Citrus flavors are a spring classic, and incorporating them into your Mother’s Day drinks is a no-brainer.

Hendricks, fresh limes, and real simple syrup please!) Shake it up in our Shaker Pint, then serve either neat or on the rocks in BrüMate’s Rocks lowball tumbler

The mint julep was made popular by the Kentucky Derby, and this refreshing drink can add the perfect touch of springtime Southern charm any Mother’s Day. Muddled mint, whiskey or bourbon, and a bit of sugar come together deliciously. This drink is best enjoyed with BrüMate’s Highball glass, equipped with anti-dilution technology.

This one is for the sweet, fun loving mom, and pairs amazingly with curries, coconut rice, or seafood. Fizzy and fresh with cherry-forward flavor and hints of ginger, the cherry moscow mule is an excellent variation on the classic mule. A mule should always be served in a mug, and luckily BrüMate’s Toddy has you covered with a double threaded rim and a spill-proof lid. Mother’s Day dinner has never been more delicious!

6. Coco Chanel




Celebrating Mother’s Day is an excellent occasion to try out this drink, inspired by one of the most influential women of the twentieth century! Though Coco Chanel was never a mother herself, this floral-infused drink brings the bright and fun spirit of Mother’s Day. There are several variations of the Coco Chanel, but coconut vodka and St. Germain are two of the most classic ingredients. BrüMate’s MargTini Tumbler is the perfect way to keep your sweet drink ice cold and enjoyable throughout your Mother’s Day festivities.

7. French 75




We’ve said it before, and we’ll say again: Citrus is amazing in the springtime! A touch of lemon is the perfect way to infuse the flavor of Mother’s Day into your drink menu. The French 75, a blend of gin, champagne, and lemon juice, is the perfect touch of citrus for your mother’s special day. As the name suggests, the cocktail originated in Paris, France around World War I and has been a staple for gatherings ever since. The champagne adds a new layer of bubbly lightness to the drink, highlighting the bright flavors of the lemon and gin components. Keep your French 75 nice and bubbly with BrüMate’s Champagne Flute, guaranteed to keep 5x the bubbles every time.

8. Frosé




On an especially warm Mother’s Day, a blended icy beverage is the perfect antidote to a hot day. Look no further than the frosé: the perfect blend of wine, fruity flavor, and an ice cold finish. The frosé is a take on the popular slushy with a bit more of an adult twist. Frozen rosé is the base of the drink (no surprises there!), mixed with sugar, lemon juice, and fresh fruit. Of course, every frosé needs the perfect beverage container, and BrüMate’s Uncork’d XL insulated wine tumbler will keep your drink frozen all day long.

9. Gin Daisy




When it comes to drinks for Mother’s Day, few drinks are as classic as the gin daisy. The gin daisy has been a bartender’s best friend since at least the 1930s, giving the drink a bit of classic flair. The gin daisy has many of the common attributes we look for in the perfect Mother’s Day drink: it’s fresh, it’s fruity, and perfectly suited for some family time in the spring. The drink has a gin base and features any number of fresh ingredients from grenadine to lemon juice to a spring of fresh mint. BrüMate’s 12 oz Highball is the perfect compliment, keeping your fruit flavors fresh and cool.

10. Chocolate Irish Coffee




At the end of a long day celebrating your mother, a sweet coffee treat to end off the day is certainly in order. If a rich, velvety, chocolate beverage is up your alley, a chocolate Irish coffee is the way to go. Since the drink is most commonly served warm, BrüMate’s Toddy is the best choice. For a chocolate Irish coffee, you’ll need a simple combination of Irish whisky, hot coffee, cocoa powder and, if your mom prefers, a touch of whipped cream at the top can be the perfect finishing touch.
