Blood Orange Mimosas

I’m going to start with the fact that I can’t really call this a recipe. I mean there are only 2 ingredients. Does that make it a recipe? I don’t know. Here’s what I do know… you need a Blood Orange Mimosa in your life stat. Maybe 2 or 3 even. They changed my life a few weeks back while we were up in Santa Barbara and I’ve been obsessing over them ever since. Not to mention, look at that pretty pink color. I want all my mimosas to look like that forever and ever. Kthanksbye

But no, really. Let’s make these. They are pretty excellent for Sunday brunch. Or fun for a little girls night dinner. Or a cute little date night cocktail. Here’s my one word of advice, if you’re going to make these, make them one day and then take a day or two off. Don’t be like me (and drink them 5 days in a row) and pretend that you’re still 21 and in your prime college days where you could drink a few drinks on a daily basis and still manage to make it to class, write a A+ worthy paper, play on the tennis team, and hold down an internship. Ya, it just doesn’t work like that anymore.

Needless to say, I was hurting this weekend. Who said 3 day weekends were relaxing? I beg to differ. 3 day weekends are rough. And I’m just now feeling better. I see a juice cleanse in my near future.
