We have just one week left until Mother’s Day! And Hendrick’s Gin have put put together five gorgeously decadent cocktails to treat your mama bear to. I myself have made two of these, and trust me, they are super easy and oh-so worth it!
Celebrate Mothering Sunday on the 14th May with these unusual, but most certainly delicious, cocktails courtesy of Hendrick’s Gin – a most unusual gin, infused with rose and cucumber, to the delight of your most beloved mum.
Concocting one of these unusual cocktails for the delight of your maternal parental unit is an appropriately cordial and respectful gesture of appreciation; yet one that will undoubtedly promote you as her favoured child.
To fill the day with extra delight, why not surprise mother dearest with the Hendrick’s Gin Atomiser gift set. This is the ultimate apparatus for cocktail consumption – it is a diminutive receptacle that transforms liquid into a mist of mesmerising vapour that can be used to sprits on the top of your tipple, or even line the glass before pouring your drink.
This multifarious miniature marvel can be employed for a host of undertakings including distributing effective cooling and hydration for roses and cucumbers when filled with water.
Fill it with the taste that tickles your mummy’s fancy, and take your cocktail experience to levels of wondrous proportions.
