Thanksgiving is fast approaching and shoppers everywhere are scouring their local grocers to find the perfect ham, turkey and fixings.

However, Thanksgiving isn’t just about great food, it’s also about great cocktails.

Leading up to Thanksgiving, Examiner will feature cocktail selections from all across the country to turn your holiday festivities into a day to remember for years and years to come. And nothing is better than having the best Thanksgiving dinner at your house this year, especially if your family does the rotation thing.
