Mother's Day Mimosa

An elevated take on a classic cocktail - created by Beth Doell of 324 Speakeasy

If you search for "Mother's Day gift ideas," you'll find pages of candles, mugs, and personalized jewelry. While (almost) everyone loves a good candle, most moms just want to feel appreciated, have time with family, and have time by themselves to decompress. We spoke with Beth Doell of 324 Speakeasy in Downtown Manhattan, and she helped created this elevated take on a classic cocktail! Start your Mother's Day off right with this elevated take on the classic mimosa. For non-drinkers, we included modifications for an alcohol-free version.
