Mimosas – Secret Ingredient: Orangina

If you love mimosas but don’t always have fresh orange juice on hand, try Orangina (one of my favorite secret ingredients for cocktails). This lovely effervescent juice is the original  sparkling citrus juice from France. A combination of concentrated lemon, mandarin and grapefruit juices with a bit of orange pulp. I always have several cans (purchased by the case from Amazon) in my refrigerator. It is my secret ingredient for fabulous mimosas.

And here’s a fun way to make mimosas that will stay chilly cold as you sip them. Freeze Orangina in ice cube trays. Then pop a few Orangina ice cubes into a champagne flute, then fill the flute with your favorite sparkling wine.

Here’s one of my favorite Orangina cocktails. With just 3 ingredients it is so easy to make and so bubbly and refreshing on a hot summer day!
