A toast to mothers everywhere!


Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 11 – a day to honor mothers, who are most deserving of a toast for all that they do for their children.

The origin of Mother’s Day dates to the ancient Greeks and expanded across the globe. Its roots in the United States started nearly 150 years ago in 1868 in an effort to reunite families divided during the Civil War. The movement went through various incarnations – from an emphasis on health and peace to the distribution of carnations – and eventually culminated in a presidential proclamation by Woodrow Wilson in 1914 that designated the second Sunday of May as Mother’s Day.

Mother’s Day is a chance to cater to moms – and grandmothers, aunts, sisters and others who take on roles of motherhood. From going out to eat to family gatherings to bouquets of flowers, it is time to show mothers how much they are cherished.

Cherokee Distributing Company raises a toast to mothers and suggests these delectable beverages to cheer on their special day.

Moms deserve this day to relax, and Seagram’s Escapes Wild Berries, full of the taste of strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and blackberries, provides sweet escape. Seagram’s Escapes offers a variety of colorful and refreshing selections that are sure to make mom smile.

Iced tea is always an excellent choice, and Twisted Tea Blueberry, a fine product of the Twisted Tea Brewing Company, delivers authentic iced tea taste with a splash of blueberry.

Sticking with color, and a play on the pink and blue associated with a mother’s newborns, try a Mike’s Hard Pink Lemonade or Blue Moon Belgian White Ale.

If your mother enjoys cider, present her with a Strongbow Honey & Apple Cider, a delicious blend of bittersweet cider and culinary apples and warm honey with a bright gold pour.

But if she likes the sweet flavors of cider but prefers the traditional taste of beer, offer her a Redd’s Strawberry Ale or Apple Ale. This innovative ale, made by MillerCoors, is beer brewed with fruit flavors rather than cider brewed from fruit.

We also are fortunate to have our mothers’ love and support, so it’s only fitting to pour her an icy cold Miller Fortune. Full of caramel malts, citrus notes, hoppy tones and hints of honey and butterscotch, the subtle sweetness of Miller Fortune is the perfect complement to Mom’s kindness and sweetness.

We salute all mothers on their special day and encourage everyone to always drink responsibly. Here’s to mothers everywhere. Cheers!
