Mother’s Day Cocktails 2017

Planning a Mother’s Day celebration? Brunch cocktails are the perfect way to toast your mom, and we’ve made it easy by rounding up a few of our favorites.

Arancia Julius
This Harvey Wallbanger riff was inspired by Cari Hah’s memories of drinking Orange Julius smoothies as a kid. Galliano and genever balance out the sweetness of orange and pineapple juices beautifully.

Branca Menta Mojito
Bitter lemon soda and minty Branca Menta make this mojito riff extra refreshing.

Cherry Bounce Sour
Cherry Bounce liqueur complements the vanilla and baking spice flavors of the high-proof bourbon in this frothy breakfast sipper.

Limoncello Sparkle
A bottle of bubbly livens up this sparkling cocktail, which gets an added dose of sweetness from a splash of limoncello.

Negroni Sbagliato
Sbagliato means “messed up” or “mistaken” in Italian, and while the Negroni Sbagliato is said to be the result of a busy bartender mistakenly using sparkling wine instead of gin in a Negroni, we think it turned out to be a pretty happy accident.

Orange Maria
Skip the traditional bloody mary option in favor of a little extra Vitamin C instead. Smoke and honey flavors from mezcal perfectly complement fresh carrot juice and ginger spice in this brunch hit.

Summer Rose
Fresh, floral and light, this rosy sipper gets its blush from a dose of fresh blueberries.

WC and Soda
Campari and citrus is a natural pairing, and this bubbling beauty finds its match with a simple kumquat purée and a splash of tarragon syrup.

Whaley’s #1
A sunny spritz with rum, St. Germain, grapefruit juice and rosé.
