What Moms Really Want for Mother’s Day

Originally written by Holly Rust of hollydays_chicago

Recently I did a poll on Instagram asking moms what they really wanted for Mother’s Day and can you guess what most of the answers were? They all related to some form of self-care.

That’s right, moms want time off, time for themselves, some rest and relaxation, a spa day, a girl’s day/night, and my personal favorite – delish cocktails by the pool. I have to admit all of these options sound heavenly and while I can’t book a spa day for all my mama friends or make a pool appear (although that would be amazing!) – I can share a few of my favorite new cocktail recipes and tell you how you can get your own delivered straight to your door.

Let’s start with how you can get craft spirits delivered straight to your door. (Intended for a 21+ audience)Spirit Hub, the craft spirit authority, is an online retailer that partners with independent distilleries to bring you a collection of exceptional craft spirits direct to your door. They currently service Illinois, North Dakota, Nebraska, and New Hampshire. We’ve used them for a year now and love their selections.

Spirit Hub has an amazing selection of craft spirits, spirit sampler boxes, and even chic barware. Basically, they have everything you need to make Mom happy this Mother’s Day. When ordering use code: FREEGIFT and get a FREE set of Coupe Glasses on orders $125+.Shipping over $100 is free too!

My Mother’s Day gift set just arrived and it came withCrescendo Spirits Pompelmocello Grapefruit Liqueur. This spirit was fan-requested as there are not a lot of grapefruit varieties out there, and let me say, it delivers!

Here are just two grapefruit cocktail recipes I know you’ll love:

Here’s to all the mamas out there and don’t forget to put yourself first this Mother’s Day. Cheers!
