Cocktail Guru: Labor Day party ideas

Labor Day usually means a long weekend for many families and friends, marking the unofficial end to summer with many cookouts and gatherings.

The Cocktail Guru – Jonathan Pogash – stopped by on Friday morning to share some great food and beverage ideas to help entertain the whole family.

He shared the following:

Blood orange spritz
1 1/2 oz lillet
3 oz blood orange juice
Top with Lime seltzer
Method: Add directly to tall glass with ice and stir briefly. Can also be made on larger batch form.
Garnish: lemon wedge

Blue-Port Stormy
2 oz port wine
2 oz blueberry juice
Top with ginger beer
Method: Add directly to tall glass with ice and stir briefly. Can also be made on larger batch form.
Garnish: lime wedge and mint

Jonathan’s Favorite Finger Food:
Salami, cheddar, blueberry preserves on a pita chip. Done and done.

Happy Labor Day!
