Red, White, and Boozin’

Happy Labor Day Weekend!!!  As sad as I am to retire my white pants and white jack rogers, I sure do love a holiday weekend!!!  (Plus who am I kidding? I live in Florida…I’ll be in summer clothes for a couple more weeks months)  Rob’s sister Erin is in town from San Diego so we plan on majorly celebrating at the beach.  So of course I wanted a festive {read: patriotic} cocktail to sip, on the sand.  Luckily I came across this layered drink on the Tieks instagram and knew I needed to figure out how to make my own version! (Hint: the key is patience which is not my strength)  How are you celebrating Labor Day?
