Top Bourbon Recommendations For Thanksgiving
It’s time to get down with Turkey. Wild Turkey, that is. Both of these picks pair well with football, parades, and dog shows. Cornhole, pumpkin pie, stuffing–the works. Whatever your tradition, these will fall in line.
Wild Turkey 101 | $17.99
Quick notes: Honey sweetness with pepper and buttered toast.
Swear: we eat it with our chocolate Halloween candy. No shame in busting out leftovers on Turkey Day. Bring the tiny sweets and the big bourbon treats.
Wild Turkey Rye 101 | $35.99
Quick notes: Smooth caramel with spiced fruit and wood.
Outstanding and can hold its own against all the heavy veggies, sauces, and meats of Thanksgiving.
Top Bourbon Recommendations for Holiday Parties
These are great around the holiday dinner table and for ringing in the New Year! They’re guaranteed to make any Christmas gift you open ten times better than it really is. That’s right. They’re that good.
Eagle Rare 10 Year | $34.99
Quick notes: Toasted bread and nuts with a little sweet fruit.
Fantastic with a bowl of pistachios! (We’re just saying.)
Four Roses Single Barrel | $39.99
Quick notes: Spiced fruits with both chocolate and vanilla.
It’s fabulous with steak, scallops, barbeque, roasted corn, and asparagus. And just anytime, to be honest.

Wild Turkey’s Boulevardier
Get the full recipe here. But it’s simple. If your guests or hosts don’t want to sip their 101 neat, with a splash of water, or on the rocks… Then serve them up this delicious drink. You only need a couple of things. Your 101, sweet vermouth, and Campari.
Southern Living’s Spiced Orange Bourbon Punch
Sometimes, the party isn’t really a party without spiked punch. It’s an age-old truth, and we’re sticking to it. We’re offering up this light and refreshing holiday watering hole. So many winter cocktails can be creamy, cloyingly sweet, and too heavy. This one gives you a boost on the dance floor.
All you need is the recipe here. It’s a lot of spices, fresh oranges, orange juice, ginger beer, carbonated water, and bourbon. Need we say more?
