    Easy to prepare and delicious to drink, this Mango Raspberry "MOMosa" is the perfect beverage for Mother's Day. Puree one ripe mango (peeled, pitted, and cut into chunks), 1-2 Tablespoons of sugar, and a teaspoon of lemon juice until smooth. Set the puree aside in the fridge until ready to use, then pour into a champagne flute, followed by chilled champagne, a splash of raspberry liqueur, and fresh raspberries. Yum!

    We've got you covered for the rest of your meal too! Kick things off with this tangy take on the classic shrimp cocktail, follow it up with delicious Mediterranean chicken skewers, and sweeten things up with a Greek yogurt parfait for dessert.
