April 28, 2016 – Mother’s Day is Sunday May 8 so show the love with something different and creative for Mom this year. Mimosas, Champagne and pretty pink cocktails are always great but in 2016 Mom deserves the buzz of a trendy caffeinated cocktail. Mixologists have discovered Caliche Rum with its hints of vanilla and oak along with cold pressed coffee, espresso or good old drip coffee can be turned into coffee flavored drinks that go way beyond the enduring favorite of Irish Coffee.
We’ve found some fabulous recipes that will cause Mom to wonder where she went wrong bringing you up but she’ll want the recipe anyway!
