always the Master Sommelier Fred Dexheimer-created “Pass The Turkey” which combines both apple cider and cranberry jelly. Lastly, if you’re hoping to get the party started you can always treat your guests to the celebratory “American Honey Red Santa” which is topped off with champagne. You can find the recipes for both the Wild Turkey and American Honey cocktails below.
