Memorial Day has been around for a long time since the Civil War era. Soldiers who fought on those bloody wars have been doing their very best to protect our freedom and our motherland. Many people celebrate Memorial Day through cemetery or memorial visits, holding big family gatherings and participating in parades that represents the people who have paid for their lives for our freedom and survival.

Celebrate Memorial Day this weekend with a cocktail. If you’re looking for the best ideas and recipes for a Memorial Day cocktail, then you’re in luck. We have gathered the best recipes that you can make:

Garrick Club Punch

This historic sipper tastes as good now as it did back in 1835 when it was invented. The recipe, discovered by advisory board member and cocktail historian David Wondrich, combines a bottle of gin with lemons, sugar, maraschino liqueur and soda water. Perfect for sharing with friends on a warm afternoon.

Red, White and Blue Margaritas

If you’re looking for a way to cool down this 4th of July (including Memorial Day this weekend), try kicking back with one of these. Both strawberry and lime margaritas make a statement, and the addition of frozen blueberries adds a festive kick. If you don’t drink or are looking to make one for the kids, don’t worry. These can be made with or without spirits, and they taste just as good.

The Bulleit Old Fashioned

A good ol’ fashioned drink that will surely let you honor the ones who helped out making the country great with a dash of bourbon and a twist of lemon and orange with a large ice cube. This is as close you can get in tasting the good old days.

Steak Island Beer Cocktail

This refreshing beer cocktail has a savory twist: no, there’s no meat in it, but the secret ingredient is steak sauce. It adds sweetness, tang, salt, and a bit of underlying umami that isn’t too overpowering. You can prepare the base the night before and combine with chilled beer when ready to serve. Try it with burgers!

Moscow Mule

A strong, Russian workhorse of a drink. This cocktail’s origin has nothing to do with Moscow or mules, but after a few sips of this vodka, ginger beer, and lime concoction, no one will care.

Jalapeño Grapefruit Margarita

This margarita is the absolute best and easiest sweet, spicy cocktail for all your entertaining needs! Don’t forget to line the rim of the glass for a sweet/peppery contrast!
