What is blood orange?
Blood oranges are a type of orange that gets its unique color from anthocyanins, which are antioxidants that give the fruit its red or purple hue. These oranges are slightly sweeter and more tart than regular oranges, making them the perfect addition to any cocktail or dish.
How to make Blood Orange Mimosas
Gather your ingredients to start. You will need Champagne or sparkling wine, fresh blood orange, blood orange slices, and rosemary.
What is the difference between champagne and sparkling wine?
Champagne is made from a specific type of grape, grown in the Champagne region of France. The wine is then fermented and bottled according to strict guidelines. Sparkling wine can be made from any type of grape and is not subject to the same regional or production restrictions. As a result, sparkling wine is often less expensive than champagne.
To prepare your mimosa, squeeze the juice out of the 1/2 blood orange into a champagne flute.
Top off with champagne. Garnish with fresh rosemary & blood orange slices. Enjoy!
