Blood Orange and Elderflower Mimosa


Long winter weekends are calling for these Blood Orange Elderflower Mimosas. If you’ve not had blood oranges before you probably see why they’re so named already. They’ve got a gorgeous ruby red center and a more complex depth of flavor than regular oranges with a refreshing tartness and slight bitter undertones. Elderflower liqueur lends lovely floral notes that lifts the delicious the deep flavor of these oranges perfectly and tastes amazing with bubbly! Perfect for holiday breakfasts and brunch parties. Up your mimosa game and brighten any cold and wintry morning with these elegant cocktails. 

Serves: 4

Time: 10-15 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup fresh squeezed blood orange juice, about 4-5 blood oranges (keep in the fridge before or after juicing to chill.)

  • 1 bottle champagne or Prosecco, chilled
  • Blood orange slices for garnish

Directions:

Pour 1/4 cup of the blood orange juice and 1 ounce of elderflower liqueur in each champagne glass. Fill the glasses with the champagne or Prosecco and garnish with a slice or two of gorgeous blood orange slices.
