Poor Man's Mimosa

Poor Man's Mimosa

  • 1 bottle of white wine (stay away from buttery or creamy Chardonnay's)
  • 1 1/2 cups orange juice
  • 1/2 cup sparkling water
  • fresh mint for garnish
  1. pour wine into carafe
  2. stir in one cup of the orange juice and all of the sparkling water
  3. taste and if still is heavy on the wine taste add remaining orange juice
  4. serve in tumbler and garnish with fresh mint
I first discovered this a few years ago when I was still living on campus at NU. I wanted some OJ and had some leftover wine. I wasnt until my last international flight that I reintroduced myself to this drink. I got some looks from the flight attendant when I ordered it but those looks faded away with my first sip....yummy. Add a splash of strawberry nectar for a great summery taste. I hope you enjoy!
