Mother’s Day cocktails

Hi everyone,

As Mother’s Day is Sunday and brunch is a very popular option, I thought I would give you guys some drink recipes that I love. They’re super easy and guaranteed to be a hit, so let’s get into it.

First up we have Moscato Wine Punch.

What you need:

  • 1 bottle of your mom’s favorite wine. My mom, like myself is a white wine person
  • Simply Lemonade, regular lemonade or one of the flavors. That is totally up to you
  • Half a liter of Sprite
  • Various fruits, I like blackberries, raspberries and strawberries.

What you do:

  • Get a punchbowl and fill it with the wine, lemonade and the Sprite.
  • You can put it in the fridge to chill, then add the fruit. Or you can put the fruit in the freezer and use that to chill the punch
  • Serve and enjoy!

Next up we have Peach Sangria, this is great for any summer party and this recipe makes four to six drinks.

What you need:

  • 1 bottle of dry white wine
  • 1 cup of pineapple juice
  • 1 cup of orange juice
  • 3 ounces of peach brandy
  • 2 ounces of triple sec
  • 2 ounces of simple syrup
  • 2 to 4 ounces of peach puree
  • 1 Honey Crisp, Golden Delicious or Granny Smith apple. Cored and sliced
  • 1 orange, sliced
  • 3 peaches, pitted and sliced

What you do:

  • Place all the ingredients in a large pitcher and put in the fridge to chill for at least eight hours, or overnight depending on when you’re going to serve it.
  • Fill your glasses with ice and pour the sangria over top.
  • Add fresh cut fruit on top to garnish.
  • Serve and enjoy!

Our second to last cocktail is Strawberry Bellinis and this recipe makes four drinks.

What you need:

  • 3 cups of strawberries
  • 1/4 cup of powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons strawberry Moscato
  • 2 cups of rose champagne or prosecco
  • Strawberries to garnish

What you do:

  • Puree the strawberries in a blender or food processor and strain through a sieve.
  • In a blender combine the strained strawberry juice, powdered sugar and strawberry Moscato and blend until smooth.
  • Put in the fridge to chill for 30 minutes to an hour.
  • Evenly distribute the strawberry mixture among four champagne flutes and top each with 1/2 cup of champagne or prosecco.
  • Garnish with a strawberry, serve and enjoy!

And finally we have Sparkling Raspberry Lemonade. This one is non-alcoholic but you can add champagne to it.

What you need:

  • 6 medium lemons
  • 3/4 cups of sugar, divided
  • 2 cups of thawed frozen raspberries
  • 2 liters of Sprite

What you do:

  • Add 1/4 cup of sugar to 1 cup of raspberries and gently mash. Let sit for 10 minutes.
  • Juice all of the lemons and pour through a strainer. Add that to a pitcher with the remaining sugar.
  • Add the Sprite and stir to combine. Put in the fridge to chill until you’re ready to serve.
  • Garnish with the remaining frozen raspberries, if you want to add the champagne now would be the time to do it.
  • Serve and enjoy!

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys make any of these drinks let me know how they turn out.

Until next time, enjoy your drinks and have a happy Mother’s Day :).
