There's nothing quite like a morning mimosa to start your day off on the right foot. This classic brunch cocktail is the perfect way to celebrate a special occasion or just to indulge in a little bit of luxury on a beautiful morning.
To make a morning mimosa, all you need is freshly squeezed orange juice, champagne or cava, a splash of orange liquor, and some fresh mint for garnish. Here's how to whip one up in just a few easy steps:
Start by squeezing two ounces of fresh orange juice and straining out any pulp or seeds. You can use blood oranges, clementines, or any other citrus fruit that you have on hand for a unique twist on the classic recipe.
Next, pour four ounces of champagne or cava into a champagne flute or tall glass. The bubbles in the sparkling wine will help to balance out the sweetness of the orange juice and add a festive touch to your drink.
Add a tiny splash of orange liquor to the glass, using just a teaspoon or so. This will give your mimosa an extra kick of flavor and make it feel a little more special.
Finally, garnish your morning mimosa with a sprig of fresh mint. Not only does this add a pop of green color to your drink, but the mint also adds a refreshing herbal note that complements the sweetness of the orange juice.
And there you have it – a simple and delicious morning mimosa that's sure to brighten up your day.
