You’ve probably heard of a mimosa. But what about a momosa? Take a classic drink, add some domestic flair (a.k.a. different ingredients that moms love), and voila! You’ve got yourself a sweet little something for moms to enjoy with their friends. Some moms like having girls night out, and some enjoy a more relaxed environment- something like brunch.
I personally love getting together with my girlfriends and chatting about the ups and downs of life and motherhood over food and drinks. I don’t indulge in alcoholic beverages often, but a good fruity drink can often be too much to resist. For your next girls get together, try one of these 10 delicious momosa recipes.

They are perfect for occasions where there is a surplus of estrogen. I mean, c’mon- look at how girlie and “brunch-y” these are. Love it!

10. Non-Alcoholic Momosa
Since I’m not a big drinker, I often opt for non-alcoholic drinks. And when I was pregnant, I always appreciated having a non-alcoholic option at social events. If you have friends who are pregnant, or who don’t drink alcohol, this “virgin” take on a momosa will make sure you’re not defriended on Facebook for serving up something that not everyone can drink. Then again, your alcoholic friends might not be so happy.
