Make Mine a Mimosa

Yes, I am not afraid to admit that I am a fan of mimosas defined as a cocktail that is made up of equal parts champagne and citrus juice usually but not limited to orange juice. Not one specific type, I am an all-inclusive fan. Whenever mimosas are an item on the menu I try to indulge for research I can share that info with you all. Enjoying mimosas while you are out and about is one thing but being able to create your own to enjoy whenever the urge hits is a good option too. Below are some fantastic recipes for just that.

1. Mango Mimosas

    Ingredients: 4 mangoes, 1 mango & 1 bottle of Champagne

In a large pitcher,     mix together pureed mango and champagne. Thread 3 to 4 mango cubes each onto 8 skewers. Pour     mango mimosa into 8 glasses and serve each with a mango skewer.
