Mother’s Day Cocktails

Food & Drink

Are you looking for a way to make Mum’s day this coming Mother’s day? Well this might just be the post for you! As a busy Mum of three I rarely get to enjoy a nice cocktail so having them made for me on Mother’s day would be such a lovely treat as I do enjoy a cocktail or two ๐Ÿ˜‰ The lovely people at Tanqueray sent me some of their cocktail recipes and a bottle of their oh so lovely gin so I could have a go at making some myself.

I love a nice glass of fizz so thisย Tanqueray Raspberry and Lavender fizz is just perfect for me, it being served in my very own I love you Mum Champagne fluteย makes it all that extra special ๐Ÿ™‚ I didn’t have a rose petal to decorate it so I put a few raspberries on top, they were delicious after they’d been soaking.

How awesome is this Mum It’s Martini Time glass, just perfect for theย Tanqueray Clover Club cocktail which was just delicious! I had such fun making these cocktails and may have got a little tipsy whilst making them yesterday lunch time ๐Ÿ˜‰

If cocktails aren’t your Mum’s thing then how about a bottle of this Echo Falls Limited Edition Fusion with Rose… A delicious fusion, blended with the natural flavour of roses, itโ€™s a sophisticated sweet-treat with a floral twist. It is absolutely gorgeous if you love a sweet wine and really does taste of roses!

It would be perfect served up in this Mum It’s Wine O’Clock glass… every Mum needs one of these!

    The Clover Club cocktail is so pretty. I’m guessing it would also be perfect for a hot summer’s evening in the garden?!
