The Mama Mimosa

User Rating 4 Star Rating (4 Reviews)

By

Take your traditional Mimosa recipe and add a delicate splash of an orange liquer topped with crushed raspberry ice - this Mimosa is not called the "Mama Mimosa" for nothing!

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 5 minutes

Ingredients:

  • Orange Juice (1 half gallon carton)
  • Champagne or Sparkling Wine ( 750 mL Bottle)
  • Orange Liquer
  • 1/2 cup fresh raspberries

Preparation:

Pour the carton of chilled orange juice into a 3 quart pitcher and then add the full bottle of chilled Champagne or sparkling wine. Next add 2 shots of orange liquer and stir the orange juice, Champagne and orange liquer until thoroughly mixed. Just before serving add the raspberry ice* to the pitcher and pour about 4 ounces of the mimosa mix into Champagne flutes or if you'd like to show off more of the raspberry ice pour the mimosa mix into regular wine glasses. * Raspberry ice - crumble fresh raspberries and place the crumbles into narrow ice cube trays, fill with water and freeze. Adds a very nice touch to any Mimosa!

I didn't freeze the raspberries in the ice trays, b/c I ran out of time, but will try that next time around. Just threw the berries in before serving and dumped ice in for more chill - perfect!!!
