Pomegranate Mimosa

by Erin

Get the champagne ready! Whether you are hosting brunch or toasting the new year, change things up with this pomegranate mimosa.

Pomegranate Mimosa 1

I’m not usually a big fan of champagne, unless orange juice is involved. Ah yes mimosas, the drink of brunches. In fact when my lab mates and I were in Berlin we managed to order a couple mimosas for “brunch” despite our waitress looking at us like we lost our minds when we described it as a drink that was half champagne and half orange juice. Silly Americans.

This time of year champagne comes out in full force, namely in a couple days for the celebration of another New Year. But who says you have to toast with pure champagne? I say mix some fruit juice in there, have some fun, and dare someone to stop you. I mixed in some pomegranate to make it seasonally appropriate.

I’ve had many mimosas in my day…but never one with pomegranate juice! Good call.
