Mimosa Pitcher Cocktail – The classic and refreshingly delicious Mimosa Cocktail made with Orange Juice and Prosecco.
And this is what I call a MOMOSA. My Sundays BFF. 😉
Hi Hey YO! Happiest of Fridays!
Welcome to the one time of year when it’s totally acceptable, even encouraged, to drink and get drunk at 11 a.m. That’s right, my friends… it’s totally time to drink spiked Orange Juice.High Five!!
Mother’s Day, I could hug you! And, Brunching is SO my jam!
So. Being that Mommy’s Day is in two days, I thought I should share my very delicious go-to Brunch Cocktail AND my thoughts on Mommyhood. Mmmmkay? Cool.
Living in this Mom-world for the past 5 years has been gosh darn amazing, to say the least. These girls of mine have made this lady one extremely happy individual, and have completely changed the way I look at Motherhood. Like, WHOA!
It’s hard – read: temper tantrums. I can’t stand them!
It’s easy – read: dropping them off at Grandmas and not coming back for a couple hours.
It’s painful – ER trips. ’nuff said. :(((
It’s rewarding – Honest and loving hugs and kisses all the time! ♥
Also? …it’s Frozen in one room, it’s Brave in the other room…
It’s the Gummy Bear song on one tablet, it’s Barbie and Ken on the other…
…it’s scoring 6 goals in one game (GO ANA!!)
and, it’s finally putting the Princess training potty to its intended use, and not as a performance stage where you can stand and sing Let It Go all.day.long.
Now, I am going to talk to you about my beloved Mimosa. Yes, I am.
I’ve seen this cocktail botched up one too many times and I feel that it’s my duty to make it right. Well, as right as Paul McCartney’s personal caterer makes it.
Sidenote. A while back, I met Paul McCartney’s (English) caterer and all we talked about was food. I didn’t ask one single question about Paul…didn’t even dawn on me. All I wanted to know about was Yorkshire Pudding, tea time, and brunch foods.
Before I lose you, long story short, there was only 3 requirements for his perfect Mimosa:
1. Prosecco (don’t even think about going with a cheap bottle of Champs)
2. Chilled and freshly squeezed Orange Juice (Uhmmm… I skip that part and go with the 50% less sugar OJ)
3. Splash of Cranberry Juice
I also recommend filling the pitcher to the rim with slices of citrus fruits for presentation and added flavor.
And that’s it!
CHEERS and ENJOY!
