Strawberry Mimosa

I love mimosas.  The combination of orange juice and champagne, all rolled into one delicious beverage?  Sign me up.  Usually whenever I’ve had one, it’s at a family gathering.  Whether it’s a bridal shower, baby shower, or any other female gathering during the day (and sometimes even in the evenings), it’s always been a girl thing.  But hey, I think they should be for all adults.  They’re so refreshing!

Several years ago, my husband and I were in the grocery store, snooping through the wine section and looking at different bottles of champagne…and there it was – strawberry champagne.  We both looked at each other and said, “Hmm, really?  Let’s get it.”  So, we tried it out.  I’ve never really been a huge fan of champagne, but would drink it for a special occasion or event (or when it’s mixed in a mimosa), but I could easily drink strawberry champagne at any event.  When I made the Orange Julius the other day, the orange in the drink made me think of mimosas, then I started to think about using the strawberry champagne instead of the regular.  It was a chain of events.  But, I also love pineapple and orange juice mixed together.  Why not?  I thought to myself as I was putting the ingredients together in my head.  Let’s give it a shot.  I was just talking to my cousin earlier, and told her that usually when I make a beverage when experimenting with recipes, I’ll just take a sip and store the rest in the refrigerator…not this time.  I ended up bringing it back upstairs with me to finish it off.  Good thing it’s only a total of 4 ounces in this glass.
