Relax Your Mind

I’m not prompting drinking at all but, as a college student our days of relief usually consist of getting wasted and waking up all types of hours wondering what happened the night before. Influenced by the words of Nasir Jones “doing this, that and third But chill, past the Andre and let’s lay I bag bitches up at John Jay and hit a mantinee” sipping Andre with orange juice. Thus helping us discover mimosas! Fancy…no within our college budget yes.

Here are a few recipes for Mimosas: The Traditional Mimosa

It doesn’t get any easier than this, the basic Mimosa recipe calls for a bottle of your favorite champagne and orange juice. Two dashes of each and you are ready to celebrate a wedding, graduation, Mother’s day, whatever the occasion – nothing says “fancy brunch” like a Mimosa.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Ingredients:

  • Champagne (1 bottle)
  • Orange Juice (1 carton

The Passion Fruit Mimosa

This recipe takes the Basic Mimosa and turns it up a notch! Once you’ve enjoyed a Passion Fruit Mimosa, it is unlikely that you’ll settle for the standard OJ and bubbles during your next celebratory brunch.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 5 minutes

Ingredients:

  • Champagne (1 bottle)
  • Passion Fruit Juice (1 carton)

Preparation:

Fill half of a champagne flute with chilled champagne and top off with chilled passion fruit juice, gently stir. For added flare, slice up a strawberry or an orange to decorate the rim of each flute. Enjoy! * Also delightful over ice

The Mama Mimosa

Take your traditional Mimosa recipe and add a delicate splash of an orange liquer topped with crushed raspberry ice – this Mimosa is not called the “Mama Mimosa” for nothing!

Ingredients:

  • Orange Juice (1 half gallon carton)
  • Champagne or Sparkling Wine ( 750 mL Bottle)
  • Orange Liquer
  • 1/2 cup fresh raspberries

Preparation:

Pour the carton of chilled orange juice into a 3 quart pitcher and then add the full bottle of chilled Champagne or sparkling wine. Next add 2 shots of orange liquer and stir the orange juice, Champagne and orange liquer until thoroughly mixed. Just before serving add the raspberry ice* to the pitcher and pour about 4 ounces of the mimosa mix into Champagne flutes or if you’d like to show off more of the raspberry ice pour the mimosa mix into regular wine glasses. * Raspberry ice – crumble fresh raspberries and place the crumbles into narrow ice cube trays, fill with water and freeze. Adds a very nice touch to any Mimosa!
