We’re Adam and Joanne from inspiredtaste.net and welcome to our kitchen. Today we will be showing you how to make
one of our favorite drinks the mimosa. Mimosa’s are made from orange juice and
sparkling wine. If you can use freshly squeezed orange juice. We know it seems a little over the top
but when you consider half of the drink… is made from juice, you want the best. Freshly squeezed orange juice is a little lighter, a bit tart and more delicate… than anything you can find at the store. You will need about three cups which means you need to juice eight to ten oranges. Remember you can use store-bought juice if you need to. Once you have three cups, strain it… then refrigerate. It’s really important that you are serving
the orange juice when it’s cold… no one likes a warm mimosa. For the wine… you want it to be dry and not sweet… we usually spend twelve to fifteen dollars on the wine… your best bet is to look for Cava, coming from Spain or an American sparkling wine… that’s around twelve dollars. A dry Prosecco is a great option too. Just like the orange juice you want it to be cold… when you serve… Pop the cork, we like using a towel so the cork
doesn’t fly across the room. Add the sparkling wine to the glasses first… try pouring at a 45 degree angle. This helps to keep some of those bubbles in control… then do the same thing for the orange juice. if you notice that the mimosa is about to overflow, stop pouring, set it down… and let the bubbles go down before topping off with more orange juice.
