Excellent. I brought all the ingredients to a brunch today and acted as "bartender". I used extra dry champagne, normal ol' orange juice, and a homemade grapefruit liqueur I had lying around (put de-pithed grapefruit peels in 1 1/2 cups grapefruit juice and a fifth of vodka in a ball jar for 1 month, then strained and aged another two months). They looked beautiful, tasted great (not too sweet because of the dry champagne), and it was a great way to use the liqueur!
I used Grand Marnier and what an amazing addition that is! It's a much more elegant mimosa than the typcial OJ and Champagne combo. Wonderful!
This is a great recipe! We had a mimosa party and planted Mimosa pudica seeds to grow our our TickleMe plant. What at blast we had. The TickleMe Plant is the only plant that moves and closes its leaves when you Tickle it. http://www.ticklemeplant.com
So good and so easy, what could be better than Bubbles for Breakfast! DH made Eggs Benedict for breakfast and surprised me by serving this along with it. We used dry champagne and fresh oj and followed the recipe exactly. So good, didn't know what I'd been missing.
I love mimosas, but this was even better. We simplified the recipe by not measuring the Triple Sec (we just splashed a little in each glass), using regular old orange juice, and skipping the orange zest, and the recipe was still fantastic. I will make this again and again. Thanks for posting.
Mmmm... love these!
This very very very good. I have never had a mimosa before! I can't wait to share this at my next brunch.
We had these morning for our Valentines breakfast. We used the triple sec since it was what we had on hand. We loved them!
Very tasty mimosa! I used Cointreau and blood orange juice. Mmm! Thanks Jellyqueen!
1574 calories in one serving? Without the Triple Sec? Those champagne flutes must be HUGE! Good thing they're low-fat.
