In order to make this red wine gin sour cocktail, you’ll need to make your own simple syrup first, since it’s a major ingredient, and then follow a multi-step process. This drink is, admittedly, a bit labor-intensive, but it’s so pretty and worth the work. Hummingbird High

For the mom who loves a classic drink, you can’t go wrong with a Lemon Drop Martini. You’ll need some fresh-squeezed lemon juice, simple syrup, Limoncello, vodka, and water. Oh, and don’t forget about the sugar-rimmed glass — it’s essential. Brown Sugar Mama

If mom loves rosé, then make her a batch of this summer rosé sangria. The recipe is somewhat labor-intensive, since you’ll need to make some homemade strawberry syrup, but after just one sip, mom will be so happy you put in the work, because it tastes so good. A Cozy Kitchen
This salty dog cocktail is a delightful blend of bittersweet and salt. The drink is a mix of vodka (or gin) and fresh grapefruit juice, and the glass is garnished with a grapefruit wedge and a lime slice. The kicker, though, is the salt-covered rim. Averie Cooks
A traditional margarita is always delicious, but switch things up this Mother’s Day with a passion fruit margarita instead. Most of the recipe is unchanged — tequila, triple sec, lime juice — but the addition of passion fruit syrup totally changes the flavor.A Cookie Named Desire
Another great classic cocktail with a twist? The Kombucha Moscow Mule. To make it, you’ll need ginger kombucha, vodka, fresh lime juice, fresh pineapple juice, and molasses. Serve it up in mom’s favorite cocktail glass, and let her kick back and enjoy. A Cookie Named Desire
