Inset: David Giesbrecht/Columbia Pictures
Labor Day weekend has arrived to close out summer. And whether you'll be hitting the beach or battening down the hatches in anticipation of Hurricane Earl, we've got the drinks for you!

First up though is a cocktail in honor of our favorite summer blockbuster:

Clamato Angie

Whether playing a top-notch secret agent in Salt or playing with her kids, Angelina Jolie – and moms everywhere – deserve a dedicated cocktail this holiday weekend. How to make it?

From Il Matto restaurant in N.Y.C.

• 1½ oz gin
• 3 oz clamato juice
• ½ oz Worcester sauce
• Splash of lemon juice
• Salt
• Pepper
• Fresh thyme

In a mixing bar glass, add all the ingredients on ice. Stir and serve in a glass. Garnish with a thyme leaf and serve.

Is sweet more your thing? Try this:

Dark and Stormy

It's not a favorite of the islands for nothing! As Hurricane Earl works its way up the shore, get into the mood for some time in doors with a drink that has weathered more storms than most.

From Alchemy Guys at Bar Seven Five in Manhattan's Andaz Hotel

• 1 oz soda water
• 1½ oz Flor de Cana 4 year Rum
• ¾ oz Fresh Lime Juice
• ¾ oz House Made Ginger Syrup
• ½ oz Cruzan Black Strap Rum

In a highball glass, mix the ingredients over ice and garnish with ginger candy.

Endless Summer

Finally, if you're a calorie counter, consider a simple drink under 100 calories. At only 95, and with two ingredients, you know it's got to be good. The TY KU brand is all natural and can help anyone who likes to drink but is looking to maintain that bikini figure into fall.

From TY KU Soju – fans include Jay-Z, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jessica Biel, Kate Hudson and Jessica Simpson.

• 2 oz TY KU Sake
• Splash of pomegranate juice

Enjoy chilled!
