Orange-Pomegranate Mimosa with Grenadine

Sharing is caring!

Wow. I can’t believe another year has almost passed. Though we have had a string of bad luck, it was definitely one of the best summers that I can remember! The weather was incredible, my garden was spectacular (and still feeding us!), and we barely had to use the A/C all summer long!

Autumn exploded with gorgeous colors, and so far so good, this winter has been one of the mildest on record! We had a lovely Thanksgiving, and a peaceful and quiet Christmas, and now I’m just looking forward to a brand new year and fresh start!

Overall, I think my blog has done very well and has been so much fun! To date, you all now have 358 recipes to choose from, and all posted in just a year and a half! Whew! I hope that you have enjoyed them as much as I have had fun creating them! And I have so many more wonderful recipes and fun ideas to share with you! 

Like this extra special mimosa! Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s Eve, (and any other excuse I can think of to enjoy these!), are a fun tradition at our house in the morning. It starts the holiday off with a little bounce in your step and tingle in your toes, puts you into a SUPER good mood 😉 , and takes the rush and the stress of the day out before it even starts! 😉 

This year I decided to bump up the fun and add a little Grenadine and a splash of ginger ale to them. And now I don’t want them any other way! Grenadine is a syrup that is mostly made from pomegranate juice, sugar and water, but most brands actually don’t have very much pomegranate in them at all. So try to find a good brand and read the label of ingredients. In a pinch, some of the common brands work just fine too though, such as one of the most popular brands called, “Rose’s”.

I love Grenadine, and that’s what I always use for pink lemonade and subsequently use in my Pink Lemonade Bars. So, in thinking about pink lemonade, I thought to add it to my orange juice and Champagne, and it was an instant hit! As the bottle of Champagne slowly disappeared and was looking mighty low, I stretched out my last mimosa with a splash of ginger ale on top and……omg…..it was over-the-top incredibly delicious! Like a pretty in pink mimosa punch! 😀 

Not only is this a fun treat for two or a festive holiday party with friends and family, this would also be amazingly fun for a brunch or Bridal Shower! Float orange slices topped with maraschino cherries on top of the punch, and even add a little orange sherbet if you’d like. 

So I hope this new year finds you happy and healthy, and that you toast with this lovely Orange-Pomegranate Mimosa at midnight! It’s really fantastic, and even just one bottle of Champagne goes quite a long way! 

 

 

Have a safe and wonderful New Year’s Eve! And I’ll see you all tomorrow for one last post for 2014! ~Kelly
