How to Celebrate Mother's Day This Year

The Holiday

In times like this, we need a hero. The closest thing to a hero we have in our lives? Mothers. Our mothers have been there for us since day one, and that's why it's so important to celebrate their day, no matter what is going on. Today's holiday is, of course, Mother's Day!


The Drink

How would you describe a holiday for moms in May? The bees knees! Today's drink is sweet with a kick, so sit back, enjoy the sights and sounds of Spring, and make yourself the bee's knees!



2 ounces gin

3/4 ounces fresh lemon juice

1/2 ounces honey syrup*

Garnish: lemon twist



Add all ingredients into a shaker with ice and shake.

Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

Garnish with a lemon twist.

Honey syrup: Add 1/2 cup honey and 1/2 cup water to a small saucepan over medium heat. (You can experiment and decide how much of a honey flavor you want in your syrup. The more honey you use, the thicker the syrup and stronger in flavor it will be.) Stir until blended. Strain into a jar and seal tightly with a lid. Will keep for 1 month in the refrigerator.



The Glass


The perfect glass for the bees knees is the My Drinking Garden Copa Glass! Covered in bees and flowers, this is the right way to get into the spring spirit.
