Yankee fans and cocktail lovers can unite over these Derek Jeter-inspired libations.

To celebrate Derek Jeter Day on Sept. 7, lifestyle expert and CEO of SipTeaze.com, a Web site dedicated to cocktail mixology and entertaining, Nicole Young created a menu of Jeter-themed cocktails.

“I’m a lifelong yankee fan and die-hard Derek Jeter fan, so I decided to design some cocktails to celebrate his amazing career and to drown my sorrows with when he retires,” Young told New York Smash.

The cocktails will be available at Bounce Sporting Club and Hashtag Bar throughout the month of September, but you can also enjoy them at home with the exclusive recipes below.
