As the last three-day weekend of summer approaches, one question is ringing in our ears: “What will be our day-off drink?” Work weeks without Mondays are hard to come by, so we suggest taking full advantage of it by making yourself something special to sip on. Not only is this cocktail unique, it’s also patriotic. The perfect combination for Americans who are ready to celebrate the laborers who have made our country so great!
The Rosé, Bourbon and Blue:
Makes 8 servings
7 tbs raw sugar
7 tbs hot water
2 cups fresh blueberries
2 cups brewed black tea (unsweetened)
1 ½ cups rosé (a sweet, fruit-forward rosé will work best!)
1 cup bourbon
¾ cup fresh lemon juice
8 lemon slices
There you have it, another fabulous reason to be patriotic this Monday! We recommend going outside to enjoy the summer weather while wearing a pair of crispy white jeans, since it may be the last weekend this year that you’ll be able to take advantage of both.
Have a memorable and safe weekend- Happy Labor Day!
