It’s hard to believe, but Labor Day is nearly upon us — one last chance for a boozy brunch party or all-day grill-out. (At least, one that’s sanctioned by the calendar.) For whatever your exploits this coming weekend, we recommend you grab a bottle of bubbles, start work on one of these three fine cocktails in advance — and then just top ‘em off with bubbly at the last minute.
You’ll be the hero of your own party. And while we generally advocate measuring your cocktail ingredients with precision, here’s a secret: If you top these cocktails with a little more or little less sparkling wine, nobody’s gonna know the difference.
