A winter inspired cocktail made of one part blood orange juice, one part champagne, and crushed ice. This blood orange mimosa is perfect for weekends with family and friends.
Hi! This is Andrea from Cooking with a Wallflower, and I’m back this month on Ask Anna to share with you a brand new recipe, a bright and fun, blood orange mimosa.
I hope that you guys have been staying dry these past few months. We’ve had pretty relentless rain storms since the beginning of the year. And while it’s amazing that the rain is helping us out of years long droughts and also filling water reservoirs, it’s not very fun being stuck in the rain while trying to get to work in the morning. Here’s to staying dry and enjoying all the spring wildflowers that have sprouted all over from the rain.
Citrus season is at its height during the winter months and one of my favorite citruses is blood oranges. It’s sweet, it’s tangy, and that dark bright red color adds so much festiveness to your drinks. So naturally, I want to make cocktails with blood oranges while it’s still available. Do you have a favorite citrus?
Blood orange mimosas are super simple to make. I’m obsessed with mimosas because they pair perfectly with brunch but they don’t require a lot of work. So if you have family and friends over, all you need is equal parts juice and champagne. You can easily scale this drink to serve more people. And for those who want a non-alcoholic version, you can substitute the champagne with either club soda or ginger beer. I personally prefer the ginger beet.
In a tall glass or champagne flute, add blood orange juice and top with champagne. Add crushed ice. Serve these blood orange mimosas immediately cold.
