Cocktail of the Week: The Last of the Summer Cocktails

Ah, Labor Day. Our final chance to get summer right.

Instead of posting a new cocktail, here’s a medley of seasonal classics and one new favorite, all of them designed to help you beat the heat one more time. With base spirits a’plenty!

The Tom Collins (gin)
The Cuba Libre (rum)
The Moscow Mule (vodka)
The Dark & Stormy (dark rum)
The Harvey Wheelbanger (rye, and no, I don’t want to talk about Matt Harvey yet)
The Paloma (tequila)

And if you’re hosting a farewell to the summer blowout, here’s the can’t-miss, make a batch early, equal parts recipe for the Corpse Reviver #2.
