Thanksgiving is a time for family and traditions. Some of us play football with our buddies, some of us watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, and some of us watch the Detroit Lions lose to whoever they’re playing each year. To each their own.

But with family and tradition comes an astronomical amount of stress. And, as we all know, one of the greatest stress relievers is booze. We aren’t saying to get so drunk you start a fight with your crazy aunt about your rival views on US foreign policy. We’re just saying that a cocktail or two can help ease the anxiety and grease the social wheels when it comes to small talk with that strange cousin you only see during the holidays who has a veritable menagerie of cats. That’s why we asked some of our favorite bartenders to tell us their favorite cocktails to pair with Thanksgiving food. You can check out all of their answers below.

Richard Hanauer, beverage director of RPM Restaurants in Chicago and Washington, DC

“Martinez, made with Ford’s gin, Cocchi Torino vermouth, and Luxardo Maraschino liqueur (which happens to be on our cocktail menu currently at RPM Steak). It’s a bitter and rich cocktail that’s perfectly balanced and drinks really well with food. Its deep dark colors pair nicely with the spices typical of Thanksgiving and the maraschino (cherry) liqueur complements cranberry flavors.
