Now that you have made plans for Mother’s Day, how about kicking it all off with a special Mother’s Day cocktail, or ending the day with a nice, relaxing cocktail.
If you start your Mother’s Day in the morning, how about starting with a memorable treat: Breakfast in Bed. Next to the plate of Mom’s favorite breakfast – a glass of bubbly, flowery or even fruity. This tray would also work great for lunch, just exchange the French Toast for a lunch treat out on the patio. These light cocktails are perfect for sipping outside in the shade on a sunny afternoon or early evening as well.
Here are three simple recipes for Mom’s special day:
2 oz. PAMA Liqueur
2 oz. Champagne
¼ oz. orange liqueur
1 oz. fresh orange juice
Combine all ingredients except champagne in a shaker. Add ice and shake vigorously. Strain into a chilled flute and top with champagne.
Tulipe de Lis
This floral cocktail is a perfect complement to a vase of flowers on the breakfast or lunch tray.
2 oz. Denizen Rum
¾ oz. St Germain Elderflower Liqueur
¾ oz. fresh lime juice
½ tsp. granulated sugar
Place sugar and lime juice in a shaker and stir to dissolve sugar. Add remaining ingredients with ice and shake well. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass and garnish with a wedge of lime. For an added touch, garnish with a tulip petal.
Welcome the warmer weather with this sparkling, fruity tipple perfect for a lazy afternoon.
