The Lilac Bloom

This Sunday is all about celebrating Mothers. We love them because they do so much for us without expecting anything in return. They are always there when we need them the most, know exactly what to say, and are pretty much always right (though we don’t admit that very often.)  

So, this Mother’s Day, let Mom sit back and mix her a drink. We suggest the Lilac Bloom from our book Shake. This floral recipe doesn’t include alcohol, but if Mom wants to throw a shot of vodka in there, we won't tell anyone.

Happy Mother’s Day from the Mason Shaker Team!
