Mimosa With a Twist

 

I love a good mimosa. It’s like society’s gift to allow you to enjoy an alcoholic beverage in the morning without judgement. So I indulged and enjoyed this freshened up version. I had some left over granita from this recipe I shared last week. It was a no brainer to incorporate this into a fancified mimosa. Since the weather was significantly hotter over the weekend, it was the perfect pairing for my breakfast.

 

I love how the frozen granita breaks up and give it a nice icy texture. The granita is on the sweeter side as well, so it gives the drink a nice sweetness without being too over the top sugary. Bonus for your morning consumption!  Especially when eaten with these lightened up muffins coming your way tomorrow.

To make the mimosa, just spoon about 3-4 spoonfuls of the granita into your glass. Note, this depends on the glass size, these are on the smaller side, use more granita if making yours in a larger glass. Add orange juice to fill the glass and garnish with a strawberry for a bit of flare. Enjoy!
