Happy Mother's Day, Fellow Skate Moms

I'm sharing my favorite cocktail recipe; French 75, named after the gun, which we may find we want sometimes at the rink.

  • 2 oz. Gin
  • 1 oz. simple syrup (or 2 tsp. superfine sugar)
  • 1 oz. lemon juice
  • Brut Champagne or other dry sparkling wine
  • Combine gin, sugar, and lemon juice in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously and strain into an iced highball or collins glass. Fill with Champagne. Garnish with a twist of lemon. 

    I thought about writing some fancy toast we could share, but when you start to tally all that a skate mom does, it gets unwieldy. So, from Tot to Freestyle Whatever, here's to you, Skate Mom.


    1. What, no Nutcracker? Coffee and walnut liqueurs, vodka, and peppermint schnapps.

    2. Aaaaand, the capcha was hiccoop

    3. HA! Hiccoop is now my Rink Toast.
