Hey guys! It’s friday, and because it is friday I am coming to you with a cocktail recipe. I have only one other cocktail recipe on the blog, and I think I should do more! : D
Ok, let’s explore this pomegranate mimosa. Pomegranate juice has a really interesting flavor. It’s got this exotic tang to it – so yummy! And then champagne – well we don’t even need to discuss how good champagne is!
Note: By champagne I mean sparkling wine. But I am going to call it champagne. : D
And Mimosas.. are the best! Fizzy, flavored, and not so alcoholic as a straight glass of bubbly. Which in my mind is great, because it just means that you can have another glass if you like.
So, with a pomegranate mimosa you get, bubbles and fizz, the beautiful pomegranate flavor, a drink in gorgeous purple – and, you can have seconds!
Sorry about all of the photos, but I just had so much fun with this photo shoot. Perhaps it was the sips of tested mimosa I was sampling on the side? shhhhhh.
No wonder I want to do more cocktail recipes on the blog. Because I mean, you have to test them you know. Thorough testing is vital.
Besides the sheer sexyness of the pomegranate juice filled with champagne bubbles, just the word mimosa makes me feel nice inside.
When I was a kid, (what’s up with all this childhood reminiscing? Bear with me!… or skip to the recipe : )), my parents had a friend called Edith. She entirely enthralled me, with her dark hair, brown soft eyes and tanned fingers. And I wanted to be just like her when I grew up! Of course I didn’t quite manage that goal 100%.
Anyways, Edith loved mimosa’s and I just decided that that must mean that mimosa’s are the ultimate girl drink. ; P
By the way – in case you are unfamiliar with the mimosa traditions, they can be drunk at brunch, and if they are – then the brunch is called a champagne breakfast. Such a pretty sounding meal! As pomegranate juice is just the kind of uber-good-for you thing one might drink at breakfast, I think it all works together perfectly.
Of course this does not mean that you cannot have a mimosa at sundown or in the evening! I hope you try the recipe, and love it!
