Baby, it's cold outside! The cold temps have really hit us here in Charleston, South Carolina! For a place where we often welcome Christmas in our shorts and t-shirts, we're really scrounging to find enough warm clothing. It is so very hard to face 29 degrees first thing in the morning. This week, I'm attempting to warm us to the bone.

|You guessed it...it's time to play Fill That Glass!|
Today, I'm serving up Mimosas! Now, in the past, I've gotten fancy with Mimosas, adding pomegranates or raspberries. But today, I'm going with a good old-fashioned, run-of-the-mill recipe. Just oj and champagne. Feel free to squeeze your own juice. I, however, will be pouring mine right out of the carton. I'm filling the flute somewhere between half-way and a tad bit more. (Sorry to be so exact!) The rest of the flute is reserved for the champagne. Relax. You don't have to buy an expensive bottle of Dom. In fact, the cheaper brands work the best when your mixing drinks. Save the pricey stuff for a grand toast.

Oh, and while we're talking flutes, the one in the photo came from Tiffany's. Yep, the blue box company. As in Breakfast at Tiffany's. We received a set of these beauties from the company my husband worked for right out of college. Every Christmas, they would shower their employees with Tiffany gifts. Extravagant. But it was the late-80's and early-90's. No big deal. They're out of business now.
|Yummy raspberries and blackberries would be a great garnish.|
You can always garnish your Mimosa with an orange round. Or, add berries to a festive pick and stick that in. But, as you remember, I swore to go run-of-the-mill and I will adhere to that. Mimosas are best served with brunch or breakfast foods. Which works out great for those Breakfast for Dinner nights!
|As you know by now, it's time to play Empty That Glass! Cheers!|
