Mimosas

Here begins less of a recipe -- and more of a "recipe". Mimosas are all about presentation, in fact. Make them your signature celebration drink by creating a bountiful spread where guests can craft their own cocktails. Offer mini carafes, personally sized bottles, and colorful accoutrements for brilliantly bubbly beverages. 

Yield: 8-10 glasses , Prep time: 10 minutes , Cook time: none

Ingredients

Instructions

1. Chill your bubbly. Line up interesting glassware like champagne flutes, glass teacups, even rocks glasses. Set up a bar of fresh fruit juices like orange juice, grapefruit juice, and pomegranate juice.
2. Spread out garnishes like pomegranate seeds, thinly sliced citrus, and even fresh herbs.
3. Pop your bottles and invite guests to fill glasses to their liking -- more juice, more bubbles, extra garnish, etc..

Tips + Tricks

**Classic mimosas are made with champagne, but you should pour whichever kind of bubbly you prefer -- champagne, beer (the "Champagne of Beers", even?), or (nonalcoholic) sparkling grape juice. We like to pop Lindemans Gueuze Cuvée René because it's tart and funky and oh-so fun to serve one bottle at a time.
