We all love a good mimosa, right?! And brunch too, yes? I actually lament the loss of amazing two-brunch weekends in New York more than almost anything since I moved here to Savannah. Of course, I’m sitting on my porch swing, writing this in 70 degree weather, so I suppose I can’t complain too much.
Anyway, back to brunch! Again, mimosas are great. But I feel like this classic cocktail might need a robust makeover. I call it “Mimosa Squared”. Simple, yes, but to the point as well. And damn if it isn’t fantastic.
*3 parts prosecco
*1 part bourbon
*1 part orange juice (fancy oj, please!)
*1 part ginger beer (I know, I know…I’m obsessed)
*Dash of plum bitters
Seriously…it’s awesome. And if you ever host a brunch, it’s guaranteed to knock the socks off of all of your friends. That’s an Amateur Cocktailer guarantee, dammit. And the great thing is, it’s not just for brunch. It works for dinner parties too! And casual social gatherings. And really, whenever. It’s delicious in any situation. But it’s especially special for brunch, so just go with it.
That’s all for now. Back tomorrow for more!
