Last week I told you about buying some blood oranges from the market. They were amazing! Over the the weekend I was slicing some up for my son when I got to thinking that a blood orange mimosa would be perfect for an Easter brunch or when ever really. So I made myself one…
But these oranges were so pretty, I couldn’t stop photographing the fruit. Gosh, I’m so weird.
To prepare a blood orange mimosa you’ll need
Prosecco or other sparkling white wine (or champagne) well chilled.
Juice from fresh blood oranges. I like mine with the pulp but if you don’t then use a strainer.
Sugar. If your oranges are on the tart side mix in a bit of sugar to taste. (optional)
Orange liquer (optional)
Combine fresh blood orange juice with sugar and orange liqueur if you’re using these ingredients. in a large measuring cup and stir to combine. To serve, pour the blood orange juice into the bottom of Champagne glasses until about half full, top off with Prosecco.
