Cocktail Recipes for Perfect Labor(less) Day Enjoyment!

It’s time for Labor Day; a day we celebrate American labor, the achievements of workers everywhere, and the social and economic value they bring to the country. To celebrate we recommend limiting the amount of work you do on this day, just enjoy a day full of relaxation and delicious cocktails. Whether you’re spending Labor Day grilling with family and friends, or soaking up the sun by the pool,  these cocktails recipes are the perfect way to enjoy the day. A great way to limit the amount of work you have to do on Labor Day (and get to enjoy your cocktails quicker), is to create a pitcher full of mouthwatering cocktails made with Sauza TequilaCruzan RumQ Drinks, and Alberta Rye Dark Batch Whisky.
