New Years Day Passion Fruit Mimosa
If I want a drink, I usually have a shot of Bushmill’s whiskey or good tequila over, ‘store bought’ ice. I like some champagne now and then but a glass is about as far as I get. If we have people over, for New Years Eve, they usually bring champagne and so the dilemma.
How many of us have a bottle or two of modest quality, champagne sitting in the back of the fridge? And it might sit there for a few years.
Why not make a delicious and refreshing drink… the Passion Fruit Mimosa.
Here’s the basic recipe
Passion fruit juice or OJ or a combination of both, chilled
A slice of orange
Fill a champagne flute, half full with champagne, slowly top with Passion fruit juice or OJ, taking care not to over-fill. Depending on glass size and presentation, garnish appropriately. Some like crushed ice added before the champagne. If the kids are there you can make virgin Mimosas by using 7-up or Sprite in place of the champagne.
