From classic mulled wine to something a little more spirited, there's no better complement to your holiday feast than a spiced drink.

So while you've got your saucepans at the ready and the spices out of the cupboard, don't forget to brew up one of these five scrumptious spiced libations -- you'll be thankful you did. Happy Thanksgiving!
