Thanksgiving is known for being an eating holiday, but it’s often a drinking holiday, too. And while we love a good cocktail as much as the next, it’s always a good idea to have some mocktail recipes in your back pocket.

These delish holiday mocktails are light and sweet and total crowd-pleasers. They’re the perfect beverage to mix up and serve in a punch bowl alongside pumpkin pie or as a pre-dinner apéritif. Bottom line? You’re gonna want to sip on these tasty mocktails this Thanksgiving.
