Happy Monday! (Or unhappy Monday, depending on your hangover...)
We hope everyone had a fun filled safe weekend! Some of you might be craving that morning “recovery drink” but unfortunately have to get back to the weekly grind. Instead of swinging by your local Starbucks, try this at home remedy. We almost guarantee you won’t need coffee...
If you don’t drink alcohol and want to be able to enjoy the same drinks but somehow substituting the booze we have just the treat for you!
** We warn you though that there is A LOT of sugar in this drink!**
We bring to you...Alcohol Free Mimosas!
Get your drink on!
Faux Champagne Recipe:
You will need:
½ Cup Sugar (We used organic white cane sugar otherwise the color of the champagne turns brown, unless you like brown looking champagne then knock yourself out! )
½ Cup Water
½ Cup Orange Juice (Fresh Squeezed or store bought)
½ Cup Fresh Squeezed Grapefruit Juice (1-3 Large Grapefruits)
1 Pint Chilled Ginger Ale
Boil the sugar and water.
Once it starts to boil, remove pot from the heat and let cool.
Add the Orange juice and Grapefruit juice.
Chill until super cold.
Add Ginger Ale when you’re ready to serve!
Alcohol Free Mimosas:
Once you’ve chilled and made your “champagne” you can add more Orange Juice to create a mimosa! We topped off our mimosas with the left over pulp from our Grapefruits!
**Note: This is optional but definitely adds a little somethin’ to the drink!**
