Create a style of hosting that works for you
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.
What is the difference between a Bellini and a mimosa?
For a Mimosa, you typically add orange juice and Cointreau to a champagne flute (or tall glass) and stir to mix. You then fill the glass with chilled champagne or sparkling wine. For this recipe (non-alcoholic) you add limeade and Sprite!
The Bellini is a drink similar to a Mimosa, but it’s made with a peach puree. YUM!
How to make a mimosa
Normally to make 1 mimosa cocktail, in a champagne flute, you combine chilled sparkling wine, chilled orange juice, and 1 tablespoon Grand Marnier or triple sec.
But to make a Virgin Mimosa, I’ve changed it up to orange juice, Limeade (or lemonade), a splash of “sparkly” and then don’t forget to add sugar to the rim.
So refreshing and good!
