Memorial Day is an annual holiday honoring the memories of the men and women who have died while in service to the United States, and usually kicks off the start of summer celebrations around the country. Due to the ongoing pandemic, the holiday might be a little bit different this year, with social distancing and stay-at-home orders still in effect in various regions.

However, while some may not be able to go to beaches and barbecues, and bars still may not be open either, that doesn’t mean the holiday can’t still be celebrated with plenty of spirited cocktails. Check out these six options for Memorial Day 2020.
