As Thanksgiving day approaches here’s a look at drinks to enjoy at the start of your party and then when you have had too much to eat.

Thanksgiving turkeyThanksgiving is celebrated across the US on Thursday, although many people will be extending their celebrations through to the weekend.

The tradition started to give thanks for good harvests and prayers of thanks and special Thanksgiving ceremonies will take place around the world.

Although the exact year that Thanksgiving started in the US is disputed, what is known is that George Washington first declared it a national holiday in 1789.

Whether you want to have a pumpkin pie Martini before your food, or help your stomach settle with a Hungarian bitters, here is a selection of Thanksgiving drinks for you to enjoy.

    It’s not a martini. Just serving something in a cocktail glass doesn’t make it a martini.
    A martini is either gin or vodka mixed with dry vermouth and orange bitters, stirred with ice, and strained into a a cocktail glass, garnished with a twist of lemon.

    Wow, that was great. I also want those.
