Your family gets Thanksgiving, so what does your second family, your friends get? Our friends are equally as important to our lives, as our family is. They definitely deserve a day marked on the calendar, but since there isn’t a nationally sanctioned day yet, show your gratitude by hosting your own Friendsgiving.  Our top most festive drinks are sure to inspire.
