What's the only way a lot of us can cope with the family on Thanksgiving? Booze. Lots of booze.

If you are reading this, then you must be a drinker, and your family drives you nuts.

Here is a list of five rockin' Thanksgiving cocktails to get you through the day...or weekend...or the entire holiday season. I've tried to feature something for everyone's favorite pick of poison.

  1. Bourbon Negroni: It starts with infusing bourbon with figs, pears and vanilla bean for two weeks--so autumn in a cocktail glass! My personal favorite of these five. I like bourbon.
  2. Pumpkin Pie Martini: The only thing better than a pumpkin spice latte is pumpkin spice liqueur shaken up with half & half and served with a graham cracker crumb rim.
  3. English Harvest: Made with apple juice, apple brandy and gin, it's like a boozy version of apple cider.
  4. Hard Cider Sangria: Just when you thought you'd tried every possible version of sangria, here's one that showcases hard cider and fall apples--yummmm!
  5. Ginger's Long Island: Featuring mezcal, ginger liqueur and cardamom pods, this cocktail is a great way to spice up your drinking day.
