Holiday Weekend Cocktails

Dear Diary,

Labor Day weekend is almost here, and my favorite way to celebrate is with friends, beach time, and Holiday Weekend Cocktails.  Hosting a labor day weekend party?  We’ve got you covered with this summer-meets-fall drink!  It’s a bitter-sweet holiday weekend– we’re saying goodbye to the glorious summer sun, and winding down into Fall.  But I have to say, I couldn’t be more excited for Fall fashion, crisp weather, and fall feast favorites!  This cocktail is the perfect combination of summer and fall– the grapefruit juice provides that sweet and citrus summer taste that we expect, while the rosemary simple syrup adds an earthy-fall element!  Plus, by using Truvia (zero calorie natural sweetener), we balance out the tart grapefruit, but keep this drink low in calories… wooooo woo!

  • Boil 1.5 cups of water and add the Truvia and rosemary to steep.
  • When cool, add the mixture to the grapefruit juice (about 1/2 cup)
  • Add as much vodka as you’d like (I don’t like my drinks too strong, so I added only one shot to my cocktail)
  • Add ice, and a spring of Rosemary for garnish… Now Enjoy! ;)
