Thanksgiving is this week and we wanted to kick off our full week of Thanksgiving with our favorite holiday cocktails. But we’ve added a twist…we’ve create or modified our drinks as some of them where inspired by some of our favorite bloggers. So check out our list below and enjoy!

1. The Perez Hilton

We love reading Perez Hilton. He totally has the funniest website around right now. So this drink mixes his signature color:

1 1/2 oz Jim Beam bourbon
3/4 oz Orange Juice
Juice from 1/2 lemon
1 tsp grenadine
One Splash of Hot Sauce

Mix and blend and you’ll be good to go. This is the perfect drink for when you are sitting in a coffee shop on your PC thinking about how to take over the entertainment industry.

2. The Martini Pink

One of my favorite websites is Martini Pink ran by my homegirl Elon. She sent in this drink recipe for you all to enjoy.

2 ounces Cranberry Juice
2 ounces Ketel One Vodka
1 ounce Cointreau
1/2 ounce Lime Juice
Juicy Cherry as Garmish

3. The Kanye West

Kanye has one of the funniest celebrity written blogs on the web. I love it when he writes in ALL CAPES LIKE THIS WHICH IS REALLY ANNOYING! Enjoying this cocktail while listening to 808’s and Heartbreaks.

1 1/2 oz Absolut® vodka
1/2 oz peach schnapps
1/2 oz coconut liqueur
1 1/2 oz cranberry juice
1 1/2 oz pineapple juice

Mix well. Garnish with a slice of orange and a cherry, and serve. It’s very colorful like the color combo’s that Kanye West often puts together.
