This weekend my best gal pals and I are galavanting around St Louis eating donut holes and doing sake bombs (okay, just one) and having an awesome time. This is all in honor of a wedding coming up in a month! Part of this fun weekend is throwing the bride a brunch themed shower. (Of course I love to throw a party focused on one of my favorite meals). This recipe for a mimosa float was made just for this occasion.
I wanted to do more than your average mimosa. (Partially because I’m not a huge fan of orange juice.) So, this is made with sorbet and fresh strawberries. Since I’m throwing it in a town I’m not familiar with I went ahead and got all the ingredients at Trader Joes, since they’re everywhere and have the same food at most of their locations.
I went with their cheapest sparkling wine, the Blanc de Blancs Brut ($4.99 you can’t go wrong), a pint of their mango sorbet ($3.99) and some fresh strawberries ($3). For pretty cheap you can make a lovely, refreshing and sparkly drink. Feel free to customize with your favorite sparkling wine or different sorbet flavors. (Maybe a granita and grapes?)
- Sparkling wine (Trader Joe’s Blanc de Blancs)
- Mango sorbet
- Strawberries, washed and sliced
1) Put a few strawberry slices in the bottom of each glass. Pour in 3-4 oz of wine and then add a large scoop of mango sorbet. Serve immediately and enjoy!
