…from the Perspectives Happy Hour Bar
How you doin’? Spring has sprung and in SoCal it’s time for those great backyard brunches with fresh berries and fruit, yeasted waffles and Hawaiian French Toast (made with King’s Hawaiian Bread). But don’t forget the libations. For these occasions, there is nothing better than a Mimosa.
A Mimosa Cocktail is composed of dry, sparkling white wine and chilled, fresh orange juice. It is traditionally served in a tall champagne flute at brunch, at weddings, or as part of business or first class service on some airlines.
What is the best Champagne for Mimosas? Well it isn't actually Champagne. For Mimosas, I opt for a less-expensive Cava from Spain or Prosecco from Italy. They're both delicious dry sparkling wines that mix well with citrus juice.
Let me warn you… Bottomless mimosas should be approached with caution. People often don't realize that they are getting drunk, due to the champagne being mixed with orange juice, but it eventually hits them and hits them hard.
Prep time: 3 minutes
Yield: 1 serving
5 ounces freshly squeezed orange juice, well chilled
3 ounces Cava, Prosecco or Champagne, well chilled
Garnish: orange wheel, cherries or fresh strawberry
ChefSecret: There are several wonderful variations on this bar standard and they don’t all involve OJ.
