She’s carried you for nine months, fed you, clothed you, got you to school on time and brought you up to be the awesome person you are today. It’s about time the real heroes of society got the recognition and reward they deserve.
That’s where we come in… at Drinkly we have hundreds of quality brands; wines, artisan spirits, luxury local ice-creams and chocolate bars – all delicious presents that can be delivered (beautifully gift wrapped) in less than 1 hour. That brings us back to the point about forgetting. When we can put your mum’s favourite G & T or glass of fizz in her hands in under 60 minutes – really you have NO EXCUSE. Even if you have that *oh sh#t!* moment at 8pm on Sunday, we’ve still got you covered!!
For all that they do for us, mums deserve to be treated to a worldwide tour. But, let’s be honest, no matter how much we want to whizz them away to a spa resort on the other side of the world, our bank accounts are just not on-board. BUT, a wine tour of the world? Now that’s an idea…
Take mum to Australia with a bottle of Peculiar Mr Pats, a gorgeous Merlot from the land down under. Show her Argentina with some marvellous Malbec’s, perhaps the Tesoro De Los Andes from the Mendoza region of the South American destination. Or why not give her a taste of Paris with a chilled bottle of Moët & Chandon champagne.
If mum’s got more of a sweet tooth, we can’t recommend Mozart Gold enough. This luxuriously creamy Austrian milk chocolate liqueur is liquid perfection. Your biggest challenge here will be convincing your mum to share! That goes for local Edinburgh Coco Chocolatier’s bars too… have you seen their wrapping paper? They’re almost too pretty to open… almost.
As it’s officially Spring and, thankfully, Summer is on the horizon; we say it’s time for Rosé (*All mothers cheer*). Why not kick-start this year’s drink pink movement with our Le Dolci Colline Rose Spumante, a Prosecco Rose accentuated with red berry flavours. Or there’s the Cape Heights Rosé – talk about a gorgeous South African that she’s bound to love! Of-course mums doing low and no alcohol or having to get behind the wheel needn’t miss out… cue the alcohol free Eisberg Rosé.
With Spring & Summer come the flowers; and yeah we’re totally jumping on the ‘give mum flowers for Mother’s Day’ band wagon. But the kind that die within 7 days? No thank you… we’re talking floral botanicals! At Drinkly we have an abundance of glorious Scottish gins full of lavender, rose petals, violet, you name it. Why not treat mum to a Rock Rose, Edinburgh Gin or the aptly named Botanist laden with 22 botanicals. Whitley Neil’s Rhubarb and Ginger gin is hugely popular too!
No matter what gin you go for, make sure you don’t forget to pick up some tonic. Your mum (probably) doesn’t want to start taking shots with her precious sons and daughters on Mother’s Day, so please, whether it’s Cushiedoos, Lamb & Watt or Fevertree, just don’t forget.
Speaking of forgetting, MOTHER’S DAY IS ON SUNDAY THE 31stOF MARCH!! DON’T FORGET!
We’re open till 10pm every day to make sure mum gets the gorgeous gift she deserves. Send her favourite bottle right to her front door in central Edinburgh, or if she lives in Glasgow click here.
