Happy Labor Day Weekend! I’m always sad to see Labor Day come, because it signals the end of Summer. Of course it’s not the official end of summer, that doesn’t happen for a couple more weeks, but the kids are back in school, and swimming comes to an end after this weekend.
Today I have a couple fun Labor Day cocktail recipes to share with you. Whether you’re getting together with friends to have one more summer barbecue or bonfire, or you’re just looking for something to sit on your back porch and reflect on the changing of the seasons these two cocktail recipes.
The first one is a super easy recipe from an UnLABORous cocktail from Camarena Tequila. Simple, refreshing and perfect for barbecuing or hanging outdoors with friends and family.

- 1 ½ oz Familia Camarena Silver Tequila

Combine Familia Camarena Silver Tequila with lemon lime soda in a rocks glass filled with ice. Add a splash of cranberry juice. Garnish with a lemon peel.
And here’s a cocktail recipe from Blue Ice American Vodka that celebrates our hard work as employed Americans.
