fruit cobbler cocktailWhat would Mother's Day brunch be without sparkly pink cocktails? (Boring and sad, that's what.)

I'm not talking about your everyday, run-of-the mill Cosmo, either -- this Mother's Day, why not mix it up a little?

Pomegranate liqueur, edible flowers ... these fun and fizzy concoctions are guaranteed to put Mom in a great mood.

You know, the kind of mood that makes her forget about those 364 other days of the year when nobody appreciates anything and a "thank-you" would be nice and ... here Mom, have another cocktail!
