42Below Vodka Celebrates 40-Hour Work Week Day

In honor of the day the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938 went into effect, on Sunday, October 24, 42BELOW vodka celebrates 40-Hour Workweek Day. Not one to celebrate alone, 42BELOW invites all the hard-working folks across the country to unplug, log off and kick back with a cocktail. In the spirit of working less and playing more, 42BELOW raises a class to a time when 5 o'clock truly was a 'happy hour' and blackberries were only used to garnish a cocktail or provide a daily boost of antioxidants.

42BELOW felt compelled to make a 40-Hour Workweek Day cocktail to honor the hard working folks who would really like to screen calls, ignore e-mails and punch out early. The 42BELOW Vodka Professor, Raj "The Hardest Working Man in Mixology" Nagra, shares his latest cocktail concoction, "Burnt Out" to help everyone celebrate that 41st or 42nd hour.

Burnt Out
  • 1 1/2 parts 42BELOW Vodka
  • 6 chunks of burnt lemon and vanilla
  • 1/2 part Cointreau
  • 1/3 part vanilla syrup
  • 1/2 part fresh lemon juice

Scorch lemon, vanilla pods and sugar with torch or lighter; muddle and add other ingredients, shake well with ice and fine strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a scorched lemon wheel.
