|The Refreshing FoMosa|
Are you getting ready to have a fun-time brunch or get- together with friends and family? Will children be present or guests who do not "drink"? Consider the FoMosa (or Faux Mimosa). I had some mandarin orange sparkling water and decided to top off a glass of orange juice with it. The result was a refreshing drink reminiscent of the actual Mimosa cocktail (minus the champagne of course).
To make the FoMosa . . .
Enjoy with a glass 1/2 filled with chopped or crushed ice.
Fill your glass 3/4 with OJ and 1/4 with Mandarin Orange Sparkling Water (or you can mix it in equal parts for more "ZIP"!)
Stir and garnish with an orange slice or twist
For the REAL Mimosa Cocktail . . .
Add equal parts of chilled OJ and Champagne (or other sparkling white wine, although champagne is best)
in a tall champagne flute. Stir, do not shake. Garnished with raspberries or cherries although I like sticking with the "orange" theme personally.
This easy FoMosa recipe is sure to be a hit. Enjoy it with breakfast or when you are craving a refreshing beverage on a hot Summer day.
Note: Do not use Mandarin Seltzer Water. The flavor is much different due to the "bite" of the seltzer. For best results choose a Sparkling Water beverage. Since Frugal Design is all about being "frugal" I've switched from Florida's Natural Orange Juice to the more economical Walmart "Great Value" brand. Sure it tasted a bit "watered down" to me at first but now it tastes just fine or I wouldn't recommend it. Like anything else, you get used to it. Put that $1.00 savings toward your bottle of sparkling water for the above treat!
