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

Bethany, if you like a Mimosa, try a Poinsetta! It's just like a Mimosa, but you use cranberry juice instead of OJ! Tastes great and gives your guests a bit of variety for very little extra cost!

Mimosa
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.

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?
