Labor Day Weekend Cocktail Inspiration

With Labor Day falling on September 7 this year, we've almost made it to Labor Day Weekend! It's been an odd year so far, for sure, so a holiday weekend celebration sounds like a good excuse for a much-needed happy distraction. 

Savage Scorpions pulled together a few interesting Labor Day drink recipes that fit this holiday weekend nicely. We've linked the full recipes after each description. The only thing you need to add on your own to take these cocktails from ordinary to extraordinary is a few of our gourmet edible scorpions as either a garnish or an added ingredient. It's not necessary, but it sure makes things a lot more interesting! 

Sparkling Watermelon Punch

Holiday weekends often mean gathering with friends and family in the backyard. Punches are excellent for mixing drinks for everyone all at once. Even if you're just hanging out with a couple of people, having a punch pre-mixed means less mixing later because it's already ready. 

For a "nearly the end of summer" get-together, a watermelon punch is a perfect flavor. This particular recipe calls for serving this "punch for 2" in a mini watermelon but it could easily be adjusted to fill a full-sized watermelon. A little mint, vodka, sparkling wine, and limes and you're well on your way to a very refreshing cocktail.

Pina Colada Sangria

According to the description for this taste-tempting recipe, "one sip will transport you to the tropics!" Sounds like an excellent escape, even if it is happening in your own backyard! 

A pitcher full of this refreshing mixed drink is sure to please any holiday weekend crowd. It's got all the pineapple and coconut flavors of a Pina Colada with both rum and white wine. A great end-of-summer sipper.

Raspberry Beer Cocktail


Here we have another fruity cocktail with super simple ingredients that you very likely have on hand already. It's easy to mix up for one person at a time or all at once for a big group. 

Raspberries and lemonade are combined beautifully with vodka and beer. Just reading about it may sound like an odd combination but it looks incredible in the photo and will taste even better than it looks!

Summer Breeze Cocktail

Here's a delicious way to enjoy a whiskey drink on what's left of the warm days of summer. If you like whiskey highballs already, then this recipe is sure to please you with its new twist on the classic drink. Fresh orange slices, orange liqueur, ginger ale, and bourbon are all that's needed for this crowd-pleasing cocktail. (Well, all that plus a Savage Scorpion for garnish, of course!)

Even if you aren't able to celebrate this holiday with a big group of friends, a new cocktail recipe will always come in handy at some point in the future. Just like having a container of our creative drink ingredient on hand can come in handy for amping up any get-together that involves drinks or shots. You can easily order Savage Scorpions online anytime. Then, the next time the gang gets together, you can all answer the question, #HowSavageAreYou?
