Labor Day weekend marked the end of our summer festivities, our pup chasing balls on the grass, steaks on the grill and those lovely, refreshing frozen daiquiris. Oh, how we'll miss those daiquiris. Sadly, we put away the blender. But cooler weather, autumn jackets and the pumpkins appearing in the market put us in the mood for some more traditional cocktails.
It's been a tough job but we've endured in the name of scientific research and what follows are the recipes for our favorite cocktails, prepared in our favorite ways. We tend to like our drinks a bit on the sweeter side so keep that in mind if you're trying our versions. Cheers!
2 oz. Vodka
1 oz. Cranberry juice
1/2 oz. Triple Sec
1/2 oz. Lime juice
1 Teaspoon simple syrup
Shake over ice and garnish with a wedge of lime and/or a maraschino cherry.
