Memorial Day Drink Recipes For Your Holiday Gathering

If you're preparing for your Memorial Day gathering and you've secured your menu but don't know a nice cocktail to add to the line up...no worries, I have some delicious & simple cocktail recipes that will be sure to please this Memorial Day!

Hennessy V.S.O.P tends to be a crowd favorite, I love this recipe because you can make a big batch and not be a bartender for your whole event. The punch adds some fruity elements, giving it a sweet and smooth taste.
