I love a good cocktail, and you know what’s even more fun? A mimosa because those are okay to drink in the morning. Once in a while that’s it’s a good thing, amiright?
In preparation for Easter, I’ve teamed up with some of my favorite food bloggers to share an entire Easter menu with you. Scroll all the way to the end to see what everyone came up with – I’m drooling over these recipes.
I volunteered to bring the drink to the party, and these Blood Orange Mimosas do not disappoint.
First of all, aren’t they gorgeous? Blood oranges are this beautiful, deep red color and they taste amazing.
Most importantly, you won’t believe how delicious this drink is AND how easy it is to make. Juice the oranges, mix it with champagne and Chambord, then add a few orange slices and sprigs of mint to garnish. DONE.
Blood Orange Mimosa Recipe
- 1 cup of freshly squeeze blood orange juice (about 5 oranges)
- ⅛ cup Chambord liqueur
- 2 750mL bottles of fruity, sweet champage (I used Barefoot Bubbly Peach)
- 2 extra blood oranges to use for garnish, sliced
- Fresh mint for garnish
- Prepare this just before you're ready to serve it. Combine the blood orange juice, Chambord, and champagne in a pitcher. Add ice (about 1 tray). Stir well.
- Add the slices of 1 blood orange to the pitcher plus a handful of fresh mint. Stir again.
- Serve in glasses with a slice of orange along the rim and fresh mint for garnish. Cheers!
These cocktails are perfect for a party, baby shower, holiday meal, or brunch with your friends. Or you can do like me and drink them on a Monday morning after the kids have gone to school because hey, I made this recipe and it’s not going to waste, friends.
A little side note: These champagne flutes are the ones my husband and I used to toast at our wedding nearly 15 years ago and I think this is the first time I’ve used them since. I really need to make these more often, don’t you think? I’ll toast to that!
