17 Thanksgiving Cocktails So Good, They Rival Pumpkin Pie

The turkey's taken care of, the cranberry sauce has set and there are half a dozen pies all boxed up, waiting to be devoured. All that's left are the drinks -- and this year, water's not going to cut it. You'll be needing something strong, because your Uncle Bob's over and before you get the chance to greet him, he'll be rifling through the drawer of your night table.

These 17 cocktails below are prime for Thanksgiving (and will work all season long) because they're filled to the brim with fall flavors. They'll warm you right up, add a decorative cheer to the table and make Uncle Bob (or any half-welcomed guests, for that matter) a bit more tolerable.
