Friends, are you a high-energy, ambitious entertainer? Or are you like me, and you like simple? Hand raised, simple, please.
Today I’m sharing this Virgin Mimosa beverage recipe, just in time for Mother’s Day and summer entertaining.
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.
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!
