Labor Day Weekend signals the seasonal change from summer to, well... not summer. Depending on the mood of Mother Nature, the weekend can be our last hurray of G & Ts or our first big dip into our hearty porters and ales.
So whether you're thinking about autumnal ales, warming whiskeys, or looking for one last fun cocktail to shake, we have a few different ideas on what to stock for your weekend away as we celebrate America's labor movement and the contribution workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.
5 Cocktail Recipes Perfect for Labor Day Weekend:
- 2½ oz. Tattersall Aquavit
- ½ oz. maple syrup
- ½ oz. water
- 8 dashes of Peychaud’s Bitters
- 1½ oz. vodka
- Orange juice
- Orange slice for decoration
Mix the ingredients and strain into an old-fashioned or Collins glass with ice cubes. Decorate the cocktail with a slice of orange.
- 2 oz. bourbon
- 2/3 oz. lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon superfine sugar
Shake the bourbon, juice, and sugar well with cracked ice, then strain into a chilled cocktail glass (unless you happen to have a Sour glass).
