Labor Less + Wine More this Labor Day!

Labor Day

You’ve worked hard organizing, project managing, and crossing things off your to-do list. So now it’s time to celebrate the fruits of your labors with food, friends, and your fav JaM wines. But don’t let that be a drag. Wherever you are, whatever you’re doing this Labor Day weekend, chilling is absolutely essential. Our motto is simple: more Butter, less Labor!

It’s time to truly take the labor out of the holiday. Whether you’re celebrating the labor movement, your love of BBQ-ing, or your last three-day weekend for a while (yeah, us too), we’ve got something for everyone. To help you keep things easy breezy this weekend, here are a few lazy Labor Day tips to help you spend less time laborin’ and more time sippin’.

Brunch Like a Boss

When it comes to Labor Day brunch, no one wants to spend hours in the kitchen. The solution? Crack open a single-serve ButterCan the night before and spend a little time prepping your bomb breakfast, so you can simply sip back and enjoy yourself the next morning. 

Here are a few of our favorite “make-ahead” brunch ideas and the JaM Cellar’s wines we love to sip them with:

Grill and Chill

We admit we didn’t invent the concept of the Labor Day BBQ, but we simply can’t argue with a classic! Unlike the big holiday meals, a Labor Day BBQ is the perfect way to enjoy delicious food without being stuck inside the kitchen for hours on end. Even the grill master gets to sip and socialize while everything comes together. 

All it takes is a few recipes (and a bottle of Butter!) for your laid-back barbecue to come together with ease. Try one of these super-easy ideas for your labor-less Labor Day:

🌽 These Corn and Tomato Gnocchi Foil Packets do the work for you on the grill, while you sip some ButterCans by the pool. 

🍍 Move over, Hawaiian pizza, there’s a new girl in town: Grilled Pineapple Chicken. The acidity from the pineapple will pair perfectly with your ice cold bottle of Butter Bubbles, so make sure to have plenty chilled ahead of time.

🍗 Soak up the delicious Cali vibes with this easy California Grilled Chicken. The easy marinade goes perfectly with our creamy, dreamy Butter Chardonnay so stock up here while you’re party preppin!

You wouldn’t want to let this summer end without eating as much grilled goodness as possible, right? Check out our list of Favorite Wine and Grilled Food Pairings here!

Keep it Cool

Nobody wants to reach for a warm bottle of Butter Bubbles or lukewarm ButterCans while they’re soaking up the sunshine this Labor Day. Treat your besties to ice cold bevvys with a few fun party tricks!

Play DJ

The food is already prepped from the night before, the bevvies are being served…what’s left for a Butter Babe to do? Fire up the tunes, obviously. But, choosing the right playlist to fit the mood can be a bit of a chore. We’ve done the heavy lifting for you this Labor Day! 

Let the JaM Geniuses play DJ for the day, and head to our Spotify to find the perfect playlist for whatever mood you’re in.

Save it for Later

That succulent that needs repotting? That dusty floor in the garage? The project you’ve been putting off? It can wait. You shouldn’t have to worry about the little things on Labor Day, and you certainly shouldn’t have to sweep. Give yourself permission to put off chores till next weekend, and instead let your focus be on taking a break. Go open a bottle of Butter Bubbles, find a spot in the sun, and crack open that book you’ve been meaning to start–or just sit and soak in your relaxing day. 

Just because Labor Day is considered the official end of summer, that doesn’t mean it’s time to put away the #Chardonnay! 

The party doesn’t stop ’til the wine runs out…which could be a while thanks to all the online wine delivery options! Order your fav summer sippers like Butter Chardonnay, ButterCans, Butter Cab, and Butter Bubbles—along with JaM Cabernet, Toast Sparkling, and Sugar Sweet White.

From all of us here at JaM Cellars, we wish you a very relaxing Labor Day weekend! 🇺🇸🎉🥂
