You've just had the best vegan Thanksgiving meal of your life. Your stomach is stuffed with cranberry sauce and you're ready to go back for a second helping of apple pie. Your stretchy pants say it's time to stop indulging, but you just don't want to. After all, how often do you get a whole day to eat, drink, and be merry? Like, green bean casseroles just don't taste this good any other time of the year besides on turkey day.
Sure, a classic holiday cocktail, a hot toddy, pear fizz, or a glass of sangria screams Thanksgiving drinks (!!!), but sometimes you want all of the fun and none of the alcohol (ahem, after Thanksgiving hangover? No thanks). So we put together the ultimate list of Thanksgiving holiday drinks that are full of fall flavors, but are a lil' more comforting and just as celebratory!
