Mother's Day: A love-ly cocktail to share
Mother's Day is a great time to come together and pay a loving tribute to our moms. What better way to mark this special day than a festive cocktail, served in a pretty pitcher? Mixologist Rose Simard suggests the aptly named... Apricot Kiss!
In order to spend more time with mom (and less time in the kitchen), I recommend to prepare the cocktails ahead of time, then serving them in a pretty pitcher. Depending on the glassware, it makes 4 to 5 servings. Make every sip count when you reach for tropical, our set of 4 old-fashioned glasses.
With a chilled pitcher on the table, loved ones by your side and a delicious cocktail to share, this Mother's Day can only be memorable.
- 180 ml (6 oz) tequila
- 60 ml (2 oz) lime juice
- 60 ml (2 oz) orgeat syrup (in natural product stores and some specialty groceries)
- 250 ml (8 oz) apricot nectar
- orange-blossom water (optional)
- sage leaves (to garnish)
You'll need a blender, a jigger, a pitcher, short glasses, and ice.
Step 1In a blender, combine tequila, lime juice, orgeat syrup and apricot nectar.
Step 2Add a dozen ice cubes and blend to a granular, slushy texture.
Step 3Transfer mix to a pitcher.
Step 4Optional: Lightly coat glasses with a few drops of orange-blossom water and pour out excess.
Step 5Pour cocktail into glasses and garnish with a sage leaf.
And Cheers to all the moms!
