Sure, breakfast in bed can be a really nice way to celebrate the mother in your life. But you know what? Parenting can be very thirsty work. Raising kids is intensely rewarding, but it can be totally crazy-making too. I mean, have you ever experienced a toddler at 4pm? A tween who wants a cellphone? A teenager who wants the car keys? You might want a cocktail (or a mocktail) too. Here are 9 fantastic drinks, some alcoholic and some not, that are steadying, well-balanced and entirely delicious. In fact, these drinks might just be the perfect way to celebrate your mom and tip your hat to the realities of parenting too.—Anna Painter
