Tequila Recipes for a "Pitcher Perfect" Labor(less) Day!‏

Are you preparing for a big Labor Day celebration this year? If so, slow down! There's no need to work so hard for a national holiday that demands a "no-work" type of day. Instead entertain with Sauza Tequila and mix up a few cocktails "pitcher-style!" Ditch the unwanted labor and spend less time on back and forth trips to the kitchen when you serve the perfect cocktail in a pitcher! 

To ensure that your cocktails are photo ready, arrange a pitcher and drinks on a bright colored table cloth with vibrant garnishes to add context! Your guests will love it and are sure to be impressed but to make an even bigger impression, don't forget the little details like using small bungee cords or grommets to anchor your tablecloth. You don't want to be bothered with a your covering billowing in the breeze while you are relaxing on your favorite lounge chair and chatting with friends.

You may want to look around the house for a few decorative items that are not only eye-catching but would compliment the bright colors of the table cloth, garnishes and drinks. Use cute and unique serving trays and small dishes for your garnishes and snacks ~ make it easy and fun for your friends and family to grab a drink and a bite to eat. Whether you're partying in the backyard, lounging by the pool or hanging out inside the house, a pitcher of refreshing "Bittersweet Summer" or "Labor Day Lemonade" is sure to keep your crowd happy and will definitely keep the party going for as long as you want it to. Check out the pitcher-style recipes below.
