Mixing Up Light, Refreshing Cocktails to Celebrate Labor Day+ Beyond!


Labor Day and the end of summer is fast approaching for most of the nation. (Here in California, it’s back-to-school time but we still have an extended summer to get through with lots of hot weather like we have today).   One of my favorite holidays is Labor Day because it’s a huge celebration that revolves around get-aways, BBQs and parties.   It should be no surprise that I am sharing cocktails for  Labor Day with you. In fact, you should expect to see a slew of cocktails through at least next Saturday or Sunday!

I am sharing some great spirits with recipes that you can test drive in advance of the holiday weekend! Not only does it give you the opportunity to do some spirits shopping in advance of the holiday, but it might just get you to decide to have a BBQ or party!

I love vodka. It makes for nice easy to mix drinks. However, if you want a really good drink, you need a great vodka–like the Nemiroff Vodka I am featuring here.

Nemiroff Vodka
