Labor day in Florida where I am from is HOT, so I try to find Labor Day cocktails that will cool things down a bit. I also like to use fresh ingredients to make sure my drinks are as clean as possible. I prefer simple all natural ingredients and if that is not your thing then tweak these recipes by using sweeteners like Splenda and Agave. Just remember to keep the ingredients REAL!
