5 Easy Cocktails For Your Labor Day Barbecue

Posted: 08/30/2012 3:13 pm

This Monday (we hope), you're getting a much-needed (and much-deserved) day off. And we also hope you'll be celebrating with a delicious cocktail in hand.

But we suggest you don't exhaust yourself by shaking Ramos Gin Fizzes for five minutes each or muddling mint for endless rounds of Mojitos. Instead, at your Labor Day celebrations, fix drinks that don't require quite as much, well, labor.

To help you out, here are five recipes that are both delicious and simple to make even if you're serving a group. Try one of these over the holiday weekend, or really anytime you're thirsty. Cheers!

One of Mexico's favorite drinks, this simple combo of tequila, lime juice, salt and grapefruit soda tastes best when everybody makes their own. Just set up a small table with blanco tequila, ice, a bowl of halved limes, a few bottles of Jarritos or Squirt and a dish of salt. It couldn't be easier.
