Nectarine mimosa is an actual mimosa (equal parts of sparkling wine + fresh orange juice), I’ve simply added a touch nectarine fresh pulp and extra mint. If you are looking to make an upgrade to your next brunch this is a great way to surprise your guests. It looks exactly like a real mimosa, but the nectarine bring that perfume and thickness to the drink and the touch of mint might seem simply decorative but far from that, it gives the drink a whole new dimension and freshness.
I was at the supermarket, in Spain, and saw those really small bottles of cava in special… I couldn’t resist. Although the original cocktail was made with champagne, a dry cava goes perfectly for this recipe. I recommend to use those big juicy Spanish oranges for this recipe, they are filled with sweetness. A perfect drink to any brunch, wedding reception or if your favorite sparkling wine is in special.
Let’s make bubbles!
6 champagne flute
- 1 bottle of Cava seco or brut
- 3 spanish oranges
- 3 nectarines (keep few pieces for decoration)
- Fill with ice cubes the flutes (or glass of your choice) just to cool the glass
- In a blender add all the nectarine and the orange juice, blend
- Pass through a sieve to get rid of the nectarine skin and extra pulp
- Take out the ice cubes
- Add the juice until half full
- Add the sparkling wine (cava or else)
- Finish with a little mint and nectarine decoration
Enjoy this matinal cocktail!
