Floral Cocktails for Mother’s Day | South Wake Raleigh Moms


Whether you’re hosting a Mother’s Day brunch this year, or simply want to toast to yourself, we can’t think of a better cocktail to do it with than these Mother’s Day Floral Cocktails from The Local Moms Network contributor Domestikated Life. Elderflower liquor is combined with grapefruit vodka, soda and a little bit of citrus. “I love this particular cocktail for the pretty blush-pink color, tart grapefruit flavor, and touch of floral notes from the elderflower liquor—it’s a winner for a spring sip!” says blogger Kate van Geldern Bowler. “I’ll be plucking a few edible flowers or a sprig of rosemary from our new plants to make a Mother’s Day cocktail for sure. For Mother’s Day this year we have plans to hit up the local garden center and get plants for my first-ever garden—to be honest, I’m mostly planting herbs for cocktail garnishes.”

Cheers to Mother’s Day and cheers to you!
