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!
