Mimosa Bar

by Erin

Step aside orange juice, there’s room for other kinds of fruit juices when it comes to mimosas. Which will you try first?

Mimosa Bar 1
‘Tis the season for mimosas! I set up this mimosa bar for Easter brunch but there are far more opportunities for it in the near future. Mother’s Day perhaps? Or just any ol’ weekend? I trust you can find a reason without my assistance. The real question is, have you ever had a mimosa with a juice other than orange? Sure the staple is delicious but you should really mix it up some time. For my first mimosa bar, in addition to orange I had peach-mango and pomegrante-blueberry. And then for fruit garnishes I used blood oranges (from Limoneira), pineapple, and strawberries.

When I told my friends I was setting up a mimosa bar for brunch they didn’t anticipate what was in store. Admittedly the spread did look pretty impressive, yet it took little effort to set up and therefore might become a staple for future brunch gatherings. I simply poured the juices into clear glass carafes, placed fresh fruit in ramekins, and used one of my homemade cookie sheet chalkboards for the sign/directions. Not that they needed directions on how to make a mimosa as my friends are seasoned professionals but it looked fun at least.

It was a V8 juice combo so it’s basically a vegetable ;-)
