Memorial Day Cocktails From Sunrise to Sunset

The perfect drinks to start your 3-day weekend

Last year, we suggested you serve our infamous white sangria recipe as part of your Memorial Day festivities. This year, we’re pulling out all the stops. Below you’ll find three of our favorite cocktails — one for every meal of the day.

Jump-start the holiday with an early brunch and this special take on the classic Tequila Sunrise, the Blood Orange Sunrise.

For your afternoon barbecue, instead of pairing your burger with a beer or a big red, like zinfandel, make a Watermelon Cucumber Cooler, or a Lemon Drop on Ice. These cocktails are picnic perfect — not only are they refreshing to drink, but they are easy to make. Nothing will hit the spot better.

And finally, after Memorial Day dinner, treat yourself to a grown-up milkshake. This Dirty Road Milkshake Shooter will have your guests reminiscing about your party all year long.
