If you are simply looking for a way to celebrate any occasion without alcohol, this faux-mosa is everything you need!
There is always something to celebrate in life. If your social calendar is as busy as mine, then you know what I am talking about. Weekend brunches can pack on the pounds, especially when you have one too many mimosas. I had to come up with another way to celebrate with my friends when it came to brunch. Being the Healthinista that I am, I switched out champagne with sparkling water. And TA-DAH! A faux-mosa was born; a healthier version of a mimosa. No more lazy, bloated brunches with this little trick. You will leave your brunches feeling energized and ready to tackle the day.
- Orange juice
- Sparkling water
- Champagne glasses
Pour ½ part sparkling water in your champagne glass and then add ½ part orange juice. Or you can make a big pitcher of fresh squeezed orange juice like I do at parties. If you're doing real mimosas, have sparkling water on the side as an option for those who don’t drink alcohol.
Tip for parties:
At the drink station or bar, have recipe cards made up for guests to make fun alcohol-free drinks. It is fun for the guests that do not drink alcohol and gives them something else to drink besides water.
Fun fact about Mimosas and sparkling water:
In 1925, a bartender at the Ritz Hotel in Paris named Frank Meier invented the mimosa, which uses equal parts sparkling wine and juice. It became a popular brunch drink to this day. Did you know that carbonated water was invented by Joseph Priestley in 1767 when he discovered a method of infusing water with carbon dioxide after suspending a bowl of water above a beer vat at a brewery in Leeds, England? It has no sugar, so it is a great crutch for those trying to wean off the bad soda habit.
