Blushing Mimosas – A dash of pineapple juice and grenadine, adds a lovely twist to this brunch time classic.
One tradition we have started in our family is serving mimosas on holiday mornings, after coffee of course! Something about the tiny bubbles puts us all in a celebratory mood to start the holiday. I came across these blushing mimosas in Southern Living and have been hooked ever since.
Valentine’s Day is this weekend so I am thinking about making these mimosas and chocolate waffles for Jay and me. We usually wait until the following weekend to go out and celebrate to avoid the crowds. Wow, that sounds old doesn’t it?
A little pineapple juice, splash of grenadine, orange juice and of course some champagne or sparkling wine and you have a beautiful kinda hot pink mimosa. I like to add a few cherries also for color. If you want to make it non-alcoholic, just replace ginger-ale for the champagne.
