Make a Blood Orange Mimosa for brunch or just a fun morning cocktail! Blood orange juice makes this mimosa recipe stand out from the rest!
A Morning Cocktail Recipe
Yes, I said morning cocktail. You don’t have to wait for a brunch or a special occasion to have a cocktail in the morning, do you?
Well I don’t. When the weekend finally comes, that’s reason enough to celebrate for me. And what’s better for celebrating than champagne AND tequila?
You could swap out regular orange juice for the blood orange juice if you can’t find any, but I grabbed this blood orange juice right in my regular grocery store! Or if you can find blood oranges grab them and squeeze a few.
Once you have all the necessary ingredients, making this drink couldn’t be easier. Just pour the blood orange juice in the bottom of a champagne flute, or make these up in high ball glasses for volume, totally up to you – then add in the Don Julio Blanco and top off with champagne.
I know a lot of people substitute prosecco in drinks like this (including me) and that’s totally fine. But for this one I’d see about trying actual champagne. Real champagne isn’t usually as sweet as prosecco and I think it works a lot better for this cocktail since you’ve already got the sweet blood orange juice.
Don’t worry, it’s the weekend. Feel free to take a nap after lunch!
