Sure, you could bring mom a dozen tulips, or surprise her with a nice box of fudge, but what about a perfectly crafted cocktail? Pick the one she'll love most, grab some good cheese and crackers (and okay, maybe flowers, too), and her Mother's Day just got a whole lot better. When it's time to go, leave her with the cocktail ingredients so she can whip them up again, and don't forget to clink to her -- she is, after all, the best mom in the world.
