5 Cocktails Recipes For Mom
1. A Martini For Mum
Mum, mama, ma, nana. You know she loves Martinis – you've drank a few with her over the years. If she loves the classics, a Dry Martini will be her go-to. You'll need gin, vermouth, an olive and lemon twist as a garnish to mix one up for her. Whether it's her birthday, Mother's Day or just because why not treat her to a Martini Cocktail Making Kit? Opt for a set that features premium coupe glassware, a jigger for the perfect measure, a mixing glass, a strainer, and the recipe to create the ultimate martini. Or switch things up by creating a modern Martini using another spirit. There are lots to choose from, like the Vodka Martini (which also goes by Kangaroo and Vodkatini). It's the same cocktail recipe as a classic Martini, except vodka, replaces the gin. Or if you're looking for a pretty, Insta-friendly cocktail, a Blushing Lady will do the job. You'll need vodka, pomegranate liqueur, pink grapefruit juice, lemon wedge to garnish and sugar to rim the martini glass.
2. Mix Up A Margarita For Your Mum
Some cocktail recipes are so classic they don't need to change, like a classic Margarita. This tequila-based cocktail is an icon! It's loved by many thanks to its great taste and simplicity, as the only ingredients you need are tequila, triple sec and lime juice. If your mum figure is all about the Margarita, show her some love by treating her to a bottle of Don Julio Blanco. When used to whip up a margarita, it takes the cocktail from simple to sensational. If your mum is known for experimenting, you could try mixing up a Blood Orange Margarita. It's a standout cocktail that tastes as good as it looks. The blood orange juice and Campari transform this classic into a cocktail that's nothing short of amazing. She's going to love it. Let's toast to that!
3. Treat Mum To A Tanqueray & Tonic
Your mum is set in her ways, and you love her for that. She likes to sip on G&T at family get-togethers – it's the only drink she'll have. Celebrate her greatness by mixing up not just any G&T but a Tanqueray & Tonic. For an incomparable taste, Tanqueray London Dry is distilled with four classic gin botanicals: juniper, coriander, angelica, and sweet liquorice. It's tasty, unforgettable, and 'uniquely Tanqueray' – she'll notice the difference. Chances are this will now be her go-to G&T of choice. Just don't forget to add ice! And you could go one step further to help make her feel extra special by gifting her a Gin Gift Basket that includes both Gin and an exclusive Copa glass. The perfect gift for gin lovers and enthusiasts.
4. Make Mum A Cosmopolitan
Your mum is the best of the best. She raised you and loved you through thick and thin; you'll forever be grateful for that. Shower her with love and raise a toast to her with her favourite tipple – vodka! You can use it to make her a Cosmopolitan; a fruity tipple that's easy to mix up. As she also likes tequila cocktails with a citrusy or fruity taste, another option is a beautiful Tequila Sunrise; you'll need orange juice and grenadine to whip it up.
5. Share An Alcohol-Free Drink With Mum
To the world, she's your mum. To you, she's everything. Nothing beats spending quality time with her on special occasions or any day of the week. If she doesn't drink alcohol, look up some mocktail recipes, recreating tasty sips, for example - Non-Alcoholic Mojito and Tanqueray 0.0% & Tonic. These will make perfect birthday gifts for Mom! We smell the aroma of our drinks before it hits our lips, which strongly affects how we taste them, so remember to play around with your mocktail recipes with fruit and herb garnishes for extra taste points. Grapefruit and rosemary make a good duo, so you could also try making Mum a Grapefruit Collins. It looks, smells and tastes delicious! Add herbaceous garnish into the mix for an extra kick. Cheers!
We hope these ideas have sparked some creativity and helped you find the ideal birthday gift for your mom! Remember, the best presents are the ones that come from the heart and show your love and appreciation. Happy gifting and making your mom's day extra special!
