Sunrise Mimosa: A Kiss of Sunshine On a Rainy Day

7th Mar 2016 @ 14:43 by Lindsay

There’s nothing like a warm kiss of sunshine on your face while sipping on a glass of bubbly. This recipe is for all of us Californian’s swimming through the much-needed rain we’ve been getting this month. Here’s a little glass of sunshine to get you through.

The Sunrise Mimosa is simply a delightful take on your standard mimosa recipe, and we can assure you that after one sip, you’ll be going bottomless… even if it is raining outside.

This recipe has a hint of tasty chai that dances in your mouth with scrumptious deep red citrus flavors of blood orange. Our recipe is three parts bubbly (we love using Bodkin, a local sparkling Sauvignon Blanc) to one part Spicy Vines’ Original Blend and a dash of freshly squeezed blood orange juice.

Ingredients

  • 1 oz Spicy Vines Original Blend, chilled
  • 3 oz sparkling wine, chilled
  • 1 oz blood orange juice, freshly squeezed
  • 1Blood orange slice and/ or curl or blood orange peel

Instructions

Build in a Champagne flute, adding the blood orange juice last. To garnish, slice a thin sliver of one of your blood oranges and toss in your glass.

Pairing

You will love the beautiful pink color of this mimosa, a color that looks even more beautiful aside a charcuterie plate pairing made with sharp blue cheese, walnuts, wild honeycomb and fresh blood orange slices. Yum!
