Cynthia raves about why it’s perfect for your brunch menu. “It’s light, it’s not too sweet, and there is a good amount of carbonation in there.” And if your mom’s not down to get drunk on a Sunday, Cynthia says that’s fine, too. “The reason it’s a good go-to is because it doesn’t really have a lot of alcohol — it’s only about six percent alcohol. Us moms, we get so busy, a lot of times we need time to decompress, but we don’t want to get a lit lit.” Of course, if you’re in the mood to get day drunk, feel free to spike your own drink.
This is how the Real Housewives of Atlanta star is celebrating her own Mother’s Day this year
As for Cynthia’s Mother’s Day, she’ll be spending it with her own mom eating some good home-cooked Southern food. “We told her she can’t cook and we’re all going to cook [for her]. I’m going to make my famous potato salad and some turkey breast. I love steamed cabbage, you know, like traditional Thanksgiving food. I love that menu any time of the year.”
It makes sense that Cynthia’s focused on giving her mom the best Mother’s Day — she feels strongly about celebrating moms and that it shouldn’t be limited to one day.
“Mother’s Day should really be every day because I think moms have to keep the entire family together. So [if you’re a mother] don’t forget to treat yourself every day. I really look at every day like Mother’s Day, because it really is the most important job that I have.”
