Mother’s Day is coming up. That’s one of the few days of the year where it seems that everyone, everywhere has brunch with their mom. My family is no different. Sometimes we have brunch at home, and sometimes we go out. No matter where you’re eating with mom, though, one thing is certain. Everyone deserves a really great cocktail.
These cocktails are perfect for Mother’s Day, brunch, or even an engagement party. They’re not only delicious, but really pretty, too.

- 2 Parts Aperol
- 1 Dash Soda

Add ice and a slice of orange, pour in the Prosecco, the Aperol and add a dash of soda. This avoids the Aperol settling at the bottom
