Friday, September 22, 2006 Breakfast and Brunch Recipes: Mimosas

Shannon sent in all sorts of amazing breakfast/brunch recipes recently and I thought it was time to share it! :) Take time this weekend to try a few of these -- I'm sure your friends and family will appreciate it!

Here's the email Shannon sent to me...and the three mimosa recipes she sent along with it.

We served most of these at our 1st annual Grand Mother's Day Brunch when my mom, aunty, cousin, step-grandma, and my in laws came for brunch. It was for moms only!! WOWSA...what a spread!! Also, Wal-Mart has a coffee I just love. It's called Chocolate Velvet. My favorite is Chocolate Hazelnut by Gherardelli's, but I have a hard time getting it around here. This went great with our brunch!! We made it a bit strong, and it was fantastic!!

Basic Mimosa
1oz Orange Juice
3oz Champagne
Make sure everything is good and cold!! In a tall flute glass, pour first the Orange Juice, then the Champagne. The Champagne with its alcohol is thicker and will mix down into the OJ. Do not stir - you'll lose the bubbles!

Mimosas - Variation 1
1/2 oz Grand MarnierĀ® orange liqueur
1 splash orange juice
Pour grand marnier into a champagne flute. Fill almost to the top with champagne and top off with fresh orange juice.

Mimosas Recipes - Variation 2 Peach Mimosas
2 cups peach nectar, chilled
1 1/3 cups orange juice, chilled
2/3 cup grenadine syrup
1 (750-milliliter) bottle Brut champagne, chilled
Combine peach nectar and orange juice in a pitcher, and stir well. Spoon 1 tablespoon grenadine syrup into each of 10 champagne glasses.Add 1/3 cup of the orange juice mixture to each glass, and top with chilled champagne. Serve immediately.
