Mother's Day Brunch: 4 Fruity & Flowery Cocktails Mom Will Adore

Posted by Jacqueline Burt on May 12, 2012 at 10:05 AM

fruit cobbler cocktailWhat would Mother's Day brunch be without sparkly pink cocktails? (Boring and sad, that's what.)

I'm not talking about your everyday, run-of-the mill Cosmo, either -- this Mother's Day, why not mix it up a little?

Pomegranate liqueur, edible flowers ... these fun and fizzy concoctions are guaranteed to put Mom in a great mood.

You know, the kind of mood that makes her forget about those 364 other days of the year when nobody appreciates anything and a "thank-you" would be nice and ... here Mom, have another cocktail!

Champagne Dreams

2 oz. PAMA Pomegranate 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.


Fruit Cobbler

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.

Lillet Rose Spring Cocktail

12 ounces Lillet Rose
12 ounces Ruby Red grapefruit juice
6 ounces gin
6 edible flower blossoms (optional)

Combine 6 ounces Lillet, 6 ounces grapefruit juice, 3 ounces gin, and ice in a cocktail shaker. Shake until well chilled. Strain and divide cocktail among 3 stemmed cocktail glasses, such as Champagne coupes. Repeat. Garnish with flowers. Serve immediately.

Pear and Cranberry Bellini

1 cup pear nectar
1 cup cranberry juice cocktail
1 bottle Prosecco or other dry sparkling white wine

In a small pitcher or large liquid measuring cup, combine pear nectar and cranberry juice cocktail. Pour 1/4 cup juice mixture into each of eight champagne glasses. Dividing evenly, top with Prosecco or other dry sparkling white wine.

What's your favorite brunch cocktail?

Wish my mom would imbibe and enjoy one!  It's another one of her religious things that she picked up when she married my stepdad.  That pomegranite one sounds really delish for a brunch!
