Spiced Rum and Pear Thanksgiving Cocktail Recipe

Come Party With Me: Bold Flavorful Thanksgiving — Drinks

For the rest of the meal, stock up on sparkling wine, dry rosé, and a light, fruity red like Pinot Noir. Don't forget to set pitchers of water on table as well. Flavor them with orange slices, mint, or cucumber.
