Get in my belly: Delightful Mother's Day Cocktail!

We served these fun and tasty cocktails for Easter. I'm not normally a "cocktail" girl, but we had some Lillet in the freezer and these looked so pretty. I found this recipe in the April issue of Martha Stewart.

Lillet Rose, a fortified-wine blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Muscatel, has the aroma of flowers and ripe berries -- perfect for a springtime aperitif. Garnishing the drinks with edible flowers is a lovely touch.

Ingredients - serves 6

12 ounces Lillet Rose
12 ounces Ruby Red grapefruit juice
6 ounces gin
6 edible flower blossoms (optional; chefs-garden.com)


Combine 6 ounces Lillet, 6 ounces grapefruit juice, 3 ounces gin, and ice in a cocktail shaker. Shake until well chilled. Strain and divide cocktail among 3 stemmed cocktail glasses, such as Champagne coupes. Repeat.

Garnish with flowers. Serve immediately.
