A Thanksgiving Menu is a customized list of dishes and drinks available to the party guests at a private event or offered at a restaurant or cafe. There are different reasons to create a menu for Thanksgiving - you may write and design a festive menu for a restaurant that serves traditional holiday dishes for a couple of weeks, inform the attendees of the celebration you are organizing about the food and drinks you will offer them, or ask the guests to share their Thanksgiving Menu ideas with you so that you plan a party everyone enjoys.

A traditional Thanksgiving Menu will list the dishes based on recipes recognizable by every individual that has ever attended a Thanksgiving dinner - roasted turkey, baked or glazed ham, mashed potatoes, gravy, yams, cranberry sauce, pecan pie, and pumpkin pie. There are also numerous beverages and cocktails popular during the holiday season - mulled wine, punch, eggnog, martini, and mimosa. Kids and adults that do not drink alcohol will certainly enjoy drinks made out of apples, pears, and cranberries.
Nevertheless, you are not obliged to comply with the tradition - whether you want to add a twist to the menu your family and friends usually plan or prepare a brand new menu launching new customs for your inner circle, opt for a casual Thanksgiving Menu. For example, there may be vegetarians and vegans present at your celebration - consult with them while you are drafting the menu to find out if meatless dishes like bean casserole, roasted brussels sprouts and butternut squash, or corn pudding are the right choice for your party. If you are asking the guests for their input or planning a potluck, you can break with Thanksgiving tradition entirely and eat food unconventional for this holiday but very much typical for you and your loved ones whether it is national cuisine you are familiar with or dishes based on a collection of recipes your family cherishes for years.
