Kid-free wish list for Mother's Day

Sweet treats and grown-up fun

When the day is done and the kids go to bed take a moment for yourself for a sweet treat or glass of wine. The occasional indulgence is even better with these brands.

Matthews 1812 House

Cookies, brownies, candy, sauces and cakes - Matthews 1812 House catalog is filled with over the top indulgences that taste better than they sound. Single Malt Scotch Caramels, Fudge Brownie Torte, Classic Lemon Bar - they smell good just reading the names! Add the savory cookies like Rosemary Olive Oil and the gluten free options there’s something groan-worthy for everyone. Whether you share or not is totally up to you. I did my best not to with the Lemon Coconut cookies.

Fire Department Coffee

This coffee brand, launched last July is dedicated to making a superior for those who serve. Firefighter’s Luke Schneider and Mark Williams’ new line of spirit infused coffees they take your daily java fix to a whole new level.The proprietary infusion process, removes the charred barrel flavor that gives coffees like this a harsh flavor.

The excitement is already stirring for other flavors so plans are in the works for limited edition releases. Follow the company on social media for information. Right now the infused coffees are available in these flavors:

Bourbon Infusion -- Experience the smoothness of bourbon every morning without feeling guilty.
Rum Infusion -- Be transported to tropical shores while getting just the right kick of caffeine to get the job done.
Tequila Infusion -- Complex and delicious, this unique infusion holds hints of lime and ends with a crisp, sweet finish

Prosecco DOC

I tell my younger daughter she’s the reason I drink. But after a decade I have come to appreciate a higher quality of wine. Prosecco DOC is a perfect fit for that appreciation. It is a sparkling wine produced exclusively in specific parts of Italy’s Veneto and Friuli regions to the north and northeast of Venice.

Mt. Beautiful 

This New Zealand winery offers 100% estate grown, certified sustainable wines including Rose, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Riesling and Pinot Noir. My favorite is the Sauvignon Blanc, which pairs floral aromatics and tropical flavours such as guava and melon-like fruit, which creates a freshness on the palate that ends with a crisp finish.

Be Tini

Be Tini’s are available in 6 flavors: Margarita,Cake, Appletini, Lemon Drop, Tropical Sunset and Pink Cranberry. Their low sugar content each ounce 25 tini calories.
