Tropical Low-Alcohol Mimosa
So when people think of Mimosas they normally think of Champagne and orange juice, because that is the recipe! However, if you fancy something low-alcohol, than it's time to get creative!
Mimosas named after the flowers of the Mimosa tree. These are native to Australia but have come to be naturalised around the Mediterranean. They are prized as cut flowers for florists, and in Russia and Georgia they are given to women as gifts on International Women's Day, perhaps because the essence is used in perfumes.
A Tropical Mimosa can substitute in mango, pineapple, pomegranate or any number of juices or purée. A Tropical low alcohol Mimosa has to substitute out the Champagne for something else, in this case Aldi's Zero Point Zero Sparkling Zero Alcohol. A surprisingly sweet and light non-alcoholic sparkling drink
3oz. (90ml) Tropical juice/purée
3oz. (90ml) Zero Point Zero
2 dashes Beara Bitters Orange
(optional 1tsp. Grand Marnier)
Fill Champagne flute with 3oz. orange juice
Top with Zero Point Zero
(optional, if using, add in tsp of Grand Marnier for added depth of orange flavour)
Float two dashes of Beara Bitters Orange on top
Enjoy with brunch!
