Twisted Mimosa Sunrise

LC Twisted Mimosa Sunrise

Because adding Tequila is never a bad idea...

Pixie Bubbles and orange juice make for a delicious mimosa, but sometimes you want something a little more special!

We love this twist on one of our favorite boozy brunch classics.

What we especially love about this cocktail?   We usually have these ingredients on hand; it's quick and easy to make; you can keep it super simple, or dress it up as much as you like with the rim and garnish.

*If you're not sure how to rim the glasses or want to change it up, here are some suggestions:

If you're planning ahead and have time, chilling your glasses first will make this step a little easier.

For a simple sugar rim:

Pour some sugar on a small plate or wide, shallow bowl. You'll need several tablespoons and can use superfine sugar, or turbinado sugar for a more dramatic effect.

If you don't fancy a sugar rim:

Swap sugar for kosher salt, or combine both for a savory sweet treat, or skip this step entirely, it's up to you!  

If you want to take it to the next level:

Combine equal parts lime or orange zest with the sugar and/or salt.

Once your coating is ready to go:

Moisten the rim of your glass with a wedge of lime or orange, then twist the rim of your glass back and forth in the coating until it's covered to your preference. 

Alternatively:

You can dip your glass in a shallow bowl filled about 1/4 inch with lime juice, grenadine, OJ, or your preferred combo. Then dip your glass in the coating as above.
