Thirsty Thanksgiving Libations

When you're serving Thanksgiving dinner, it is important to pair certain libations with specific foods. Before your meal, start with a Prosecco or a Rosé. During your main course, if you enjoy red wine a Pinot Noir pairs nicely with turkey. If you prefer a white wine, pair your main course with a light Sauvignon Blanc. It's crisp taste doesn't overwhelm your palette during the main course. For your digestif, finish off with a delicious dessert drink. A Pumpkin-tini is the perfect flavor to compliment a Thanksgiving meal.
