Skinny Cocktails for Mother's Day
Friday, I don’t think I’ve ever been happier to see your face. This week, as you may have picked up from yesterday’s post, was rough. Today isn’t proving to be much better. Lost an article I worked my butt off on yesterday and now have to re-do it. Thanks universe, I didn’t already have enough on my plate! However, I’m looking to the glass-half-full perspective. I’ve got date night tonight, spinning tomorrow, a great dinner with Chobani (and Gretchen!) tomorrow night. Things can only go up.
Now, I had planned on making some perfectly awesome Mother’s Day brunch thing today but, given the fact I ate a pizza last night, I think I’m going to skip that, get straight to work and just share some cocktails. I mean, moms work hard, don’t you think they deserve some drinks? But before we get there, gotta give a little shout out to the woman who brought my crazy ass into this world, mother-Avis!
Back in the rebellious days of her youth, I think. Here, let me dig up a more recent one.
True or false, that was her profile picture for over a year. If you voted true, you get a cookie. That picture about sums up my mother. She’s wild. She’s hilarious, fun loving, outgoing, adventurous and not to mention the best cook and baker I’ve ever met. I know I was NOT easy to raise (hello horrible 16 year old Claire, I’m talking to you!) so thanks for not kicking me out, sending me to boarding school or you know, killing me. Not to mention she’s just the best mom there is. I love you mom! Wish I could be there to celebrate!
Now, this post couldn’t be more appropriate for her since she also likes to enjoy the occasional libation. So cheers, ma, these cocktails are for you!
Spiked blackberry lemonade
Sparkling gin & juice [mix champagne, gin and juice together. Easy peasy!]
Malibu massage shooters
Grapefruit and gin jar
Plus, you can always go the old-fashioned route, some sparkling rosè! What mom doesn’t love a little bubbly?
Happy Mother’s Day to all of those amazing moms out there who put up with brats like me, everyday, without question or doubt. Y’all rock! Have a perfect day on Sunday!
