A greeting card and some fancy flowers are nice, but maybe it’s the year to get your favorite leading lady what she really wants for Mother’s Day: the secret to youth.
Or, at the very least, a refreshing beverage.
In the spirit of the holiday, here’s a cocktail for the fun forever-young mom from Russian Standard Vodka. (Plus, Mom isn’t the only one who could enjoy this swill – it’s a favorite brand of Peter Facinelli, Zachary Quinto and Shenae Grimes.)
Besides, nothing makes wrinkles less noticeable than a strong drink.
Russian Standard Vodka’s Fountain of Youth
1.7 oz. of Russian Standard Vodka
2 oz. pomegranate juice (fresh-squeezed where available)
.7 oz. freshly sliced ginger
Shake all ingredients vigorously with ice, double strain and pour into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a piece of ginger, and pass a mint leaf around the glass rim.
