Mother’s Day may have already come and gone, but when I first made this cocktail, all I could think about how well it would fit in with a family brunch. Sure, brunch has a bad rep for its rushed mediocre food, weak booze, and huge crowds, but I kind of like it. It’s everything awful about food in one meal, and I’d rather have that over a greasy bag of McDonald’s. Everyone has their shameful vices, and this is mine. However, I wouldn’t mind a little nudge in the right direction as far as alcohol goes. That’s how I came up with this. It’s not too sweet, there’s a ton of brightness to be found in in citrus vodka and the mint simple syrup, and the pamplemousse liqueur adds that dose of bitter that keeps masochists coming back for more. Whip up one cocktail for yourself, or be a little heavy handed and multiple this recipe by 4 to get a decent pitcher for the table.
