Jamaican Mimosa

072213003We continue Mimosas this month on Bette Lee Crosby’s Midweek Mixers. A fun one that takes in the flavors of Jamaica is the Jamaican Mimosa. A Naomi Blackburn original, the Jamaican Mimosa blends the gentle flavors of mango and coconut which is then topped with champagne.

Special note: this will produce 6-8 mimosas.

On that note, here we go:


1 Mango, chopped

1 can Mango nectar

Coconut rum

1 bottle champagne


1)      In a blender, puree chopped mango with mango nectar.

2)      In a shaker, combine 1.5 oz mango mix, 1 oz coconut rum and a small handful of ice. Shake until chilled (30 seconds)

3)      Pour into well chilled champagne flutes and top with champagne. Stir very gently to blend.

4)      If desired, serve with a slice of mango as a garnish.

Bette Lee Crosby

USA Today Bestselling and Award-winning novelist Bette Lee Crosby's books are "Well-crafted storytelling populated by memorable characters caught up in equally memorable circumstances." - Midwest Book Review The Seattle Post Intelligencer says Crosby's writing is, "A quirky mix of Southern flair, serious thoughts about important things in life and madcap adventures." Samantha from Reader's Favorite raves, "Crosby writes the type of book you can't stop thinking about long after you put it down." "Storytelling is in my blood," Crosby laughingly admits, "My mom was not a writer, but she was a captivating storyteller, so I find myself using bits and pieces of her voice in most everything I write." It is the wit and wisdom of that Southern Mama Crosby brings to her works of fiction; the result is a delightful blend of humor, mystery and romance along with a cast of quirky charters who will steal your heart away. Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript. She has since gone on to win nineteen awards for her work; these include: TheRoyal Palm Literary Award, the FPA President's Book Award Gold Medal, Reader's Favorite Award Gold Medal, and the Reviewer's Choice Award.
