In need of some inspiration for Thanksgiving? Well, you’ve come to the right slideshow.

Ah, Thanksgiving. It’s usually viewed as the ideal holiday to spend time with your family members, catch up with distant relatives you haven’t heard from in a while, and rekindle those old flames with ex flings… or ignite new ones.

However, due to the current circumstances, your annual family feast may not bring the same amount of people it did previously.

Regardless of the situation, chances are, that Turkey is still getting carved, the mashed potatoes will make their presents felt, the pecan pie will be a highlight of pure delight, and grandma’s world-famous mac and cheese is still going to make its way into your mouth with or without her in the same house as you.

While it’s depressing to think about spending the holidays without being able to give the ones you love the hugs and kisses that you used to, all hope for a happy Thanksgiving isn’t lost. Read on to find out how you can make this year’s turkey day feast all the more memorable with some unique ideas from around the web!

The Gobler From New Amsterdam Vodka

While there are plenty of great New Amsterdam vodka products to choose from, it’s the holiday season. What better way to get into the holiday cheer than by trying a cocktail that’s tailor-made for the holidays? Get in the mood the right way, reward yourself for the year you’ve had, and try The Gobler.

Like most of the items on this list, you don’t have to go through the trouble of doing anything too complex. For the most part, all you’ll need is some New Amsterdam brand vodka and hard cider mixed cranberry and orange juice.

After you’ve gotten your ingredients in order, combine and stir everything into a bowl filled with ice cubes and you’ve viola! you’ve just created The Gobler. Just don’t forget to add the bells and whistles like rosemary and pear slices on the side.

Cranberry-Almond Broccoli Salad

A not so talked about, yet highly beloved Thanksgiving dish is broccoli salad. With all the sweets, treats, and meats associated with the holiday, it’s only right that leafy green vegetables like broccoli aren’t forgotten about.

Some prefer casseroles, some like them just the way they are, but this entry is dedicated to all the salad lovers out there.

To make a Cranberry-Almond Broccoli Salad, you’ll need broccoli, mayo, vinegar, honey, salt, pepper, greek yogurt, chopped red onion, almonds, bacon, and cranberries. Keep in mind, it’s a salad, the list of ingredients are to be expected.
