Quick Tips For A Friendsgiving To Remember

 
Friendsgiving is meant to be a no-stress celebration of the season with your chosen family. It’s also the perfect time to express gratitude for your friends. While it’s usually held on the Wednesday before or after the traditional Thanksgiving holiday, the beauty of this holiday is that you and your friends make the rules! To ensure that your Friendsgiving celebration is fun and relaxing, we put together these quick tips for a party you and your crew will never forget. 
 
Have Guests Bring a Dish & a Drink to Share
Want a stress-free Friendsgiving? Have guests bring a dish and a beverage of their choice to share. You’re sure to have a great variety of food and drink choices by making it a potluck, and everyone contributes! You can even make a Facebook event page to send out Friendsgiving invites. On the page, you can delegate what sides are needed — that way you don’t end up with 4 of the same dish. If you need beverage choice inspo: Nebbiolo + turkey are a match made in heaven, while Petit Verdot goes well with ground beef burgers if you plan to keep your Friendsgiving simple.

Set the Mood With a Gratitude Playlist

Nothing sets the mood for an event better than the jams. Reflect the vibe you want your Friendsgiving to have with the playlist you choose. You could opt for some relaxing folk music or crank up the 90’s hip hop. Create your own playlist and include songs that you and your friends enjoy. You can also opt for a pre-made playlist, like this “Thanksgiving Dinner Playlist” on Spotify or this “Friendsgiving Feels” playlist on Apple Music. 
 
Offer a Pie Bar & Turn it Into a Bake-Off
Everyone knows that fall is basically pie season. Ask a couple of your guests to bring in their favorite Thanksgiving pie and set out a variety of toppings to go with each one. You can even turn it into a bake-off where everyone votes on the best one! The hazelnut and caramel flavors in our 2016 Alliance pair wonderfully with pecan pie. 
 
 
Craft a Signature Friendsgiving Drink
Create a signature Friendsgiving cocktail that you and your friends can enjoy year after year. Go for a recipe that features cinnamon for a fall-themed kick. You can also make a wine-based cocktail and name it after an inside joke instead. For example, here’s one of our wine-based cocktail recipes called “Riddle Me This,” which is named after our Head Winemaker and Owner. 
Riddle Me This
2.5 oz El Cabron + 2 dashes bitters + 3 cherries + 1 orange slice + 1 oz simple syrup
Muddle cherries and orange. Add 2 dashes of bitters. Mix simple syrup with a spoon. Add El Cabron Viejo. Top with ice and garnish with a fresh orange!
