Mother’s Day is this weekend and many are wondering if they should take their mothers and mother figures out for a Sunday brunch or simply purchase a gift. Rather than doing these traditional activities on this special day, treat your beloved to a fancy cocktail hour with some Mother’s Day lovely libations.

Sip Like a Royal

Sip like a royal by whipping up The Duchess (seen in the photo at the top of this post) by master Mixologist David Pedro. Pedro is based out of Kilkea Castle, located in a luxury hotel resort and golf club in County Kildare, Ireland, where he decided to create a magical drink that is tasty, light, and refreshing to pay homage to the hard work mothers put in each and every single day and hour.

The Duchess

1 oz Pink Gin
1 oz Bacardi White Rum
.5 oz Elderflower Liqueur
2.5 oz FeverTree Tonic
.5 oz lime juice
wedge of lime
fresh rosemary

Fill your gin glass with ice then measure the gin and rum into the glass. Stir the content in the glass for 15 seconds. Afterwards add elderflower syrup and lime juice and stir for 20 seconds. Then add a second scoop of ice and stir once again for ten seconds. Top it up with tonic and garnish with a wedge of lime and rosemary.
