13 Labor Day Cocktails to Get Your Day Drink On
Labor Day weekend is pretty much HERE people. If you haven’t been planning your weekend menu, you might be in a complete panic right about now. Maybe you are really on top of it and have the entire weekend planned, gone grocery shopping and are already starting massive prep for an epic weekend of grilling (if this is you, serious props because danggggg). Either way, you’re going to need some cocktails to alleviate the stress or to enjoy after all your slaving in the kitchen and over the grill. Let’s face it, you know you’re going to basically be hammered the entire weekend and you can’t survive on vodka tonics for three days. To go along with that massive menu you’ve got going on, you need some serious drink variety in your grilling lives. Here’s the ultimate list of drinks that’ll get ya nice and twisted, but don’t taste like pure alcohol (we’ve all grown out of loving that taste since college, right?). There’s some fancy AF cocktail, some fruity cocktails, and even a few manly cocktails that the men will gladly kick back with instead of a cold beer. We’ll just be kicking back with these as the final long summer weekend rolls by if you need us.
