Hey everyone! Happy Easter! Hope you're all enjoying your holiday at home with your loved ones. This is my favorite time of year, probably because it's finally acceptable to wear pastels, not that it stops me at any other time of the year. Finally, I don't stick out like a swore thumb though!
I've whipped up quite a delicious (and EASY) cocktail for your Easter festivities. It is literally three ingredients and is sure to impress your holiday guests. Although perfect for Easter, where brunch meals are the norm, this drink is acceptable to serve throughout the Spring season OR any other time of the year that you want to add a little special something to your regular classic mimosa. Get creative with in season fruit and vegetables. You don't have to stop with orange juice!
Carrot and Orange Mimosa
1 oz. Orange Juice
1 oz. Carrot Juice
Top with Sparkling
Add your juices to a flute glass and fill with sparkling wine. Garnish with a carrot top.
Guys...carrot juice is so delicious. Why has it taken me this long to realize it? I have a confession to make and it's that I don't have a slow juicer. I've always wanted one but have never had the extra space for kitchen gadgets. Now that I've moved and have a kitchen to accomodate more appliances, it is defintely on the top of my list of things to buy.
With that said, I knew I needed fresh carrot juice to really make this recipe work. I went to my local organic food store that also sells fresh juice and brought some home. Super helpful and a great idea for those that also don't have access to making fresh vegetable juice at home.
Along with these mimosas I also have a number of other things on the menu for today. For breakfast I'm making bunny pancakes, stay tuned for super cute photos! For dinner I'm making a chilled asparagus soup and Ethan is making an apricot and mustard glazed ham with root vegetables. Dessert which I am most excited for, is a strawberry rhubarb tart!
Have fun cooking, baking, and drink making tomorrow. I'd love to hear what you're making for Easter. If you decide to make these mimosas let me know how it turns out!
