MID-WEEK MIXERS by Naomi Blackburn

070413 009This month is Mimosa Month on  Midweek Mixers found only on Bette Lee Crosby’s Words, Wit and Wisdom.
I have to admit that regular mimosas bore me to tears. Although, they are one of my son’s favorite drinks, I could really do without them. I like the concept though and wanted to do something a bit more fruity or with nice varieties of tastes.

This month I will be featuring a number of Naomi Blackburn originals including:

  • The Citrus Mimosa
  • The Hawaiian Mimosa
  • The Jamaican Mimosa
  • The Holiday Mimosa-a step above the traditional mimosa

So, toss aside that orange juice and come along for the ride.
The Citrus Mimosa is a nice blend of citrus fruits partnered with triple sec and a pink moscato. There result is a nice sweet drink that has a slight bite of grapefruit flavor to it.  Without further adieu…

The Citrus Mimosa
Ingredients:
1 grapefruit, juiced 1/2 lemon juiced 1/2 lime, juiced 2 ounces triple sec Pink Moscato, VERY CHILLED sugar for rims
Directions:
1) Rim champagne flutes with sugar and place in freezer to set. This can be done ahead of time.
2) In a very large shaker or a pitcher, combine juices and triple sec. Shake well. Chill until ready to use.
3) Pour 2 oz of juice in prepared flute and top with the moscato.
4) Garnish with lemon and lime slices, if desired
