Cocktails to try

A cocktail for every mum

There's a drink out there for everyone, so why not go the extra mile for Mum this Mother's Day and whip her up a divine drink that will suit her personality down to the ground

When was the last time you did something special for your mum, or your baby mumma? And we don't mean making her a cup of tea or presenting her with slightly burnt toast to crumble all through the bed on her special day.

We bet she'd appreciate something a bit edgier and much more creative.

Select which of the below recipes would best suit her tastes and wow her with a deceptively easy-to-make cocktail – preferably later in the day...

The Stylish Mum

This mum knows image isn't everything, but it will certainly take you a long way. The Raspberry Gin-Ger Lassi tastes amazing and makes a perfect shot for the 'Gram.

The Fun Mum

The life of the party, this mum enjoys her classics with an extra special twist. The Spiced Pina Colada will take her back to the party days of summer, and the spice will keep her warm on a chilly May day.

The Sweet Mum

This Mum has a real sweet tooth. Give her a break from the iso-baking and surprise her with a Baileys Toffee Apple dessert/cocktail. Just don't let the kids see this adults'-only concoction. It will look insanely tempting!

The Classic Mum

Straight up and to the point, this mum knows what she wants. The Sidecar is a classic for any serious cocktail drinker and has been a classic for a very long time – its origins date back to the legendary Harry's New York Bar in Paris during World War I. Impressive!

The No-Fuss Mum

More and more women are getting on the whisky train these days (as evidenced in the new Liquorland Toast - out in stores next week!). If your mum likes to keep things simple and enjoys a bit of peat with a twist, try making her the Apple Manhattan. Just add Sour Apple Schnapps and a splash of cranberry juice and you're away!
