Show Your Mom You Love Her With Some Mother's Day Cocktails

Show Mom all the ways to love her with food. But not just any ordinary meal – this one’s special, so make it memorable and give her a real treat: Breakfast in Bed. Next to the plate of perfectly browned French toast, offer her something celebratory – a glass of bubbly, something flowery or even fruity.

Here are three simple recipes that you can try for Mom’s special day:

Champagne Dreams – jazz up a boring Mimosa by adding other fruit liqueurs to make it even more delectable.

2 oz. PAMA Liqueur
2 oz. Champagne
¼ oz. orange liqueur
1 oz. fresh orange juice

Combine all ingredients except champagne in a shaker. Add ice and shake vigorously. Strain into a chilled flute and top with champagne.

Tulipe de Lis – this floral cocktail is a perfect complement to a vase of flowers on the breakfast tray.

2 oz. Denizen Rum
¾ oz. St Germain Elderflower Liqueur
¾ oz. fresh lime juice
½ tsp. granulated sugar

Place sugar and lime juice in a shaker and stir to dissolve sugar. Add remaining ingredients with ice and shake well. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass and garnish with a wedge of lime. For an added touch, garnish with a tulip petal.

Fruit Cobbler – Double up the occasion and welcome in warmer weather with this sparkling, fruity tipple.

1 oz. PAMA Liqueur
1 oz. Blueberry Vodka
1 oz. Lemon Juice
½ oz. Simple Syrup
Club Soda
Garnish: Blueberry, Kiwi and Strawberry Spear

Combine all ingredients except club soda in a shaker. Add ice and shake vigorously. Strain into a highball glass, fill glass with ice and top with soda. Garnish with a kiwi, strawberry and blueberry spear.
