Cocktail Wednesday - Mimosa Sunset

This week's cocktail was the Mimosa Sunset (recipe from here), not to be confused with Sunrise Mimosa, which has many variations.  Sunset actually makes better sense with the colors ..

  • Grenadine 
  • Orange juice
  • Pineapple juice
  • Sparkling wine
The proportions in the recipe seem to be a little heavy on the juices, however mixing the juices beforehand as the recipe says might be a good idea.  I just mixed in the glasses.  I put a little grenadine in the bottom of the glass, added some of the juices and topped off with the bubbles. 

The drinks were actually redder than they look in the pictures.  On my second drink, I went lighter on the juice maybe, 1/3 of the glass, and 2/3 bubbles and it was actually a little better, and I like sweet.

This is a nice variation of the mimosa.  a pretty good morning drink .. or nighttime ..
