If you’re hosting Thanksgiving at your home this year, you’ll need to start planning early. Roasted turkey is considered a staple meal for Thanksgiving, but no Thanksgiving dinner is complete without some mouthwatering drinks.
We’ve gathered a list of 4 amazing drink recipes using Agavales Tequila that pair perfectly with a classic holiday meal. So, get that turkey in the oven and make your Thanksgiving dinner even more memorable with these drinks.

Recipe #1: Cinnamon-Orange Margarita

A Thanksgiving margarita made with Agavales Tequila is a delight for the taste buds. Let’s be honest, the blatant citrussy flavor that comes with margaritas says summer more than Thanksgiving.
That’s why this margarita puts the lime juice on the backburner while more wintery flavors stand front and center. More specifically, apple, pear, cinnamon, and orange are what make this margarita perfect for November. Here is our take on a unique Agavales Thanksgiving margarita.
For this drink, you will need:
  • Lime
  • Ice
  • 2 oz apple cider
  • Cinnamon sticks
  • 1 oz orange liqueur
  • 1½ oz Agavales Añejo
  • Salt
  • 2 oz pear juice
  • Cocktail shaker
First, pour the salt on a plate and run a lime wedge along the rim of your cocktail glass. Turn the glass upside down and press the salt onto the rim. Put some ice into the glass and squeeze in the remaining lime juice.
Fill the cocktail shaker with ice and combine all the liquid ingredients inside. Shake for 15 seconds. Pour your margarita into the glass and use a cinnamon stick and orange slice for garnish.

Recipe #2: Cranberry Margarita

If you’re one that prefers sour over sweet, this cranberry margarita will suit your taste buds perfectly. A forkful of turkey and stuffing simply isn’t complete without a dollop of cranberry sauce – this drink takes that theory and runs with it. Its mixture of lime and cranberry make this a standout cocktail for any Thanksgiving dinner.
For this drink, you will need:
  • ¾ cup Agavales Tequila
  • ¾ cup fresh lime juice
  • 1½ cup cranberry juice
  • ½ cup orange liqueur
Mix all ingredients in a cocktail shaker and serve in salt-rimmed glasses. You can garnish with a bit of lime and a few cranberries.

Recipe #3: Apple Cider Margarita

There’s no better time of year than the fall to put apples to use and this margarita is the perfect way to do it. Not only does this cocktail feature the bubbly sweetness of delicious apple cider, it also adds in a splash of pumpkin. Can you get more autumnal than an apple-pumpkin cocktail? I don’t think so.
For this drink, you will need:
  • 1½ oz Agavales Tequila
  • 4 oz apple cider
  • 1 oz pumpkin liqueur
Mix all ingredients in a cocktail shaker and serve in salt-rimmed glasses. Garnish with a cinnamon stick, apple slices or a lime wedge.

If you want this Thanksgiving to be your time to shine, let this cocktail be your showstopper. Tequila sunrises are known for their impressive appearance, and what better way to impress your guests than with delicious cocktails?
For this drink, you will need:
