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.
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.
