Labor Day may be here, but your fun summer evening aren’t over yet. There may be a few more warm evenings, though it might be too cool for the pool. These drinks using Don Julio Tequila, Zacapa 23 Rum, Ginger and Jalepenos will warm you up, even on a cool evening.  I think there’s still time to run out and get the ingredients to make this Cocktail for your friendly gathering.  One more last hurrah before you huddle under the blankets and close the windows.
