What Are You Drinking With Your Thanksgiving Meal?

PartySugar and I have already planned our Thanksgiving menus, and now we're just eagerly awaiting the big day. To distract our giddy selves, we had a discussion about what we're serving to drink at Thanksgiving dinner. She'll be serving a citrus spritzer, Champagne, and Beaujolais, while DearSugar will be drinking red, white, and bubbly. As for me, I haven't decided yet — I'll serve either a Gewurtztraminer or a Pinot Noir.

What will you and your guests be drinking? Once you've made your selection below, tell me in the comments exactly what you'll be pouring!

I was with the family, so I had only one beer (which I didn't finish anyway) and spent the rest of the afternoon drinking water.

I don't like wine with my meals. I have it afterwards. With my meal, I will have iced tea (Texan, what can I say?) or water.

It's not that I don't like or can't afford bubbly, it's that I don't think it's right for Thanksgiving. Me? Beer.

I'm with fam and my boy's are big on drinking. We'll have Pinot Noir at my parents' and I'll bring a bottle of champagne to his grandparents', in case i don't like what they're drinking :) the boy doesn't drink, though, so I'll try not to lush out too much.

I'll probably take a Riesling or Pinot Noir to my parents. We usually don't drink for Thanksgiving dinner, but now since my sister is 'legal' I thought I'd take a bottle.

Chardonnay for Apps and then Pinot Noir with the Turkey and Zinfindel with the Prime Rib. Can't wait!!

As for us, the question is what WON'T we drink?? :) During Thanksgiving, the spirits flow freely around here. Most likely, we'll have hot mulled cider with brandy, ice wine, Merlot, pomegranate and vodka cocktail, and whatever alcohol my Mom saved for Thanksgiving. I think there's alcohol in our recipes, too, and we would take a swig of that to make sure it's good. LOL

As the hostess this year, I have several different likes to please. So, like the meal, there will be something for martini's (made with real apple juice NOT Pucker, yuck!), Riesling, Pinot Noir, and juice or flavored sparkling water (for those who don't drink). We're saving the bubbly for my sister's birthday on Saturday! HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!

Hehe, several of the above. My parents friends usually make sangria, and I'll probably have some wine or a beer. Perhaps bubbly if there is some.

I'll be drinking water this Thanksgiving, since my in-laws don't drink...YAY!! ;)

if i were having the meal at my own home, i would assume that we would have red since that's our drink of choice for dinner, however my fiance and i are at HIS parent's house and it's not likely that wine will be on the menu. i'm guessing it's going to be tea or water.

Freixenet is a fabulously affordable bubbly, it's in a black bottle and sells for about 10 dollars a bottle. It's really yummy!

Party, I am totally with you. Gerwurtz is usually my Thanksgiving wine of choice, but as one of my guests only drinks red wine, we are having Pinot Noir and Beaujolais!

Pinot Noir and Reisling, and with appetizers, that cocktail that was posted here a week or so ago, with cranberry juice cocktail juice (light), some sugar and lime juice, champagne and triple sec (I was going to get Grand Marniere (sp?) but it was $37.00!) My brothers will probably have beer.
