Well it sure is that time with Thanksgiving around the corner and not so much with the New Year soon afterwards.

We all have different taste buds when it comes down on what is best to serve after a Turkey feast.

Different regions of the country will have limited choices due to what distributor is in the local.

I'm on the west coast so will offer my suggestion here altho there will be a difference in opinions.

I was in the Grocery/Liquor trade for 23 yrs and have seen my share of domestic Labels along with many imported items.

I will refer here to my choice of two specific domestic items that are reasonable in price and the taste they have will be remembered.

Brandy as some will know comes in many flavors and brands especially a common label like Hiram Walker which advertises a lot thus the recognition.

Personally for the price difference (slight) I lean towards De Kypper (Blackberry flavor). It has a nice color....bouquet and smooth taste in the pallet. This is a drink (low alcohol) that most can drink after a meal.

On the higher end I like Drambue (with little ice). This also is a very nice smooth tasting drink that many adults will enjoy after a tasty meal.

I did not consider Whiskey, Rum, Scotch etc as a after Thanksgiving meal drink of choice as they have their own times to be consumed.

There will be a few labels of choice around the country so I'm all ears as will be others here on C-D.

Lets have at it and wish everyone enjoys the coming holidays.

We usually have a Riesling with dinner. If I serve anything with liquor, it's eggnog with Southern Comfort. I might make a cake with brandy in it.

Bluegrass Sundown is my new favorite after dinner drink. It is a combination of coffee and Town Branch bourbon. You mix the liqueur with almost boiling water and float heavy cream on top. Wonderful cold weather drink.

Chilled Limoncello is a nice after-dinner liqueur. It's light and has a settling effect for the stomach. Caravella has a nice one that is widely available and by the the way their Orangecello is quite nice as well but more difficult to find. http://www.caravellaus.com/caravella.html

Another overlooked option is dessert wines. One of my faves is Quady's Orange Essensia. Quady Winery :: Essensia

Another option is making your own Limoncello. Not difficult and my homemade hooch has gotten favorable reviews when compared to commercially available varieties.

For the fall, there's nothing better than Schlafly Pumpkin Ale. It's one of the best Pumpkin beers out there.

Irish coffee and pumpkin ale sound good to me around this time of year.

Mad Elf from Troegs is a great beer to serve with any holiday meal. However be careful at 11% it will kick your a$$ if your not careful.

Sierra Nevada Celebration ale should be out very soon, if it isn't already in some areas.
I've been drinking it for nearly twenty years. When I see it on the shelves I know the holidays are here again.
