AdobeStock_46952260.jpegLabor 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:

Cabin Fever

Pour Bailey's Irish cream and creme de menthe into a coffee mug, and stir. Add hot chocolate, and top with whipped cream. Sprinkle with chocolate shavings and a maraschino cherry if desired, and serve.
 

Rusty Nail

Pour the Scotch and Drambuie into an old-fashioned glass almost filled with ice cubes. Stir well. Garnish with the lemon twist (optional).
 
  • 2½ oz. Tattersall Aquavit
  • ½ oz. maple syrup
  • ½ oz. water
  • 8 dashes of Peychaud’s Bitters
Combine and serve over ice. Skip the water if you’re shaking it.
 

Classis Screwdriver

  • 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. 

Whiskey Sour

  • 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).

Now, it's time to get your ingredients together. Remember, Haskell's 13 locations are now open seven days a week or you can always order online. Cheers to a safe and enjoyable long weekend!
