Summer’s end always tastes bittersweet – bitter at the thought of limited beach days, flip flops and ice cream filled afternoons, but sweetness (and major relief) that summer’s humidity, sticky subways, and undistinguishable aromas will soon be washed away by Fall’s cool, crisp breeze.

Labor Day – a physical marker to summer’s end – is the perfect way to relax, entertain, and celebrate summer!

William Grant & Sons has curated a few laborless cocktails to celebrate this Labor Day – all in the hopes to quickly whip up a cocktail with simple ingredients so what’s stressed is enjoyment!

Cheers!
