Sip Sparkling Champagne & Kiss Me at Midnight

Disclosure- I received the mentioned product courtesy of the sponsor for the purpose of this review. All opinions are genuine, based on my experience with the product, and have not been influenced by promotional items.


I'm not a drinker, but it wouldn't be a celebration without a little sip of an adult beverage to ring in the New Year. I usually buy a bottle of wine, take one sip, declare it nasty, then pass it over to Jason to finish off. I know, I know. Wine enthusiasts are probably shaking their head in disgust right about now, huh? I just never acquired a taste for alcohol, I suppose. When we hosted Christmas breakfast, my niece insisted that we have mimosas on hand, so I went to Costco to purchase a few bottles of champagne. I have never had a mimosa before, but I'm up for trying anything once. Surprisingly, I found that I actually really liked the champagne/orange juice combination! Since we aren't complete lushes here, I did have an extra bottle of champagne leftover that I needed to figure out what to do with. I knew New Year's was fast approaching, so off I went to Golden Blossom Honey to find a good recipe to put that last bottle to good use. There I found this recipe for Sparkling Champagne Cocktails.

Sparkling Champagne Cocktail

What drew me to this recipe was it sounded a lot like the flavor of mimosas. A yummy orange syrup combined with sparkling champagne is just the ticket to a happy new year, indeed! Garnish each glass with a strip of orange peel for an extra classy flare.

Ingredients

1 naval orange, thinly sliced

  5. Only if you have organic oranges, otherwise it will be champagne seasoned with some pesticides and wax and whoknowswhatelse :)
    I don't get the taste of wine either, it is always nasty to me.
    Lovely photos, lovely set, lovely combo of colours!
    Try to put some blueberry juice or syrup into the champagne too :)

    Happy New Year tomorrow, I can't believe it is already here!

    1. Dahlink, we always try to buy organic fruits and veggies when possible. Thankfully, we now have more organic stores popping up in my area, so it isn't as difficult to find it anymore. I do wish I had my own orange tree. That would be a great perk of moving way down south.
      Blueberry juice would definitely be a scrumptious option. Strawberries too!

    2. yes, that would be a dream, I know people whose families have summer houses down in Dalmatia at the Adriatic sea (it was part of our old country, so many people have condos there, companies and factories even had their resorts there where their workers would go to vacations during summer before the war) and they all have orange, fig and lemon trees in their garden. I just can't imagine having dozens of crates filled with citruses and figs each summer all yours! Just imagine. It is like potatoes here.

    I like the idea of preparing a syrup first.

  16. I had to laugh pretty hard at your wine thing. I hate wine as well, not sure how people are so obsessed with it.

  19. We bought alcohol. A lot of it wasn't drank. I don't know what to do with it all. I just can't drink very much anymore. It doesn't work out for me with all my allergies. Maybe I'll just make loaves of beer bead. Ha!

  20. Happy New Year! I LOVE mimosas, and will be trying that recipe for sure. Although, it will probably be next time we have company - we don't drink often either, but it's nice to have a fun, fancy drink with guests. For our New Years drink this year, we took one bottle of sparkling white wine, mixed with one bottle of ginger ale, and partially defrosted frozen strawberries mixed in with it. Sooo good!!

    1. Happy New Year! That does sound like a delicious sparkling wine drink. I bet the strawberries gave it a nice, sweet flavor. My husband brought home a bottle of Cinnamon Sugar Vodka that I had to try. It was pretty yummy, but since I don't drink, I wasn't doing so hot after 1/2 of a shot haha. However, I'm keeping it in the freezer for the nights I can't sleep because I was so ready for bed once it kicked in!

    2. Oooh yum - that sounds good! I can't do shots...it's been maaaaany years, and then over Thanksgiving weekend my husband and our best friends thought it would be fun to do lemon drops - vodka shots followed by sugar coated lemons. Well...mine ended up doing a round trip. LOL - gave everyone a good laugh as I choked and teared up...but it was pretty funny. I won't do a repeat anytime soon, though.

  22. I am the polar opposite, I have prefer my 'mimosa' without the juice! LOL I prefer my bubbly 'straight no chaser' I'm hardcore and old school that way! :-)
