Mother’s Day Cocktails

Hi everyone,

As Mother’s Day is this weekend, I thought this would be a good time to talk about some fun and delicious cocktails that are a perfect fit for the day. That being said, let’s get into it.

The first cocktail we have is Hibiscus Iced Tea Cooler. I’ve made this before, with and without alcohol, and they’re really good and quite refreshing. This recipes makes 6 drinks.

What You Need:

  • 5 cups of boiling water
  • 4 hibiscus tea bags
  • 2 cups of sparkling water
  • 4 ounces of orange Vodka
  • Ice
  • Fresh mint (for garnish)
  • Strawberries (for garnish)

What You Do:

  • The first thing you’re going to do is take a large heat safe pitcher and fill it with the tea bags and the boiling water. Then let the tea bags steep for about five minutes.
  • Once the tea bags have steeped, remove them from the pitcher and put it in the fridge so the tea can cool down.
  • After the tea is sufficiently cool and you’ve taken it out of the fridge, add the sparkling water and orange vodka. Mix well and add some ice.
  • Take the glasses you’re going to serve it in and add ice. Then pour the tea and garnish with fresh mint and a strawberry.
  • Serve and enjoy!

Next up we have Rosé Raspberry Sorbet Mimosas. I love a mimosa and Mother’s Day wouldn’t be complete without it. This makes 8-10 drinks.

What You Need:

  • 1 bottle of Rosé/sparkling wine
  • 1 pint of raspberry sorbet
  • Fresh herbs to garnish

What You Do:

  • Take your champagne flutes and fill them with one small scoop of raspberry sorbet.
  • Then fill your flute the rest of the way with your Rosé/sparkling wine and garnish with the fresh herbs.
  • Serve and enjoy!

The second to last cocktail we have is Grapefruit Mojitos. Mojitos are great for any occasion and this one is really fresh and bright. This recipes makes 2 drinks.

What You Need:

  • 2 large pink grapefruits
  • 2-3 limes
  • 2 tablespoons of honey
  • 3-4 ounces of White Rum
  • A handful of mint leaves
  • Sparkling water

What You Do:

  • The first thing you’re going to do is juice your grapefruits and limes. Filter that through a fine mesh strainer to make sure you don’t end up with any seeds or pulp.
  • Then stir the honey into the juices until it’s dissolved.
  • If you want to make both drinks at the same time, add ice, the rum, juice mixture and torn mint leaves into a shaker and shake well.
  • To make one drink at a time, add a handful of ice, half the rum, half of the juice mixture and a few torn mint leaves into a shaker and shake well.
  • Pour into your glass/glasses and give it a stir. Topping it off with the sparkling water.
  • Serve and enjoy!

And the last cocktail we have is a Rose Lemon Spritzer. This can be made with or without the alcohol and this recipes makes 1 drink.

What You Need:

  • 2 tablespoons of rose water
  • 2 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice
  • 1 1/2-2 ounces of Vodka
  • 1-2 tablespoons of honey to taste, you can also use agave
  • A few drops of pomegranate or blood orange juice
  • 3/4 cup of sparkling water
  • Fresh roses to garnish (optional)

What You Do:

  • Take your cocktail shaker and fill it with ice. Then add the rose water, fresh lemon juice, vodka, honey and pomegranate/blood orange juice. Shake until well combined.
  • Strain into your glass and top with the sparkling water. If using, garnish with the fresh roses.
  • Serve and enjoy!

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys make any of these drinks I’d love to know how they turn out. And if you have any Mother’s Day cocktail suggestions send them my way.

Until next time, have fun making drinks and I hope you all have a happy Mother’s Day :).
