Mother's Day: A love-ly cocktail to share

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!

Inspired by Mediterranean culture, I had my heart set on a festive, sunny cocktail for Mother's Day. Apricot nectar, orgeat syrup and orange blossom water: these flavours will instantly transport your mom to a paradise island where no one ever grows old (we're allowed to dream...).

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.

Apricot Kiss
4-5 servings
  • 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 1
    In a blender, combine tequila, lime juice, orgeat syrup and apricot nectar.
  • Step 2
    Add a dozen ice cubes and blend to a granular, slushy texture.
  • Step 3
    Transfer mix to a pitcher.
