Is anything better than brunch?

It wouldn’t be Mother’s Day without the beloved tradition of brunch. Not for nothing do we love this fusion meal–sweet, savory, breakfast, lunch, anything and everything can show up on a brunch menu, so everyone is happy.

That being said… going out for brunch on Mother’s Day can end up feeling overrated and stressful. Did you make a reservation in advance? Did you check what’s on the restaurant’s limited occasion menu? Does mama even like the restaurant you managed to get a table at?

Now picture this: Mama lounges on the couch (or even better, in bed) in her jammies and fluffy robe as a loved one whips up a delicious brunch from home (I mean, who wants to get dressed to go out when you could eat brunch in your slippers?). Now we’re getting somewhere. What’s better than that?

Actually, there IS something more delicious! The same fabulous at-home, fuzzy-socks-wearing brunch paired with a delightful spring cocktail! Here at 21Seeds, we got you covered with several cocktails the moms out there will love, plus ideas for some tasty brunch treats to serve alongside them.

Why 21Seeds Infused Tequila makes the best cocktails ever

A quick crash course: 21Seeds Infused Tequila is a Blanco, or silver, tequila. The agave shines in Blanco tequila, and 21Seeds Infused tequila beautifully blends delicious fruit flavors with the agave to create uniquely sensorial drinks. Thanks to the clarity and natural light touch flavors of our infused tequila, there’s an almost endless variety of cocktails you can make, no matter what your taste in drinks might be.

Spicy Mama-rita

Mmmmmm, margaritas. Can’t go wrong with a classic, am I right? Well no… but you can go even MORE right on Mother’s Day. Treat yourself, or the mamas you know and love, to the oh-so-appropriately named 21Seeds Spicy Mama-rita– a cocktail truly dedicated to all the mamas in our lives.

The Mama-rita is as complex as any motherhood-esque role: sweet, spicy, light, complex, and as salty as you want to make it! The true beauty of this cocktail lies in the 21Seeds Cucumber Jalapeno tequila, which creates an amazing depth of flavor no matter how mild or spicy you like your cocktail.

When it comes to pairing brunch with a spicy beverage, think foods with a kick that will complement the heat of the drink. Eggs are a great vehicle for all kinds of spice–huevos rancheros, a Mexican breakfast staple consisting of fried eggs and salsa over tortillas, would be a perfect complement to your Spicy Mama-rita. If you’ve never tried shakshuka, an Israeli/Middle Eastern classic, we can’t recommend it enough–it’s just tomatoes simmered with spices topped with poached eggs, but YUM. Or, keep it simple by tossing a little seasoned salt and hot sauce on your scrambled eggs. (Can you tell that we love a zesty brunch option?)

21Seeds Sayulita Sunrise cocktail garnished with a pineapple slice, sitting in front of a pineapple and a bottle of 21Seeds Grapefruit Hibiscus Infused Tequila

Sayulita Sunrise

If something sweeter but with depth is what the mom in your life really craves, look no further than the Sayulita Sunrise. Featuring the 21Seeds Valencia Orange-infused tequila, this cocktail’s surprising blend of pineapple and pomegranate juice makes it far more exciting than your average fruity cocktail.

The bitter tannins in the pom juice give a slight richness to the light tanginess of the pineapple and orange; in that sense, thinking about a food pairing is almost like pairing wine. A charcuterie board would be a fantastic complement to the Sayulita Sunrise, or for a sweet option, try something incorporating chocolate–maybe pain au chocolat?

Bloody Maria

The Bloody Maria is a wicked riff on a classic Bloody Mary brunch cocktail, with the added kick of 21Seeds Cucumber Jalapeno tequila instead of boring old vodka. A Bloody Maria is fun for anyone who loves to customize their cocktails with brunch, because when it comes to the garnish, the world is your oyster!

No, literally, throw an oyster on a skewer if that’s your thing, or a big chunk of crispy bacon, or even a few cajun-spiced shrimp. The Bloody Maria is a robust drink that can handle some heavy pairings, and if your glass is big enough, your garnish can be your meal! Oh, and if you’re a fan of the classics, don’t forget your celery stick–then you can count a vegetable too!

Espresso Martini

This cocktail is as decadent as it sounds, and a dream for coffee lovers everywhere. Our standard recipe calls for one espresso shot, but hey, you do you! Add in chocolate bitters and coffee liqueur and mama will be ready to take on the world. With a drink this rich, our inclination is a lighter food pairing, like something fruit-based. But then again, what goes better with coffee than a donut?

21Seeds is an award-winning tequila infused with the juice of real fruit founded by 2 sisters and 1 girlfriend who were looking to make a flavored tequila that was as approachable as a glass of wine. They partnered with the most celebrated female-owned distillery in Jalisco, Mexico, to develop an ultra-smooth Blanco, infused with the ripest and juiciest fruits, resulting in an easy to use, perfectly balanced infused tequila.
