Fruit Basket for Mother's Day - Mom Gin

Mom Gin is certainly a well-known brand on this blog. It was probably one of the very first bottles I ever received for my blog, to create a cocktail for Mother’s Day. This year, a Dutch press agency asked if I could do that again. They send us a bottle and asked to create a new cocktail for this year’s Mother’s Day. Yes, this Sunday is Mother’s Day, so hurry up if you forgot about it 😉 – Posting this a few days earlier so you still have time to get the ingredients for this delicious drink !!!

Mom Gin is owned by Gonzalez Byass and is distilled in the UK. It’s a 4x distilled premium gin with red berries and exotic botanicals. I would not label it as a sweet gin, the result is a very aromatic and fruity spirit. In the nose lots of red berries, strawberries, raspberries, lemon and coriander. The same fruity notes come back in the mouth, together with some cherry and liquorice. I want to build further on those fruity notes and really go all the way with fruity flavors.

My mom passed away many years ago, but I’ll make this drink for my wife, who’s also a fantastic mother to our daughter. 

Fruit Basket

60 ml Mom Gin
40 ml Pineapple juice
20 ml Orange juice
20 ml Lime Juice 
5 ml Mango puree

Add everything to a shaker with lots of ice. Shake hard for 15 seconds, strain in a coppa glass with fresh ice. Serve with strawberries and a kiss 😉 #HappyMothersDay 

I’m always a fan of keeping things simple. In some supermarkets you can find a mixed juice with pineapple, orange and mango that’s pretty close to the right measures for this drink. If you buy a pack of those, you only have to add Gin and lime juice.
