The Labour Day long weekend is usually our last hurrah before the fall season, but as vacations and events remain on hold, it’s looking a little different this year. However, even though our plans may be postponed or cancelled, we can still enjoy some fall-inspired, easy-to-make cocktails from the comfort of our own home.
Iceberg vodka is sharing some fun and unique at-home cocktail recipes so your readers can tap into their inner mixologist and help the transition into the new fall season with some of these delicious boozy beverages.
