Delectible drinks that would make the perfect Mother’s Day gift
Mother’s Day is fast approaching and with the lockdown in place, we may not be able to get the quality time with our mums that we really crave. However, we can offer the women in our lives a rather palatable alternative: a special drinks delivery that they don’t have to share. Though many of us can’t be there in person, we can be present, quite literally, in spirit. Here are some of the best bottles to indulge your mother on the 14th March and show that no one knows her better than you.

Whether they like to indulge in a dark roast in the morning or they have a sweet tooth, there’s something for every taste. Try the Tiramisu for a decadent chocolatey finish that pays homage to classic Italian dessert – add some foamed milk for the ultimate latte experience – or the Tia Maria, which incorporates the flavours of the Jamaican liqueur for an impressively boozy hit.

Beautifully bottled, it makes the ideal gift for any cocktail connoisseur mothers or important women in your life. Buy from Waitrose for £27.
Hattingley Valley English Sparkling Wines
Hattingley Valley’s Classic Reserve is pale gold in colour with delicate and fine long-lasting bubbles – the perfect celebratory drink to toast your mum. The beautifully complex bouquet combines aromas of green apples with creamy nougat, freshly baked brioche and delicate toasted notes from ageing in the bottle. On the palate, the complexity continues with notes of soft lemon sherbet, biscuit and a subtle oak character. Refreshing and perfectly balanced, with a delightfully long finish. Order online at £30 per bottle or £35 with a Union Jack gift box.
