Is anything better than brunch?
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
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?)

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?

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!

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.
