Treat Mum to a homemade lunch for Mother's Day

April 24, 2015

All mum's love to be pampered and, even better, the chance not to cook. Invite her over for lunch and pull out all the stops!

We're loving this Honey-Berry Lemonade drink that can be made as is for a refreshing midday mocktail or spruced up with a dash of vodka or gin. Use a Mason Shaker for ease of making.

The Honey-Berry Lemonade

makes two drinks
 
6 shots spring water
2 shots lemon juice
1 shot honey
6 strawberries (plus 2 for garnish)
6 blueberries (plus 2 for garnish)
6 raspberries (plus 2 for garnish)
2 lemon rounds
 
1) Add lemon juice, honey and berries to the Mason Shaker.
2) Muddle the ingredients in the bottom of the Shaker until the berries are crushed. 
3) Add spring water to the Shaker. Add ice to above the liquid, and shake vigorously for 20 seconds.
4) Strain the cocktail into two tall glasses filled with ice, and garnish with remaining berries.

For lunch, how about a scrumptious Cherry and Tomato Tart with a seasonal salad on the side? Find the recipe at The Londoner.

 

 

And top if off with Strawberry Hi-Hat Cupcakes. Find the recipe at My Name is Yeh.

 

 

Mum will love you for it (as if she doesn't already).
