SIMPLE Christmas Mimosas

SIMPLE CHRISTMAS MIMOSAS with champage, cranberry juice and sugared fresh cranberries

This Christmas Mimosa is sure to get your Christmas morning started off right or why not make a batch to serve up alongside your Holiday brunch with family and friends.

Mimosas are a great brunch drink.  They’re not too heavy.  They come served in a cute thin flute and they don’t fill you up like a heavier drink could.   So we wanted to take this classic drink and give it a little festive flair.

A splash of cranberry juice creates a nice fruity base for this festive drink.  You can certainly use pomegranate or a combination of cranberry and a splash of O.J.

The real festive part of this drink though are the sugared cranberries which are nothing more than a simple syrup poured over them and then rolled in a little granulated sugar.

For an even more festive look, try garnishing with a sprig of rosemary.

WHAT TO PAIR WITH A CHRISTMAS MIMOSA

With mimosas being a classic brunch drink the best pairings would be simple scrambled eggs, fruits of any kind, especially strawberries or why not try our Asparagus wrapped in Prosciutto with Cheese?

They are the perfect finger food, low carb, low calorie and simply devine!
