Mother's Day Spicy Ginger Soda

Mother's Day is coming up! Nobody likes standing in long lines at restaurant's waiting to eat. Then there is the bad service and cranky hungry people to listen to, the cramped quarters too. 
Instead, do something really nice for your mum, set out a nice tablecloth with a small bouquet of flowers, whip out the "good" china, and make her Mimosa's or Soda drinks for starters.
Add a delicious quiche or eggs Benedict with a side of Mango's with mint and a sprinkle of coconut sugar or vanilla sugar. Finish with Frangelico coffee. Ahhhhhhhhh
