There will be a lot of champagne flowing over the next few days! Whether you are toasting on New Year's Eve or sipping Mimosas at your New Year's Day brunch, it's always fun to serve and drink.
Here is a tasty twist on the traditional Mimosa.
Yield: 8 cups (serving size: 1/2 cup)
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup water
- 3 cups fresh orange juice (about 10 oranges)
- 2 cups Champagne or sparkling wine
- 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
- Lime wedges (optional)
Combine sugar and water in a large saucepan, and bring to a boil, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Remove from heat, and cool completely. Add orange juice, Champagne, and lime juice; pour into an 11 x 7-inch baking dish. Cover and freeze for 8 hours or until firm. Remove mixture from freezer; let stand 10 minutes. Scrape the entire mixture with a fork until fluffy, and garnish with lime wedges, if desired.
I hope everyone has a fabulous New Year's! Welcome 2010!
I am taking a short break for vacation but will be back very soon! See ya next year!
