In honor of Mother’s Day and spring and summer season, enjoy this Virgin Mimosa drink for entertaining, garnished with a slice of tangergine.

Virgin Mimosa

Friends, are you a high-energy, ambitious entertainer? Or are you like me, and you like simple? Hand raised, simple, please. I’ve updated the photos for this Virgin Mimosa Drink post, just in time for Mother’s Day and summer entertaining, if you’re planning a party!

Are you a party thrower that loves a ton of food, a mindset that the more people who come, the merrier the time will be?

For me, life is rich and delicious, and I really like a lot of people in our home.  But I’ve also learned that piling too much on my plate is not always fun. Having gone from entertaining almost every weekend to maybe once a month now, is perfect for me. Throw in a little bit of hospitality here and there, taking a meal, bringing a potluck dish, doing a little something for others.

You really have to figure out what hosting looks like for you and your family, and then do it! Create a style that works for you.

Celebration and being exhuberant is a wonderful thing. And Mother’s Day just might be that simple party that you are wanting to host.

  1. I love that these are virgin!! Very fun for us we are one, under 21 and two, not into the alcoholic drinks anyway! Very fun and springy recipe!

  2. Lovely spring drink, Sandy & Jess! So pretty, too. Thank you for sharing. Pinning!

  3. What a beautiful drink! I can’t wait to try a glass for myself!

  4. I loved virgin drinks when pregnant. Mimosas are a great one to have around.

  5. Ooh so pretty, thanks!!
    And congratulations in advance… What a beautiful time of year to welcome a baby. xo

  6. Thanks for posting this simple recipe. I craved oranges and orange juice my entire pregnancy too! Also had a baby girl. I am not really much of a drinker, so this is a great alternative to the alcoholic version.

  7. These look yummy and I am all about simple hospitality. 
    Happy Mothers Day to you Sandy!!!! 

  8. Love your updated pics. This recipe sounds really good too. I just went to send my clam chowder recipe to someone and was like, “how do I not have pictures…has it been that long since I’ve posted it”….time to re-do. lol.

    I like lots of people but I also really much rather prefer a bit smaller group.

    My youngest works on Mothers Day so today after both girls get off work (they are working at the same coffee shop) we are heading into Portland for a few hours.
