Mother’s Day is fast approaching, and if you’re scrambling to find a gift for the special lady in your life, why not try a different path and make a tasty cocktail instead? With spring bringing fresh produce and nice sunshine, this is the perfect occasion to make Mom a drink that is light and floral and shows how much you care. And it’s so much better than flowers.
Strawberries rule springtime, so why not add it in your cocktails? A blended version of the Whiskey Sour, this drink is tart, sweet, creamy and everything you’ll need to make Mom happy and boozed up on her special day.
With everything your mom has done for you, the least you can do is a little prep work ahead of time. This cocktail requires a rhubarb-vanilla syrup that you make yourself. Cachaça, lime juice, ginger ale and lavender are added for a sweet, spicy and citrusy taste. You’ll definitely have your mother feeling proud for this one.
If your mom loves spicy more than sweet, try this take on a Margarita. Using a jalapeño-infused honey syrup, this gives a spicy kick to the peach and tequila. It’s perfect for making in pitchers and sipping the day away.
Crack open the Champagne for this sparkling drink. This Sangria takes green apple vodka, pear nectar, sparkling wine and a dash of simple syrup for a tart bubbly cocktail that’s perfect for brunch, lunch or any meal during this special day.
