3ouncesblood orange juicefreshly squeezed, about 2 oranges
Juice the oranges and pour into a champagne flute
Top off with non-alcoholic champagne. Garnish with fresh thyme, fresh rosemary, or edible flowers
Roll the oranges on a counter top before juicing them, this helps the juice to release.
Using a citrus press gets every drop of juice out and you don't have to worry about the seeds.
The proper ratio is equal parts champagne and juice, but taste it and adjust it to your personal preference.
Try other varieties of oranges if you can't find blood oranges.
You don't have to use fresh squeezed juice, but I highly recommend it for best flavor.
If you don't want to use the nonalcohlic champagne, you can use sparkling water, Sprite, 7-Up, ginger ale, or ginger beer (ginger beer is NONacoholic). It will change the taste dramatically, but you will still have a tasty beverage.

For the alcholic version, choose your favorite champagne or sparkling wine.
