Nelson’s Victory: Try this lovely brunch cocktail on Mother’s Day

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there, old and new. You deserve a great day filled with kind gestures and sweet indulgences. And nothing spoils Mom quite like a brunch cocktail to get her special day off on the right foot.

Here's to Mom!

Cheers to Mom!

I was introduced to the Nelson’s Victory cocktail at Whitehall, which is a new restaurant in Bridgeland that serves British cuisine, re-imagined. Whitehall also serves gin cocktails, re-imagined, and I love this light and fizzy creation that combines gin with Luxardo Maraschino, Cointreau and orange juice, topped off with Prosecco. It’s like a Mimosa on steroids, which sounds about right for Mother’s Day!

Nelson’s Victory

  • 1 oz Plymouth Gin
  • 1/4 oz Luxardo Maraschino
  • 1/4 oz Cointreau
  • 1/2 oz orange juice
  • Top Prosecco

Method: Combine gin, Luxardo Maraschino, Cointreau and orange juice in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake, then strain into a coup glass and top with Prosecco.
