Four Mother's Day Libations Fit For A Queen (Mixed Drink Recipes)

When Mimosas just no longer cut the mustard for your Mom, make sure you check out this list of libations built for a Queen (or King.) Mother’s Day is right around the corner so don’t be that guy or girl who plans to show their Mom some love at the last minute, resulting in a crappy gift and brunch at a packed restaurant. 

Show some class this year, by making a few cocktails to pre-game up before you take Mom somewhere she has never been to eat. Some people love flowers while others love getting liquored up and if your guest of honor sways towards the latter, well then let us help you out with some incredibly easy but amazingly elegant looking and tasting drink recipes. 

The Supreme Plate wishes to say “Happy Mother’s Day to all of the Moms found around the World.” Whether you raised your own or someone else’s children the World appreciates all that you real women have done for us over the years.

To my Mother, I couldn’t have gotten this far without you and hope that I am making ya proud.
