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:
- Rub a wedge of lemon around the rim of the cocktail glass, and dip into coarse sugar before setting aside.
- Pour two ounces of vodka, one ounce of pomegranate liqueur, and one ounce of pink grapefruit juice, into a cocktail shaker with crushed ice.
- 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!
