Mimosa for mom.

9 May

Happy Mothers’ Day to all you moms out there! Celebrating your status as a mom – or celebrating your mom – maybe both? A mimosa is the perfect way to honor your role as mom – or other moms in your life. I found this very basic recipe in The Silver Palate Cookbook (1979) by Julee Rosso & Sheila Lukins. Note, you don’t have to buy fancy champagne to make this cocktail. I keep small bottles of California Extra Dry Champagne in my frig – for occasions like Mothers’ Day or other celebratory brunches.  I love this drink – and note, it’s traditionally served in a tall champagne flute.

This cookbook is still available on Amazon and in bookstores.



Fresh orange juice

Fresh mint leaves (garnish), optional

Fill each glass two-thirds full with Champagne. Top each off with orange juice and garnish.
