Hello everyone! I hope the last week of this year (Can you believe that?) has been treating you well.
Sorry (not too sorry), but I am with another mimosa cocktail. Because there’s no such thing as too many mimosas, especially during the holiday season (Which lasts until January 2nd in our family.) I’ve already shared this Cranberry Mimosa. And now it’s time for a herbaceous twist!
Indeed, this idea was born when I tried another similar cocktail – Rosemary Orange Cocktail. There’s something irresistibly delicious and elegant in the combination of orange and rosemary.
Orange Rosemary Mimosa
For the cocktail, you will need to make a rosemary infused simple syrup. Other than that, this is a breeze to make. This mimosa is composed of chilled champagne, orange juice, a splash of orange liquor, and infused syrup. The proportion of is up to you, but I would say 1/3 of the juice to 2/3 of the champagne, and a little (about a teaspoon) of the syrup is an optional ratio. Plus a splash of orange liquor if available.
Because of the addition of syrup, you should opt for dry or even extra dry champagne to balance out the extra sweetness. Also, I would recommend freshly squeezed orange juice as it tends to be less sweet than most store-bought.
And if you are looking for more holiday cocktails, here we go.
