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
- Pureed strawberries (I used frozen strawberries but made sure they were thawed)
- lemon zest (optional)
- chopped basil (optional)
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.
5.) Top with champagne or prosecco.
6.) Add a splash of strawberry lemonade to taste.

I was never really one to go out on New Year’s Eve. Even before kids I would much rather stay home in my pajamas, get some takeout and watch the ball drop from my couch. Now I’m lucky if I can make it til midnight. Below I’m sharing 6 fun ideas for your New Years at home! There’s mocktails, slime and a free printable and more!
Here are 6 fun Ideas to Ring in the New Year at Home
1.) Have a smorgasboard- instead of a fancy dinner, do a bunch of appetizers. To me it feels more indulgent to have an array of picky foods. Set up a grazing table or a big charcuterie board. We also will do fondue and a few things from Chinese takeout.
2.) Do a Champagne Saber – This may seem a little bougee and you may only use it once a year, but how fun?? And you can get one right on Amazon, who knew?
3.) Festive mocktails – apple cider and gummy bears, milk and cookies, the sky is the limit! Here are a few of my favorites we’ve done. Click for this fun cotton candy drink. Or make milk and cookies fun by dipping the rims of glasses into marshmallow fluff and then sprinkles!
4.) Make a vision board or write out your intentions. – I have been doing this for a few years now. I usually pick a word for the year and then right out all of the things that I want to accomplish or manifest. I keep it visible right on a board in my office and look at it daily. It’s amazing the goals and things that I’ve been able to cross off.
5.) Make Disco Slime – Sure it’s a little messy but the kids loved it! Check out the easy directions below:
- 3/4 cup glue
- 1 1/2 tbsp contact solution
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- In a bowl mix together glue and contact solution.
- Sprinkle in baking soda and a few splashes of water. (I didn’t measure the water but add more if you want your slime to be more stretchy.)
- Sprinkle in glitter and mix together.
- The slime solution will start out really sticky at first but the more you mix it will come together.
- Add some contact solution to your hands before working the slime so that it doesn’t stick as much. The more you play with it it will become less sticky.
- I usually store in an airtight container for a few days.
6.) Annual Recap with the kids – I have been doing this for a few years now and it’s fun to see the kid’s responses over the years. Click to download my free printable New Years Recap
