This recipe includes only three ingredients, so you can whip it up as an after-meal dessert drink or welcome drink in minutes!
Use mom’s favorite sorbet, 100-proof bourbon, and champagne or sparkling wine to create a drink that looks as complex as it tastes! The sorbet and bubbles mitigate the heaviness of the bourbon, creating a balanced flavor.
This cocktail is a multi-step cocktail, so while it is beautiful and tasty, prepare it ahead of time! Its alcohol base is gin, but the rose component to this Rose Collins comes from a rose simple syrup made from scratch.
Impress those at your Mother’s Day function by serving this refreshing and unique cocktail!
This pink vodka recipe makes enough for eight people, so it is the perfect addition to an outdoor Mother’s Day event! The prominent alcohol component in this drink is vodka. Serve with a watermelon garnish for the perfect addition to a hot summer day.
Keeping with the pink theme, this sorbet rose float is an excellent choice for a Mother’s Day event. This recipe is simple. All you need is rose, raspberry sorbet, and raspberries! Serve in a champagne flute or wine glass.
Another recipe with gin that I love is this minty cucumber gin spritz. Spritzes are the perfect drink for a summer or springtime party. It is a light cocktail with gin and a topping of prosecco, along with mint and cucumber. Serve in a champagne flute for the best effect!
To make a blushing mimosa, you need prosecco or champagne, pineapple juice, orange juice, and grenadine. It is a more tropical-tasting take on the traditional brunch drink, but it is still delicious nonetheless.
Add maraschino cherries to the bottom of your serving glass to amp up the reddish-orange color.
This twist on a mimosa is much easier to execute than you might think. Simply add champagne topped with raspberry lemonade and fresh raspberries. Sprinkle sugar on the raspberries before serving for a little extra sweetness!
Every mom should get the royal treatment on Mother’s Day, so why not serve her this cocktail? It is a gorgeous purple color and made with Empress 1908 gin. Add gin and white cranberry juice together, then add fruit garnishes like kiwi, blackberry, mint, and raspberry. Top with sparkling wine to finish it off!
Each cocktail I included on this list of Mother’s Day cocktails is perfect for a springtime soiree honoring the mothers in your life! They are unique in their way, beautiful, and complex, which makes them perfect for serving a wide range of guests.

I have always had a deep interest in the restaurant and bar industry. My restaurant experience began in 1997 at the age of 14 as a bus boy. By the time I turned 17 I was serving tables, and by 19 I was bartending/bar managing 6-7 nights a week.
In 2012, after a decade and a half of learning all facets of the industry, I opened my first restaurant/bar. In 2015, a second location followed, the latter being featured on The Food Network’s Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.
