Thanksgiving is synonymous apple pie. But why wait until the end of the meal to eat apples? These three tasty mocktails will pair perfectly with every single dish on your table and won’t fill you up or ruin your palate. To enjoy one of these recipes as dessert in place of apple pie, dip the rim of your glass in a shallow layer of agave or honey followed by a dusting of cinnamon and sugar. Cheers!
