It’s easy to add a little flair to Mom’s big day this weekend by whipping up a few crafty cocktails in the kitchen before mealtime. Since Mother’s Day is always a brunch-centric event, the following three recipes are well-suited to mid-afternoon sipping:
- 1 oz Frangelico
- 1 oz passion fruit juice
- Champagne or sparkling wine top
Combine Frangelico liqueur and passion fruit juice in a shaker, add ice and pour into a champagne flute. Top with sparkling wine or champagne.
(as another option to straight juice you can use “Cascal” which is a great tropical fermented soda available at Wholefoods nationwide)
Cityhouse in San Francisco’s scenic Parc 55 Hotel (55 Cyril Magnin Street) is serving up a specialty cocktail this weekend that is—as they say—sweet and a little bit nutty, just like Mom.
- 1 ¼ oz Frangelico
- 1 ¼ oz pomegranate liqueur
Stir over ice and pour over ice in rocks glass.
