Self-Serve Cocktail Bar for Thanksgiving, Free Printable Signs Included!

self serve cocktail Thanksgiving bar bourbon free printable recipe signs

If you’re hosting a Thanksgiving party, it can be a challenge to balance cooking times, the arrival of guests, and drinks. That’s why we love the idea of offering a self-serve cocktail bar, complete with a few easy cocktail recipe signs, ice, and liquors so your guests can have fun playing bartender. (Check out the self-serve bar & printable cocktail signs we made for Superbowl). This particular bar set-up idea includes bourbon whiskey and Laird’s Applejack as the base spirits, and a few classic fall flavors.

Fall is full of so many wonderful flavors – apple, maple, pumpkin – our taste buds appreciate a sensory overload of sweetness to measure oneself against the brisk winds. As the temperature drops, gin gets places towards the back of the liquor cabinet and bourbon comes to the front of the lineup.


Everything you need to pull together this self-serve bar. Ingredients & supplies available at Bottles.
