For Dry January, I wanted to create a few mocktail recipes for you to enjoy. You may be wondering, what’s Dry January?
It’s when people refrain from drinking alcohol. Now this can be for a variety of reasons. At the start of the new year, many people are thinking through their wellness goals and it’s been proven that reducing alcohol intake can help maximize your weight loss goals.
Others may refrain from it as a test to their personal discipline. While some use this time to reevaluate their relationship with alcohol. Especially with the pandemic and many people are suffering from depression and other mental health challenges. Some have shared that they found themselves turning to alcohol to cope with the stress. So by eliminating alcohol, they can help to reduce their dependence on it to cope with things surrounding them.
Now let’s get into this recipe!
I LOVE mimosas! They are a breakfast and brunch staple. And I’ll be honest, every other flavor of mimosa is my favorite over the traditional orange juice mimosa. Now, don’t get me wrong, I know it’s a classic. But with so many other flavors of juice, they really elevate the drink.
This recipe is not only delicious, but beautiful!
Here’s what you’ll need:
Before you serve, make sure to place your juice and brut in the refrigerator for a few hours, so it’s cold. I love to set up a beautiful mimosa bar. Check out my blog post on how to set up a mimosa bar.
Next, sugar your rim. You do this by slicing a lime (or another citrus fruit), then putting a slit in the middle and dragging it across the rim of the glass.
You then dip the rim of the glass in a bowl of sugar.
Next you’ll grab your toothpicks and push blackberries through it. Typically two blackberries will fit. You will need to leave a bit of space at the ends, so the toothpick can sit comfortably on the glass. For glassware, I am using my double-wall champagne flutes.
Next, pour your juice then top with your sparkling brut. To finish, place your blackberry garnish on top of the glass.
This is a super simple and yummy recipe that I’m sure you’ll love! Make sure to tag me on Instagram if you give it a try!
