If you’re celebrating Labor Day with friends and enjoying a tasty meal with some adult libations, then we are here to help. Hopefully you already saw the best pimento cheese recipe we published recently, which brings a tasty snack idea to the table. In terms of libations, here we’re sharing two simple cocktail recipes, each with only three ingredients, from two beloved restaurants in 30A: FOOW (formerly Fish Out of Water) at WaterColor, and Havana Beach Bar & Grill at The Pearl Hotel. We hope you enjoy raising a toast this Labor Day. Enjoy!

2 Simple Cocktail Recipes

Weekend Stroll

As its name implies, the Weekend Stroll is a light and refreshing cocktail that’s perfect for warm-weather months, making it an ideal at-home happy hour drink. It’s simple to make and can be easily modified, depending on your preference (for example, for a little more kick, add 1.5 oz. of Tito’s to the shaker, along with the St. Germain and grapefruit juice). This tastes so very Florida!

Ward Eight

The Ward Eight is a classic cocktail that has withstood the test of time, dating back to the Pre-Prohibition Era. This refreshing yet simple-to-make cocktail is a great way to elevate your stay-at-home happy hours. We especially like how its simplicity allows for the flavors of the rye whiskey to delightfully carry through to your taste buds.
