Love celebrating holidays — even if they hail from the other side of the world? Or are you a homesick North American looking for something to remind you of home? Then no doubt you're looking forward to US holiday Thanksgiving, which falls on November 25. Lucky for you, Cheers! Spirits From the USA is partnering with leading venues across the nation, helping us Aussies celebrate the day.

This week until Sunday, 28 November, select bars in Melbourne will be turning happy hour into 'thanksgiving hour' by offering a range of thanksgiving-themed cocktails for you to cheers over.

The brand has collaborated with innovative Australian bartenders to create an exciting cocktail list that showcases classic American spirits such as Angel's Envy Bourbon, Westward Whiskey and Woodford Reserve.. Head on down to Fitzroy's The Catfish for a Cranbourbon Catfizz made with Angel's Envy bourbon, cranberry, lemon and soda. Or, sip a Thanksgiving pie-inspired cocktail, dubbed Just a Slice, created by the bartenders at CBD bar 1806.

There are eight more participating venues, including The Elysian Whisky Bar, The Everleigh, Heartbreaker, Ends and Means, Bar Ampere, Beneath Driver Lane, Whisky and Alement, and Que Club. Yep, there's a total of ten much-loved Melbourne bars partaking in the festive day, so you have little excuse to miss it. So, head on down, grab yourself a festive cocktail and cheers to being able to celebrate IRL with mates again.

Beneath Driver Lane
