Party, eco-style

Fun, fresh cocktail recipe

It’s Labor Day Weekend. You know what that means—everyone’s home for three whole days, and it’s party time. Instead of buying all your supplies at the local grocery store, try heading out to your garden and picking some blackberries, limes and mint (or buy ’em at the farmers’ market). Here is a fun, fresh cocktail recipe from our friends at Cheers!
