It's before noon- of course I love mimosa

Who decided champagne and orange juice was an ok breakfast choice? Whoever it is, I plan to give him or her a big wet one. The bubbly effervescence of the champagne and the slight tartness of the orange juice marry beautifully into a lovely way to party down in the morning.

A note: I suggest starting with about 1/2 orange juice and 1/2 champagne, then increase the champagne portion with each wonderful serving. Then again, I'm a drunk.

Who's up for mimosa brunch?

I'm always up for a mimosa brunch! It's definitely my preferred choice over Bloody Marys.

With two of my favorite things combined in one cup, the mimosa is fast becoming a weekend brunch staple in my household because it's tasty and goes well with all my favorite brunch food items.  I mean, it's like having an OJ for brunch, except its got some bubbly in it ;)

I was introduced to this wonderful drink at a Mardi Gras party one year. It's been a favorite ever since.

Such a great, light drink. The perfect cocktail to serve when hosting a brunch, a bridal shower, or even a baby shower.
