BLOOD ORANGE MIMOSA MOCKTAIL
This Non-alcoholic Mimosa is perfect for any celebratory occasion, and that could just mean, you made it to the weekend! This one is THE BEST recipe out there because it actually tastes like the REAL THING.
A classic Mimosa is made up of just two ingredients, champagne, and orange juice. The secret to the success of this recipe is two things: Using non-alcoholic champagne, such as the Fre' that I used here, makes it taste like a real mimosa. And the blood orange juice, freshly squeezed, just brings this up to another level. I love blood oranges! They're beautiful in color and taste sweet and intensely orange with a hint of raspberry.
HOW TO MAKE A MIMOSA
VARIATIONS There are so many flavor variations and options for a non-alcoholic Mimosa. Here are just a few options to change it up: – If you don't have blood oranges, try your favorite variety, I really like Cara Cara oranges too. – You don't have to use fresh-squeezed, but I highly recommend it! – Add a splash of pineapple juice for a tropical feel – Muddle a couple of raspberries in the bottom of the glass for added color and flavor.
CHAMPAGNE VS. SPARKLING WINE Champagne is actually a sparkling wine that comes from the Champagne region of northeastern France. If it's a bubbly wine from another region, it's called Sparkling Wine In this recipe, I used a Brut. Champagne and Sparkling Wine come in varying levels of sweetness. Brut means 'dry, raw, unrefined' in French. It's a style of Champagne that is low in sugar.
"This is such a good idea. I love the idea of having a brunch and still having the fun of a cocktail (without the alcohol). Sounds so yummy."
