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.
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!
- 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.
