Delicious Drinks

Champagne is without doubt the perfect present to show Mum she’s special this Mother’s Day, adding a sense of occasion and glamour to your celebrations and toasts. Whether you’re holding a leisurely lunch, indulging in afternoon tea, or you simply want to give the gift of luxury, add some sparkle to mum’s special day with these two suggestions from Champagne Canard-Duchêne.

Balanced, fresh and elegant, Canard-Duchêne Authentic Réserve Brut is ideal for special occasions worth savouring. Aged for three years in the cellars, the Champagne is filled with subtle aromas of exotic fruits and jammy notes, making it the perfect aperitif. RRP: £26.99, available at Waitrose and

Canard-Duchêne has been making Champagne since 1868, in the heart of the Parc Naturel de la Montagne de Reims. The brand is deeply rooted in the vineyards and has tremendous respect for its environment. Canard-Duchêne is distributed in over 50 countries.

Morrisons have a fantastic selection of offers on to coincide with Mother’s Day. I almost always buy my wine and champagne from Morrisons as I find that they have the best selection and there is always a great deal to be snapped up on something I love. See the below image for my favourite Mother’s Day wine picks.


I absolutely adore the Morrisons Chenin Blanc and Cotes du Rhone. The Chenin Blanc is fresh, zesty and perfect for just about any meal you decide to cook for mum this Mother’s day! The Morrisons Cotes du Rhone is a fantastic red for the price, bursting with warm, fruity flavour and great to serve alongside a hearty meal. Get them in store or at

If you are looking for something a little bit different as a Mother’s Day tipple, then you could try Ballantine’s Brazil; a brand new spirit drink made with Scotch whisky selectively cask steeped with Brazilian lime peel.

The new spirit drink is the latest addition to the Ballantine’s portfolio, and represents an innovative fusion of the traditions of Scotland with the passion of Brazil. Featuring a delicate combination of stimulating citrus complemented perfectly with a smooth touch of vanilla, the taste is both smooth and consistent, with the sweet and creamy flavours of Scotch perfectly balancing the refreshing lime.

Ballantine’s has developed a delicious signature serve for Ballantine’s Brasil, the ‘Highland Samba’, which mixes Ballantine’s Brasil and lemonade, served over ice and topped with two freshly cut slices of lime.

More information can be found at, where customers can also view a series of tutorials on how they can ‘Mix it with Brasil’ to create their own favourite Ballantine’s Brasil cocktails.
