"No Mother’s Day brunch is complete without a champagne cocktail! This blackberry champagne cocktail is beautiful and brightly colored, with fresh blackberries lending a purple hue. No matter what you serve, this refreshing cocktail will look great next to it."
¾ oz blackberry simple syrup*
1-1.5 oz gin (depending on how strong Mom likes her drinks)
Fresh blackberries for garnish
Put two blackberries in a champagne flute. Pour in blackberry simple syrup and gin, then carefully top off with sparkling wine.
*Blackberry Simple Syrup
1 cup water
1 cup sugar
1 basket of blackberries
Bring all ingredients to a boil. Strain into a container, pressing the blackberries to push juice through the stainer.

I read this article a couple of weeks ago on Southern Eclectic's blog. She didn't write it, but discovered it as well. It's a great reflection, especially around Mother's Day.

There’s this crazy phenomenon going on right now. Good, devoted mothers get on Pinterest . . . and blogs . . . and Facebook . . . and Twitter . . . and then they flip through parenting magazines and TV channels (full of advertisements and media hype) . . . and they’re convinced they’re not enough.
While perusing Southern Eclectic's line, Sheridan French (her name), I found this Vivienne Swim Tunic, and think I need it in my swim wardrobe, ASAP! I end up wearing tunics most of the summer, so I'm feeling very tempted...
Tomorrow, I'll be posting last minute gift ideas for Mom!
