Thanksgiving is a time for family and friends to come together, give thanks and celebrate with good food and drinks.

Instead of the same old Thanksgiving cocktail menu this year, swap these delicious fall-themed drinks:

Apple Cider Mimosa

An apple cider mimosa is just what you need this holiday season. Grab a bottle of bubbly, apple cider, cinnamon and sugar. Create a cinnamon sugar rim around the glass and then add a 50/50 blend of apple cider and Champagne.

Pumpkin Spice Mules

Add some pumpkin spice to your classic mule this holiday season. Grab some ice, pumpkin pie vodka, apple cider, ginger beer and pumpkin spice. Use cinnamon sticks for garnish, and get mixing.

Fill your cup with ice, pour 1.5–2 ounces of vodka, some apple cider to taste, and top it off with ginger beer for bubbles and a kick of spice. Once you’ve made your perfect cocktail, add in the pumpkin spice and cinnamon sticks for a little more flavor and decoration.

Thanksgiving Jungle Juice

This isn’t just any jungle juice you’d find in a fraternity basement; this juice is delicious and perfect for Thanksgiving dinner. You’ll need: two bottles of red wine; 4 cups of ginger ale; 3 cups of cranberry juice; 5 ounces of Fireball; 5 ounces of whisky; 2 cups of frozen cranberries; an orange sliced into rounds; and an apple cut into thin slices. Once you have everything together, mix it all in a punch bowl, give it a stir and enjoy!

Leftover Pecan Pie Bourbon Shake

Keep the Thanksgiving celebrations going by turning leftover pecan pie into a delicious, boozy dessert. You’ll need three scoops of vanilla ice cream, ½ cup of milk, 2 ounces of bourbon and ½ cup of chopped pecan pie. Throw it all in the blender, blend until desired consistency and top it off with crumbled pecan pie.

Embark on Alaskan Adventure Tours from Anchorage

As our four-passenger plane prepared to land on a gravely shoreline in Lake Clark National Park, one of the most remote national parks in the United States, accessible only by plane or boat, my excitement grew. Though the flight was scenic and provided a terrific perspective of the vast expanse of this part of Southcentral Alaska, my fellow passengers and I had one thing on our mind — bears!

Review: Hotel Pennsylvania, New York City

I was staying in New York City with my daughter. We arrived at Penn Station, right across the street from Hotel Pennsylvania, at 9:30 a.m. — way too early to check in. But we had some luggage we didn’t want to carry around with us, so we stopped at the hotel to leave it.

Mingle with the Locals in Colorado Springs’ Revitalized Ivywild.

On a summer stroll around my friend’s Colorado Springs Ivywild neighborhood, a school building was bustling. Odd, at first sight, as it was summer, and school was clearly not in session. But upon further inquiry, I learned the former Ivywild Elementary School, closed in 2009, had been completely reimagined as part of a Colorado Springs Urban Renewal Authority project.
