Gabrielle's X-Rated Kiss Cocktail - X-Rated Fusion Liqueur

While there is always the option of flowers and chocolates on Mother's Day, it's probably quite safe to bet that your mum will be equally as happy with a home-made cocktail, shaken or stirred together in her honour.

And since there is such a broad variety of cocktails to choose from, I've decided to put together a post that will allow you to match the make of cocktail to the mood of your mum. So read on to decipher just what type of tasty cocktail your mum will most like to sip on when the 30th of March rolls around and you're once again able to thank her for the many years of love and care she gave you.

The Blushing Lady

If your mum is a fruity blend of classic charm and quirky humour, then this cocktail of the one for her. Perfectly designed to blend the taste of tropical fruits with the stunning appearance of a classic cocktail. The flavours of the Blushing Lady cocktail range between sweet, sour and tart, making it a seemingly apt depiction of your mum's tolerance of your teenager years. To serve up this cocktail on Mother's Day, simply follow these steps:

  1. Rub a wedge of lemon around the rim of the cocktail glass, and dip into coarse sugar before setting aside.
  2. Pour two ounces of vodka, one ounce of pomegranate liqueur, and one ounce of pink grapefruit juice, into a cocktail shaker with crushed ice.
  3. Shake it all up and strain into the prepared glass, before serving.

The sugar-rimmed glass is the the perfect finishing touch to best express the sprinkle of sweet that makes your mum the best mum in town.

Glamour Girl Martini

Your mum hasn't always just been your mum. Long before your arrival in her life, she began to make her mark as a lovely young woman with girlish charm. Celebrate the glamorous girl that she still is with a Martini that'll bring her girlish giggles back. A fun drink that is light and easy to make, the Glamour Girl Martini is the perfect Mother's Day cocktail for any mum who is still radiant with girlish charm and who inspires disbelief on the rare occasion that she's honest about her age!

Colorful Cocktail Drinks that Match Your Outfit

Colorful Cocktail Drinks that Match Your Outfit

Matching your cocktail drinks to your outfit can add a special touch to any event. A signature cocktail can be simple, yet effective for your wedding style when you match the drink’s color with your outfit. For instance, Agave Margarita goes well with a beautiful yellow frock.

The Blue Swoon

The ingredients of the blue swoon consist of 1 oz. blue curaçao liqueur, added to 1 oz. apple juice along with 4 oz. champagne or Prosecco and ½ oz. Rose’s Lime Juice. The ingredients when combined are mixed in a cocktail shaker. A martini glass is used to strain the cocktail into. The rim of glass when lined with sugar and garnished with a slice of apple adds a sweet touch to it.

Blue is one of the popular colors worn for parties and other occasions. It goes well on many skin tones and there are endless shades to choose from for the right occasion, like deep navy to light blue.

Pink, Fruity and Frosted

Pink, Fruity and Frosted

Back in the early 1990s, Canadian comedy troupe The Kids in the Hall did a skit called “Girl-Drink Drunk.” In the skit, a man who doesn’t drink is talked into consuming a fruity cocktail because it’s only a “girl drink,” implying it somehow has less punch than a manlier scotch.

Of course, what follows is a descent into the world of “girl drinks,” ending with our hapless hero, now destitute and homeless, paying kids to buy Freezies he doctors with cheap liquor and a much-used cocktail umbrella.

I can sympathize. While I don’t overindulge, I have an uncanny knack for ordering “girl drinks.” My wife finds it hilarious. For my part, I’m resigned to the fact if I order a cocktail or flavored martini on vacation, it’s going to be a) pink, b) come in a coconut or plastic novelty container and c) will have be garnished with at least three pieces of fruit, an orchid and a swizzle stick shaped like a malformed flamingo.

Living the Dangerous Life of the Cocktail Drinker

Okay, I have to admit, I have a sweet tooth. That alone leads me to order cocktails which might, in a gender-biased world, be seen as feminine. And if I’m lounging by a resort pool idly wondering how I can learn more about poolside service, that’s fine.

If I’m sitting in a bar and the local biker club walks in just as the bartender hands me a drink that looks like two pineapples, a coconut and a bottle of Midori had a terrible blender accident, well, let’s say I chose my drinking spots with more care nowadays.
