Vibrant and utterly sippable… give your mimosas a facelift!
When cutting into a blood orange, you wonder how a citrus fruit got to be so colorful. The fruit’s crimson hue is so deep that it looks almost too beautiful to eat! Thankfully, the blood orange delivers as much excitement to the taste buds as it does to the eye – its juicy flesh is sweeter and less acidic than a regular orange.
Spiked with the highly aromatic St. Germain Elderflower liqueur
Here the stunning blood orange gives the classic cocktail a facelift. Spiked with Elderflower liqueur and orange bitters, this mimosa is not only vibrant…it’s also utterly sippable.
Blood orange mimosa

- Fill a shaker two thirds of the way with large ice cubes. Add the orange juice, Elderflower liqueur and orange bitters.
