Since this week mums have a whole day dedicated to their tireless efforts to raise their children and please their family, here at Craft Gin Club we thought it would be fitting if they could relax on that day with cocktails that reflect their efforts? From tea-infused tipples to floral tributes, these gin cocktails are nearly as beautiful as that special woman in your life!
The Perfect Lady
Everyone’s mum is perfect. So mix her one of these drinks this Mother’s Day.
Shake all ingredients in a cocktail shaker on ice, strain into a martini glass.
Garnish with a slice of peach
15ml peach brandy
15ml lemon juice
1 egg white
Earl Grey Martini
Mix up her usual favourite hot beverage with this gorgeous, citrus and tea-infused martini.
Infuse the teabag in the gin for 10 minutes at room temperature.
Combine the tea-infused gin, lemon juice, sugar syrup and egg white in a cocktail shaker.
Dry-shake without any ice to emulsify the egg.
Open and add very cold ice; shake again until cold.
Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
1 Earl Grey teabag
25ml freshly squeezed lemon juice
25ml sugar syrup (1:1 sugar and water)
1 egg white (optional)
A floral twist on the usual gin cocktail, because what mother doesn’t want roses this Mothering Sunday?
Chill a coupette or Martini glass. Combine your gin, vermouth, raspberry cordial and two rosebuds in a mixing glass, add ice well above the level of the liquid and stir well for around 20 seconds. Using a strainer or dessert spoon to hold back the ice, pour the finished cocktail into your chilled glass. Garnish with the remaining rosebud to serve.
