Please allow me to share with you a delicious drink recipe that will definitely get you excited about the upcoming weekend! Blood-Orange & Pomegranate Mimosa. So classy, so tasty, and so worth the trek to the farmers market (or out to the backyard, in my case) for some tangy blood-oranges!
How to prepare this marvelous morning mimosa:
Send your puppy to go pick some blood oranges from the tree. Or, alternatively you could pick some up at your local farmers market. Either way, they will be juicy and delicious.
Okay, so Kona didn’t really pick those oranges, but he was definitely standing guard while I picked more. Please note: he has a water-colored kerchief around his neck, worn as his Easter Sunday best. What an angel.
Wash and slice oranges in half. Get the electric juicer out, and put it to good use.
You will want to make a full pitcher of juice, since it is so luscious.
Pop champagne. Or, sparkling wine*, in this case.
*Little Yellow Note: Sparkling wine tends to be a little sweeter, which paired well with the tangy blood-orange juice.
Pull out your finest stemwear. I suppose plastic champagne flutes would work just as well, or any old cup for that matter. No judgements on the appearance, its all about the taste
Fill glasses about 1/3 full of blood orange juice. Jen has a steady pour. Thanks Jen.
Add a splash or two of pure pomegranate juice. Then fill the rest with champagne or sparkling wine!
It is an art to pour champagne. I would know; I used to work as a server at a country club where wedding toasts demanded hundreds of champagne flutes to be filled. My advice to you is to pour some, then let the foam settle, and then fill the glass the rest of the way.
See, perfect! With a little frothy action on the top.
My older sister and brother are so cool. Even though Paul called it a “girly” drink, he still adored it.
Cheers! Salute! Prost! Salud!
