Can't resist a Mimosa.
A favorite way to ring in the New Year, a Mimosa is simply orange juice and champagne. Two of my favorite things! This classic is well and good all on it's own.....but if you'd like to shake things up a bit (and we always enjoy shaking things up a bit) why not try a few other citrus juices? And perhaps Italy's Prosecco, or Spain's Cava would be nice in exchange for Champagne. For a non-alcoholic version, try (a lemon or lime flavored? or simply plain) sparkling water, as a substitute for the alcohol.
This version from Yellow Press Weddings is a great place to begin.
The following recipe serves 10 to 12.
2 1/4 cups freshly squeezed or frozen blood-orange juice
2 750-ml bottles champagne, chilled
Pour 3 tablespoons juice in each champagne flute. Fill flutes with champagne, and serve.
