Pink potions; inspired by moms!

Sunday, this Sunday, is one of my favorite holiday.... Mother's day!

Such an exciting day which is devoted to those that birthed us, fed us, dressed us, anddddddd well nagged us to ☺ Despite some frustrating moments, moms are wonderful!

The typical American mother's Day celebration includes brunch and mimosas. Mimosas, which are a French cocktail of orange juice and champagne, are delicious, but maybe overplayed. So this Mother's Day, Night and Day Productions brings two scrumptious pink cocktails that compliment the taste-buds of moms, grandmas, and even dads......

Strawberry Martini

Serves 1

2-1/2 shots gin
1/2 shot strawberry liqueur (look for Volare Wild Strawberry Liqueur)
Fresh strawberry and lemon twist for garnish

1.Add ingredients to a mixing glass full of ice, stir until chilled. Strain into a chilled martini glass.
2.Garnish with a lemon twist and a strawberry.

Rose Petal Martini
Serves 1


1-1/2 shots gin
1/2 cup lychee juice
Rose petal for garnish


1.Shake ingredients and strain into a chilled martini glass.

So without further ado, my good people, break out your shaker, chilled glasses and get to pouring!!!!!!
