“We women of one country will be too tender of those of another country to allow our sons to be trained to injure theirs.”
-Julia Ward Howe, Mother’s Day, 1819
What would be an awesome accompaniment to the Mother’s Day waffle bar that we printed earlier this week? A lovely sweet and savory take on the classic mimosa! Celebrate all of the women who have mothered you and who are special in your life. And a special shout out to my mommy, Katherine Kenneally! Cheers!

4 parts champagne or prosecco sparkling wine
