Written for Labor Day, these cocktail recipes work great for 4th of July BBQs, picnics and parties. They'll put some red-white-and-blue zest in your holiday festivities. Recipes focus more on fun flavors rather than intense alcohol overload. The goal isn't to get hammered, but to enjoy a social bevvie with friends and family. The nice thing about these drinks is that they taste just as good non-alcoholic as with the booze. Instead of schnapps, for example, you can use Odwalla, Bolthouse Farms, Northland, Ocean Spray or V8 100 % fruit drinks.
My husband worked as a bartender at a private club. He also tended bar for private parties. While at the club, he learned to make dozens of drinks and invented some of his own. These recipes are for drinks that we have either learned to make or invented ourselves. Patriotic Labor Day Cocktails and Fun Alcoholic Beverage Recipes
