The mad rush for gifts and the like for Mother’s Day should mostly be behind some of us, and shame on you if you haven’t handled that business (just kidding). If the mother in your life is into sipping on her special day, then we have just the Mother’s Day cocktail and drinks roundup for you.

Breaking the wall a bit, I didn’t grow up in a household of people who enjoyed drinking. My mother has the equivalent of four wine coolers per year around her birthday even though she loves how cocktails look. So while I won’t be able to whip up one of the beauties I have listed below, I do hope one day she’ll allow me to craft something in her honor.

Back to the roundup, we’ve got some brands here that have been featured in past roundups and some mighty impressive cocktails exist in this list. We also have some new entries to the Spirit.Ed pages and we hope that you find a new favorite.

Mother’s Day is a day to celebrate the ones who bring life into the world or help nurture and support the lives of others. This goes for our sisters, aunts, cousins, and close family friends. Cheers to all the mothers in the world and enjoy your special day.

Check out the collection of cocktails and drinks below.


I will be updating this post until 6 PM EDT.
