For the mimosa-loving crowd out there, I have some news. You’re missing out. Yes, the typical orange juice mixed with sparkling wine or champagne is delicious and lovely. But a simple swap will blow your taste buds. Up for the challenge? Read on!
There’s a local bar I love to frequent in the summer due to the wicker couches on their patio (the fantastic drinks and fried mac & cheese are also good points). It was there that I discovered this amazing concoction. However the true test subject was my sister. I feel that she could hold the title for Number One Mimosa Lover. On a recent visit, I begged her to try this variation on her favorite cocktail. It took a lot of convincing as she was pretty doubtful.
I’m very proud to say, that she is a convert. In fact, if I may quote her, she uttered the phrase, “My mind is literally blown right now.”
Make your own white cranberry juice mimosa at home! If you happen to be sipping one while reading a book on your back porch, even better!
- 2 1/2 oz (1 part) Champagne or sparkling wine
- 2 1/2 oz (1 part) White cranberry juice
- Ensure both ingredients are well chilled, then mix into a champagne flute. Serve cold.
