Happy Labor Day! Great Cocktails that “Work” for Labor Day + Fall Days!

Stella Artois’ Cidre cocktails make for an interesting spin on Labor Day and while Southern California is dealing with high temperatures, there are Cidre recipes that are a perfect fit for the sizzling temperatures and the humidity: Stella Artois Cidre Margarita and the Stella Artois Cidre Paloma.  Plus I tossed in a more autumnal recipe from  Stella Artois– for Sangria!

Stella Artois Cidre is a refreshing, perfectly balanced cider – not too sweet, not too dry, and our new cocktails are the perfect drinks to complement warm weather, Mexican-inspired bites or late summer soirees.

Mix thoroughly and allow to macerate for 30-45 minutes.
To finish the punch, add cold Stella Artois Cidre, ice and mint.
Serve immediately.
