The best cocktail for Thanksgiving is the Apple Toddy. This drink is great because it's festive and simple to make and, best of all, delicious! The best part about this drink is that you can use any kind of alcohol you want, so feel free to substitute it with your favorite type.
Pour the apple cider into a pot and add orange halves, cinnamon sticks, and cloves. Heat until steaming but not boiling.
Divide into two mugs or heat-resistant glasses. Stir in brandy to taste for each mug. Top with a spoonful of whipped cream (optional).
You can add whipped cream on top for extra creamy goodness in your drink.
