NEWS Mothers Day dining and gift ideas

Here are a few ideas for Mothers Day. More will be added as we head towards Mothers Day on the 31st March.

GIFTS FOR MUM : Sparkling Rose from Martini, Scotland

Spoil your mum this March with a delicious bottle of Extra Dry sparkling Rosé from the world’s no.1 Italian sparkling wine brand MARTINI.

They have launched their award-winning Rosé Extra Dry in the UK, just in time for Mother’s Day. Offering a combination of summer fruits and citrus flavours, the MARTINI Rosé Extra Dry will be a hit for any Mother’s Day activity; whether it’s enjoying the spring sunshine (maybe not in Scotland) in the garden or catching up over dinner.
With the rosé trend blooming, what better way to catch up with your favourite lady than with this refreshingly dry and versatile wine. An exquisite pairing with seafood, such as a tasty prawn linguine or smoked salmon canapés, this elegant wine is perfect to celebrate someone special.
Soft and vibrant with a delicate aroma, scents of wild rose and red fruits plus a touch of black pepper, this wine is drier in style than most sparkling rosés. With a salmon pink and violet glint, the MARTINI Rosé Extra Dry is enjoyable on the palate and the eyes.

A welcome gift on Mother’s Day or anytime you just want to give her a little treat. She deserves something special and at £10.99 it won’t break the bank. Not only that, MARTINI is offering a complimentary balloon glass when you buy a bottle in Asda for Mother’s Day (until stocks last).
For those wanting to surprise their amazing mum, pop open a refreshing and crisp bottle of
MARTINI Rosé Extra Dry this 31st March.
