Tangerine Mimosas Recipe

This tangy twist on a popular libation takes advantage of the season’s citrus bounty. Instead of orange juice, we’ve used tangerine—fresh-squeezed or from the carton. Blood orange and ruby red grapefruit juice also make wonderful mimosas. For a non-alcoholic version, use ginger ale in place of champagne.

• 2 bottles sparkling champagne, well chilled
• 1/2 gallon tangerine juice, well chilled
• Half slices of tangerine for garnish (optional)

1. Fill flutes or wine glasses half full of tangerine juice. Top with equal amount of champagne, and garnish with a tangerine slice. Serve immediately. Serves 10 to 12.
