With Mother’s Day coming up, you want to craft a cocktail that celebrates her sweetness. Instead of a boring bouquet of flowers or quick brunch at a restaurant, make sure to surprise her with a unique gift. Whether she loves tequila or whiskey, here are 10 delicious drinks that will “wow” your mom on her special day.
Cranberry Pear Prosecco Cocktail
Mimosas are the standard drink for those Mother’s Day brunches. These cocktails are composed of chilled citrus juice and champagne. If you are looking for an elegant drink, the Mimosa is certainly a great choice. This year, put a little spin on this classic cocktail with some cranberry juice and peach nectar. The flavors produce a sweet-tart taste. For a bit of flair, substitute the champagne for prosecco to add a few uplifting bubbles.
Blackberry Vanilla Float
Want a drink that is both a cocktail and dessert in one package? Try the Blackberry Vanilla Float. All you need is a little homemade blackberry syrup. When the dark berry syrup hits the club soda, your mom will adore the look of this fancy pink drink. For the alcohol, choose vodka or gin. Add blackberry soda over a scoop of creamy vanilla ice cream. With a sprig of rosemary, you have a drink that might be too pretty to enjoy. However, dig right in for a Mother’s Day celebration treat.
Bourbon Mint Lemonade
Mint juleps are associated with brunches. If you are tired of the same old drink, take your cocktail to the next level with a Bourbon Mint Lemonade. This sipper only has three ingredients, and it is a refreshing mix for your next Mother’s Day outing. The spiked lemonade is easily made into large batches. All you have to do is mix bourbon, lemonade, and chopped mint into a pitcher. Place in a refrigerator until it is ready to serve. That’s it! The longer the drink sits, the more the mint flavor infuses itself with the lemonade and bourbon. On those warm Sunday afternoons, this lemonade is a light drink.
