Brunch Basics: Delicious Mimosas

If there is one thing I absolutely love, its hosting events. But above all party types, my favorite will always be hosting a good brunch. There is nothing quite as amazing as enjoying a delicious breakfast late in the morning with good friends, preferably with lots of warm weather and sunshine. Before I became a mom, one of my favorite recipes to make for brunch were mimosas. (It’s not as acceptable to drink mimosas now when there are tiny humans running around, need to set a good example for them!) But for those days where I do make them, here is my favorite recipe:

Delightful mimosas. 

Brunch Mimosa
  • 1/2 gallon orange juice, chilled
  • 1 2-liter bottle ginger ale, chilled
  • 1/2 cup orange liqueur (Grand Marnier or Triple Sec)
  • Orange slices
  • Fresh Strawberries, halved
  • 2 bottles chilled dry champagne
  • Ice

Combine orange juice, ginger ale, orange liqueur, orange slices and strawberries in beverage decanter or large punch bowl.  Cover and refrigerate until chilled.  As you are getting ready to serve these delicious treats, add the white wine or champagne and ice.  Stir and serve.

 

Happy Brunching!
