Aside from being the symbolic end of summer, Labor Day also marks the unofficial end of wearing white without being considered a fashion faux pas. While the “no white after Labor Day” rule has certainly loosened up in recent years, we still think it would be fun to say goodbye to summer with one last salute to the color white. Whether you choose to throw an amazing “white party” or you just kick back on your porch with your significant other, these white cocktails are sure to give you one last burst of that magical summer feeling.


White Lady Cocktail

Even the biggest tomboy will feel elegant drinking a White Lady cocktail. Make sure you chill your cocktail glass ahead of time so the drink is perfectly refreshing.


Shake up the following ingredients in an ice-filled cocktail shaker:

  • 2 oz. London Dry Gin
  • 1/2 oz. Cointreau
  • 1/2 oz. Lemon juice
  • 1 egg (this should go without saying, but crack the egg into the shaker. Don’t throw a whole egg in with the shell.)


Pour the mixture into the chilled cocktail glass and garnish with a thin lemon slice.


White Wine Mojito


This white wine mojito is so easy to make and since the recipe is for a whole pitcher, you have a great reason to invite some friends over for a drink.


Just mix up all of the following ingredients in a big pitcher and serve:

  • 1 bottle white wine (choose your favorite)
  • 1 cup sparkling lemonade
  • 1 cup chopped mint leaves
  • 2 limes, sliced and juiced


Coconut Vanilla Bellini


This coconut vanilla Bellini is the type of drink you need to serve at an elegant white party. It’s glamorous and you’ll seem like the ultimate hostess.


For the sugared rims:

  • Combine 1/4 cup white sanding sugar, 2 tablespoons granulated sugar and 1 vanilla bean (scrape the seeds of the vanilla bean and the vanilla bean pod) in a large bowl and mix it up.
  •  Coat the rims of the glasses in something stick and sweet, like leftover frosting or marshmallow fluff
  •  Dip into the sugar mixture to coat the rim


For the cocktail:

  • Pour 2 oz. of coconut juice blend or puree into the bottom of the flute
  • Fill the remaining space with Prosecco and stir with a long spoon to mix
