Memorial Day Weekend Cocktail Recipes

It's Memorial Day Weekend! While I wish I was out of town or at least hitting up a BBQ, I'll settle for enjoying my three-day weekend in the quiet city while sipping a cocktail. Planning to hit a party? Be a hit with this beautiful punch bowl cocktail recipe, Jaegermeister-based no less. Or for more intimate parties, I have cocktail recipes for you too. Hit more to see all the recipes to celebrate the holiday weekend.

Hinterland Punch
Created by Josh Mazza
Serves 6-8
12oz J√§germeister 
5oz Grenadine
10oz Ruby Red Grapefruit
20oz Roobis tea
1 Bottle (26oz) Sparkling Ros√© 
8oz raspberries
8oz strawberries 

Add edible flowers to tea and freeze in a bread pan. Combine other ingredients in a punch bowl. Add frozen tea/flowers. Cut berries and add into punch.

Aperol Spritz
3 Parts Cinzano Prosecco
2 Parts Aperol
1 Dash Soda
Ice and a slice of Orange

Method: Add ice and a slice of orange, pour in the Prosecco, the Aperol and add a dash of soda. This avoids the Aperol settling at the bottom.

1 ½ parts elit Vodka
1 scoop of Lemon Sorbet or another different flavor
3 parts Prosecco

Method: Blend all ingredients in a blender with a bit of crushed ice. Pour into a coupette and garnish with fresh lemon zest.

Which cocktail will you be making for the long weekend?
