This is the perfect Strawberry Lemonade Momosa if you are looking for a way to treat mom for Mother’s Day. Sweet strawberry lemonade is frozen into beautiful floral ice molds and topped off with champagne for the perfect mimosa for her on Mother’s Day or any spring brunch. It would also be a beautiful drink to serve at a bridal shower as well! Scroll down for my recipe and more Mother’s Day ideas from my friends at the Cozy Creative Collaborative.

Now on to The Perfect Strawberry Lemonade Momosa for Mother’s Day

I love a classic mimosa but have you ever had a strawberry lemonade mimosa? This is such a sweet and refreshing sip and the rose shaped ice cubes are so pretty! You will need these ice cube molds to make the roses. You can do any shape, and Amazon has several to choose from but I loved the roses for spring and Mother’s Day. It would be perfect for a Mother’s Day tea or brunch. If you’re looking for Mother’s Day tea ideas, make sure you check out this post from last year to see our Mother’s Day tea with my DIY tea bags.

This can easily be made into a mocktail too with some non-alcoholic bubbles.

Here is my recipe

Ingredients:

  • Lemonade
  • Pureed strawberries (I used frozen strawberries but made sure they were thawed)
  • champagne
  • lemon zest (optional)
  • chopped basil (optional)

Directions:

1.) Start by preparing the mixture to fill your ice molds. In a mason jar I combined lemonade, a few spoonfuls of pureed strawberries and a pinch of chopped basil and mixed well. (You don’t have to add basil but I had some in my fridge and I love the flavor of strawberry and basil together).

2.) Sprinkle some lemon zest into the ice molds then fill each with the strawberry lemonade mixture. Save the leftover strawberry lemonade in a mason jar in the fridge.

3.) Cover the ice cube molds and freeze.

4.) When ready to serve, pop out an ice cube from the mold and place into a glass.

Spicy Ranch Water

Spicy Ranch Water

Have you tried Ranch Water? It’s a refreshing, low calorie cocktail. I decided to give it a little kick since I have discovered my love of spicy beverage. Scroll down for my easy spicy ranch water recipe anytime you want a nice cool tequila cocktail with a little punch.

What is Ranch Water?

Ranch Water originally was made in Texas out of Topo Chico mineral water, limes and tequila. It was the cattle ranchers preferred beverage to cool off after a long day of working in the heat. With just a few ingredients, it’s super easy to make and is more of like the casual sibling of the margarita.

Spicy Ranch Water

Ranch water on it’s own is very refreshing but I wanted to give it a little extra kick. I’ve never been a fan of spicy things but last year I fell in love with spicy margaritas. A friend of ours gave us a bunch of jalapenos from their garden and I made this Spicy Watermelon Margarita (click here for the recipe).

The jalapenos add a nice heat and are balanced by the coolness of the bubbly Topo Chico so it’s not too incredibly spicy. Rim your glass with a little Tajin seasoning for some salty spice with each sip.

And you’ve also got to try my Spicy Pineapple Ranch Water which is amazing!!! Click here for the recipe.

Spicy Ranch Water

Ingredients:

  • Topo chico mineral water
  • Blanco tequila (my favorite is Casa Amigos)
  • Lime sliced into wedges
  • 1 jalapeno sliced.
  • Tajin seasoning

Directions:

1.) Start by rimming your glass with some Tajin seasoning. (I found this Tajin seasoning rimmer on Amazon)

2.) Fill your glass with ice. I like to use a rocks glass, like this set. Squeeze the juice from a wedge of lime and add the lime wedge and a few slices of jalapenos.

3.) Add your tequila. I don’t measure so use your judgement πŸ˜‰

4.) Fill to the top with Topo Chico and stir.

5.) Add a few more jalapeno slices to garnish.

Enjoy!!!
