MAKE YOUR OWN COCKTAILS
If tea isn’t Mum’s drink of choice, a cocktail might win her heart. Sign up for a gin cocktail-making class hosted by Next Door Cocktail Bar and Prohibition Liquor Co. where she’ll learn how to stir and shake and balance flavours. The cocktail recipes have been designed using the distillery’s small batch limited release Mum’s Gin. Along with a grazing platter to nibble on throughout the class, guests will also receive a 200ml bottled cocktail and recipes to try at home.
GET FANCY WITH A HIGH TEA
Mother’s Day is synonymous with high teas. That’s why you should treat mum to a decadent afternoon at Adelaide Arcade’s Tea Cielo Tearoom + Patisserie. From 2pm, indulge in sweet and savory treats, local wine, and organic teas while The Very Modern Jazz Band performs classic jazz tunes. Get Mum’s ticket fast, as bookings are limited.
For a high tea with a twist, take Mum to Marion Hotel’s G & Tea for a delicious afternoon tea featuring hot and cold treats. And what’s a party without a refreshing gin spritz in the hotel’s Secret Garden?
