Nicole left it up to me to choose this week’s Thirsty Thursday theme and maybe it’s because I’ve been dreaming of the Mimosas I plan on having on Sunday, but I suggested a Mother’s Day theme. Because every mom needs a cocktail on Mother’s Day, right?
I had planned on making a fancier mimosa but remember how I told you guys my husband always takes my car when it snows because he needs new windshield wipers? Well it rained yesterday.Â And he still needs windshield wipers. So he took my car.
The kids and I walked to the tiny PX near our house, which if you aren’t familiar is kind of like a gas station but without gas and with liquor. It’s a fun place. But anyway, the options are pretty limited and all I could come up with was orange juice. Which was fine with me because, hey, who doesn’t like a regular ol’ Mimosa?!
I love these things so much. They take no time to whip up – you can either do them one at a time or do an entire batch if you’re serving a crowd. Seriously, can’t get easier! Or more delicious!
Nicole made Cucumber, Mint, and Basil Soda!
- 2 ounces Champagne or other sparkling wine chilled
- 1/2 ounce Triple Sec
- 2 ounces orange juice
- orange slices for garnish
Pour champagne, Triple Sec, and orange juice in a champagne flute. Garnish with orange slice.
(To make a batch of Mimosas (12 servings), pour one bottle (750 ml) chilled Champagne into a pitcher. Stir in 3 cups orange juice and 3/4 cup Triple Sec.)
