I just realized that Mother’s Day is only in a couple of weeks. I knew that it was coming up, but I did not realize it would be here so soon. I have no idea what we are doing on Mother’s Day. Usually we spend the day before Mother’s Day with both my mom and my mother-in-law and then I like to spend Mother’s Day as a family with my husband and kids. We usually like to do something special together and have a fun day.
For my first Mother’s Day when my oldest son was 10 months old we stayed home and my son played in a baby swimming pool. When my son was 1 we took him to the aquarium, which was a lot of fun. Last year we went to Chocolate World and Zoo America. I am not sure what we will do this year. We usually kind of wing it and see what we feel like doing . Plus we have an infant now, so it is hard to go too far. One thing we always do to celebrate is to have breakfast. I always like to make a fun breakfast cocktail that I can also make without alcohol for my son.
These Watermelon Bellinis tasted fantastic and were so refreshing. Plus I love the pink color, which makes them so much more fun. These are also easy to make. All you need to do is puree watermelon in a blender and then mix it in a glass with either champagne or sparkling apple cider. These are the perfect summer cocktail and would be perfect for a summer brunch, especially Mother’s Day. I especially like that you can make non-alcoholic versions for the kids with sparkling cider. My son felt that he was having such a fancy drink. I can’t wait to have one of these great bellinis again!
