Are you still struggling to find the right gift for mom on her special day? Struggle no more my friends, I am here to save the day for you. First off I hope that you did not forget that mother’s day is this Sunday 05/09/ 2021. However, if this is the case, you don’t have to worry, you can still get something nice for mom, and have it delivered to her in about one hour, depending on where you live. All you have to do, is remember what mom likes to drink, and pick out your last minute gifts for mother’s day. Sit back and relax, and let us take care of the work for you. How does that sound to you? This Sunday is looking like it is going to be a beautiful day, perfect for sitting in the back yard for a cocktail.
I do not know anyone who does not enjoy a good glass of wine, every once in a while, do you? I can bet that your mother likes a glass of wine, either with a meal, or when in good company.
Does she like a red wine, or perhaps mom would like a white wine? The only person who would know that is you. My wife likes a white muscato, a very sweet white wine. I already have two bottles chilling in the fridge for her, plus one bottle of red muscato. It is to bad that I never got the chance to find out what my mother’s favorite wine was, before she passed away.
If you don’t know what type of wine your mother likes to drink, the best advice I can give you is, pick up a bottle of each. Besides, you know that one bottle of wine is never enough, especially when there is more then one person drinking.
My choice for a red wine is Woodbridge Merlot by Robert Mondavi
My choice for a white wine is Risata Moscato d’Asti by the way this is the brand that I buy for my wife all the time, and she loves it. I am more of the red wine drinker, and I mostly drink a Merlot. Merlot has a low tanning level, not as drying to the mouth. The fewer tannins in a wine the less of the drying effect you will have, and vice versa with a wine that has a high tannin level. You will have a more drying effect. There is no drying effect with a muscato, just so you know.
This make a great last minute gift for mothers day, this one will make mom feel extra special. She will think that you spent a fortune on this beverage. You may know sparkling wine by its other name, champagne. Used to celebrate all kinds of occasions. Mother’s day should be no exception.
Mom always deserves to be celebrated, all year round. So, why not celebrate with some champagne? It is’nt as expensive as you think. You do not have to spend an arm and a leg in order to have a great time with someone that you love, and loves you with all her heart.
There are some inexpensive champagnes as well as some very pricey ones. Since I myself is always on a tight budget, I usually get one of the less expensive bottles of champagne.
The less expensive one of my choice is Champagne Nicolas Feuillate Brut
For the more expensive one, my choice is Veuve Clicquot Brut Yellow Label again these are just suggestions, there are plenty of other champagnes to try. I am just looking out for your wallet or purse. You can however, get other champagnes, that have a high price tag on them. For me, I will stick with a plain old wine any day of the week, and save the champagne for New Years Eve.
I don’t know your mother, so I don’t know if she likes to sip on a little whiskey now and then. Whiskey makes a great last minute gift for mother’s day, especially for the mothers who like a mellow sipping cocktail. Or, maybe she likes to mix it a bit. Add a little whiskey into a rocks glass, add some ice, and top off with some cola, or club soda.
You can find all kinds of recipes for mixing whiskey in another article on this site. I am always on the look out for cocktail recipes, hopefully you can find a cocktail that peaks your interest. The easiest way to mix whiskey is to simply follow the above recipe.
There are many whiskies on the market today, and can become confusing to figure out. This one you will have to experiment with in order to find the one that you like the best. I am going to give you my choice of whiskey that I like to drink. Hopefully this help you in your decision, and it will most likely surprise you.
My choice for a whiskey is, Crown Royal Deluxe Blended Canadian Whiskey
Now, if you have been here before you know that I love Bourbon. For some reason when everyone in my high-school was drinking Jack Daniel’s, I started drinking Jim Beam. I found Bourbon to be smoother than Jack Daniel’s. Plus no one wanted to drink Jim Beam, so that left me being the only one to drink it, and meant that I didn’t have to share my alcohol with anyone.
However if one of the girls wanted a smoother drink, of course I would share some with them. All of those girls are now mothers, and probably still prefer a smoother cocktail. Most of the women that I know like their drinks to be on the smoother and sweeter side of the spectrum.
Even with today being mothers day, you still have time to get mom something delivered her favorite alcohol. Most place that you live can have any of these liquors delivered in about one hour. So, don’t worry you still have time. My choice for Bourbon is Buffalo Trace
Mom has loved you since the day you were conceived. Before she ever met you, she carried you inside her for 9 months. When you finally arrived and got place in her arms, you brought a tear to her eyes. Ever since that day everything that she has done her life, has been all for you. So, on this day, her day and every day that you still have her in your life, you should celebrate her. And you know that mom will love a great cocktail to share with you.
Remember to drink responsibly and never drink and drive. The life you save may very well be your own. Sincerely; John D. Have a blessed day my friends.
