I know I’ve been a little missing-in-action lately but, trust me, I’ve still been working on recipes whenever I can. Perhaps you’ve seen some of my latest cooking and eating out adventures on my Instagram feed?
The craziest thing that’s gone on in my life lately is the fact that I just moved apartments. From finding a new place to packing (and getting rid of things) to actually moving and setting up my new place, I was exhausted.
But that’s all over now. I am happily settled in my new apartment and now it’s time to celebrate! And guess how I’m doing it? By having friends over to try my latest creation: these mango pomegranate mimosas with mint!
What I love about these mimosas is that, by using frozen mango chunks instead of mango juice, I’m not including the added sugars that juice usually has but I am including the fiber, vitamin A, C and B6. Instead, the sweetness in this celebratory brunch cocktail comes from mango’s natural sugars and the added pomegranate seeds.
While champagne isn’t the healthiest thing you can have, I think we would all agree that sometimes in life you just have to celebrate. And I have loved celebrating the end of these two very stressful months with some of my best friends. Plus, serving them this healthier-than-usual mimosa with Latin flavors has been quite the treat, too!
- 1 (16 ounce) bag of frozen mango chunks
- 16 teaspoons pomegranate seeds
- 32 mint leaves
- 1 bottle of champagne
- In a blender, combine the frozen mango chunks with 3 cups of water. Blend together until the mango chunks are turned into juice.
- To make each cocktail glass, put 1 teaspoon of pomegranate seeds on the bottom of a champagne glass. Fill it halfway with the mango juice, then top the other half with champagne. To finish, garnish with 2 mint leaves.
How do you celebrate big accomplishments in your life?
