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.
But until then…. are you ready to make some mimosas? Okay let’s do this.
- 1 bottle champagne, prosecco or cava, chilled
- 3 blood oranges
- Juice the blood oranges.
- Place 2 tablespoons of the blood orange juice into your champagne flutes.
- Slowly fill them up with the champagne, prosecco or cava and serve.
- Drink and repeat
I am so excited you are making one of my recipes and I would love to see how it turns out. Make sure to share it on instagram and tag me @whatsgabycookin so I can see your masterpiece!
