How to make the perfect Momosa

What's a MOMosa?
It's what all Moms want to be sipping this upcoming Mother's Day. It's kind of like a mimosa, but better.

How do I make it?
Mimosa = 70% Sparkling Wine + 30% Orange Juice 
MOMosa = 99% Sparkling Wine + 1% Orange Juice

What sparkling wine should I use?
Champagne = sparkling wine from Champagne, France made with Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, or Pinot Meunier grapes, or some combination of these (depends on the exact style). Champagne tends to be more expensive than Prosecco or Cava. With Champagne, you may not even want to add that 1% of OJ.


Prosecco = sparkling wine from Italy made with a grape called Glera. 


Cava = sparkling wine from Spain made with a blend of Macabeu, Parellada and Xarel-lo grapes (don't worry about remembering the names of these).

What wine glass should I use?

Since you'll be going lighter on the OJ and heavier on the sparkling, give the wine a little extra room to breathe by using a bigger wine glass than you'd expect (think a white wine glass vs. champagne flute).
