Back to School Tea: Mimosas

Yes, actually these are really Buck’s Fizzes instead of Mimosas because of the addition of grenadine. I think the pink and yellow colors are much more evocative of mimosa flowers and much prettier than plain Mimosas.

3 parts Champagne
1 part orange juice
Splash of grenadine

Add orange juice first to the glass, then the Champagne and last gently pour in a bit of grenadine. Both the juice and the Champagne should be chilled. Don’t make these ahead of serving time or you’ll lose the bubbles.

If you prefer not to use Champagne, a fun and pretty drink can still be made using sparkling grape juice, sparkling water or ginger ale.
