My friend Joy made a beautiful breakfast-for-dinner spread at our last bunco game that consisted of hand made crepes with a variety of sweet and savory toppings, authentic southern grits, and sausage rolls. She asked me to make mimosas for the occasion.
It’s about half and half when it comes to people in the group that want to imbibe so I needed something that would make everyone happy. I created a mimosa punch that tastes amazing without alcohol and serves as the base for a traditional mimosa as well.
I like this so much that I made it for Easter breakfast this morning. It really is a crowd pleaser, and so easy!
All you do is take 4 cups of orange juice, 3/12 cups of cranberry juice, and 3 cups of pineapple juice:
You mix those into a large punch bowl and add a 2 liter bottle of ginger ale. You can use regular or diet.
Then take a couple of star fruit. If you haven’t used these beautiful babies you are missing out.
They look kinda odd, but it’s when you slice into them that the magic happens.
The star shaped slices are simply irresistible.
Float a few of these twinklers in your punch bowl and use a few to garnish the glasses.
Either pour the punch straight into champagne flutes as is, or if you are feeling like a little sparkle, fill the glasses about half way with some pink Moscato champagne before filling them the rest of the way with the punch.
I like Barefoot Bubbly’s variety of pink Moscato. It’s cheap and tastes like dessert.
Just look at this pretty little drink.
The orange, yellow, and red colors of the juices mix together to create a stunning pink concoction that is sure to compliment any breakfast or brunch, especially a special one served on Easter Sunday.
Cheers to all and may we remember the things Easter represents as we celebrate with family, friends, and cocktails!
