I'm still breastfeeding so I needed something light. I immediately went to Pintrest and the possibilities are endless. So here is how I did mine.
I made the traditional orange juice and Champagne mix first. I love fruit garnish on my drinks so I added grapes to my flute and topped it with a pineapple. I really wanted a strawberry but I didn't have any.
Next I tried it with lemonade. This was great. I will suggest though get the juice with no pulp. I forgot to specify this when my niece went to the store. It wasn't a big deal for me but hubby instantly said "hmm it has pulp in it."
A while ago (like before baby number 2) hubby and I went to brunch where they served unlimited mimosas and one of them had beer in it. So who would I be to deny
myself my family the full experience. LOL! Come on I'm the same woman that gave away alcohol shots at her baby shower. Of course I would try it with beer. I liked it. My mom noted that it gave a more "alcohol like taste" she was not a fan of the "sweet girly drink."
One thing to keep in mind is to serve it cold. I noticed when the champagne got a little warm it was not as good to drink.
Judging by this gif of me I really enjoyed myself.
Does adding couple shots make this post relate to love? If not let me add I will be having a mimosas for Valentines Day sense it was a hit.
Clearly this was taken before that awful call to throw the ball...
Have you ever had mimosas? Do you enjoy them? What are your favorite ingredients??
