Cocktail Recipes for Mom
This drink is great if you’re entertaining a few moms for Mother’s Day. Sangria is always a big hit!
• 1 bottle of Red Moscato
• 4 cups of 7up or Lemon Lime Soda
• 2 cups of Chopped up Strawberries, Blueberries, and Apples or Pears
This is such an easy drink! You can make it within minutes. Cut up fresh fruit then add it to a pitcher, pour the bottle of Red Moscato, then stir in the 7up. Enjoy!
If you remember our Hawaiian Mimosa, you’ll remember that it was red at the bottom and bright orange at the top. This drink is the inverse! (Please note this drink requires a lot of patience which I had to practice….)
• 1 part Mango Nectar
• 2 parts Red Moscato
• Splash of Cranberry Juice
• Cranberries or mango slices for garnish
In a champagne glass, add 1 part of mango nectar or juice. Then very slowy (very slowly or you’ll mess the entire drink up) tilt your champagne glass and slowly pour in the Moscato. This is a delicate task and should be done by droplet, if you pour too fast the drink will mix together and create a solid pink pasty color. Once you master the art of patience you should have a dual colored champagne glass, now just add a splash of cranberry juice and add your garnish.
This is such a classic drink we had to add it to our Mother’s Day list! To kick things up a notch we’re making flower ice to add to our drinks – just to give it a little something extra!
• Edible Flowers (can be found at Sprouts, or local farmers market)
• Bottled Water
• Ice cube trays
Just add the flowers to ice cube trays, add bottled water (so it looks clear and not cloudy when it’s frozen) and freeze!
• Flower Ice
• 3 part Cranberry Juice Cocktail
• 1 parts Vodka
• 1 Lime Wedge
Get a cute and fancy cocktail glass, and add your flower ice. Next add your cranberry juice and vodka, and then finish it off by adding a splash of fresh lime juice. Stir and enjoy!
The best part of Mother’s Day is enjoying it with your mom, so pass these recipes on to her and make them together!
