Mamma mia . . . raise a glass to all mothers!
We shouldn’t need a reason to raise a glass to our mothers, for there is no greater friend or support than they. They are magnificent in everything they do. From raising us as kids to sticking by us as wayward teenagers and being the occasional shoulder to cry on – they’ve always had our backs and love us unconditionally. Which is often why we celebrate Mother’s Day every year in the UK.
The origins of Mother's Day and the commemoration of motherhood go back to the ancient Greeks. Their spring festival celebrated the goddess Rhea, who was considered the mother of the gods. While the date varies from place to place, this year Mother's Day in the UK is celebrated on March 27. Your mom (and the motherlike figures in your life) deserves a day just for her. Sure, you could get her a cute gift, but what good is a dedicated day if she doesn’t have a good drink to pair with it? We’ve rounded up our top drinks for celebrating the holiday, from floral favorites that are just as good as a bouquet of her favorite flowers to sparkling sippers that will make her feel like royalty. These cocktails will not only please the palate, but also the heart of any mother.
How to make A perfect DRINK FOR YOUR MOM ?
Rosy RoSE Champagne
Flowers are now obsolete and commonplace: if you want to give a woman a beautiful gift, champagne is always the right answer. And if great champagne is the vinous equivalent of a white diamond, then rosé Champagne is a pink diamond.
- 120 ml Dom Perignon Rose
- 15 ml Rose Water
- 15 ml Cranberry Juice
- Half a squeezed Lemon Top with dried rose petals
Instead of giving mom a bouquet of violets, give her this cocktail instead. It highlights the elegant floral aroma of crème de violette with gin, fresh lemon juice, and Lambrusco, for a drink that's both elegant and sparkling.
- 30 ml Amázzoni Gin
- 15 ml Crème De Violette
- 15 ml Lemon juice, freshly squeezed
- 30 ml Lambrusco Garnish with dehydrated lemon wheel or lemon twist
"Let us make a toast to all the women who have given us so much love and devotion. From superheroines to queens to all the amazing people in between, mothers inspire us every day to achieve the impossible. Whatever you do, however you identify yourself, whatever size, shape, or faith you have, keep it up - you are absolutely awesome! And remember, although there is an official day dedicated to mothers around the world, in truth, every day is Mother's Day. "
