Momosas: A Mocktail Recipe!


Don’t miss this fun mocktail recipe, which puts a fun spin on mimosas. Perfect for kids and adults!

Momosas Mocktail Recipe - A tasty nonalcoholic spin on mimosas!

My friend Cathy at Lemon Tree Dwelling is expecting her fourth baby girl next month! There are many questions I have about this like:

  1. How did she get FOUR girls? As you know, I have two boys and am convinced that if I had more they would all be boys. I think that’s the only kind of kid I make.
  2. How is she such an amazing blogger with three (soon to be four) kids to take care of? I can barely keep up as it is. I think #1 must be a factor.

All I can say is that Cathy is one talented, lucky lady, and I am really excited to help her celebrate her pending arrival with a virtual baby shower! Some of her blogging buddies are all surprising her this morning with recipes we made just for her!

Virtual Baby Shower for Lemon Tree Dwelling

I happen to know that Cathy is fond of cocktails, but of course she has to stick to mocktails for another few weeks. What better treat for her than this fun “mom”osa? If you have to leave out the champagne, you might as well get sherbet out of the deal, am I right? This special drink will make kids super happy too! I do recommend serving it with a straw (not shown here) to stir in the sherbet as it melts. Oh, and be set up for refills because it’s hard to drink just one!

      Thanks, Krista! I’m looking forward to checking out all the other recipes today and imagining how fun it would be if we could all REALLY get together for a baby shower!

    Awww you are so sweet, Andi! And I tend to think you’re right – so many people I know either make boys OR girls (not both!!) This is the PERFECT drink for me right now….to satisfy all my cravings :) Thanks for all your support – personally and in the world of blogging – and thanks for being part of my baby shower!

    • Andi says

      I’m glad you like it, Cathy! I wish we could share one in person! I hope we do get to meet in person someday, but for now I’m happy to have you as my online friend :)

    • Andi says

      Yes, I think she must have super powers for sure! Thanks for stopping by, Lisa. Good luck with your baby on the way too!

    • Andi says

      Thanks, Dorothy! Sherbet and ice cream should be in cocktails more often if you ask me. Thanks for stopping by!

    • Andi says

      I know a lot of us have a lot of guilt for not paying enough attention to our kids so we can get some work done! I tell myself it’s good to give them some independence and not entertain them constantly, and I hope that’s true! Thanks for coming over, Lisa :) You could make a non-dairy version of this with sorbet!

    Oh my goodness!! This is incredible!! I love the virtual baby shower!!!

    Your MOMosa is absolutely perfect! I will definitely keep this in mind for future parties! We typically just make a quick punch, but this would be so much more fun! And my kiddos will love this, too – a super fun drink we can all have! :)

    • Andi says

      Thank you so much, Gretchen! You could make this one as a punch too, but the champagne glasses make it feel fancy ;)

    • Andi says

      Thank you, Kelly! I am always amazed at home much you get done with now two little ones at home. I always feel so behind on visiting friends’ blogs, folding laundry, and a million other things. I definitely don’t feel like a super mom!

      • says

        Oh Andi, you’re way too kind. I feel so behind too – I have a backlog of food pictures but every time I sit down to try to write a post or transfer the pictures – one of the little ones needs me haha. So you are definitely a rockstar for being able to post so many yummy eats :)
