THE AUTUMNAL MIMOSA

Lauren Kelp | The Autumnal MimosaHey, hey, it’s Friday! And you know what that means – COCKTAILS! We think you worked extra hard this week, so we think you should treat yourself to the most delicious cocktail around (well, at least this week) – our Autumnal Mimosa! See the recipe from sweet Laurel below. – xoxo, LK


Good morning, all! November is finally here, and where I live (in a little desert oasis called Phoenix) that means the return of outdoor entertaining. The cooler temperatures recently inspired me to throw a little autumnal-themed brunch bash, which led me to a new revelation…apple cider mimosas! In all my experimenting with cocktails, I’ve never messed around with the original mimosa equation (Orange juice + Sparkling wine = BRUNCH TIME), and now I’m kicking myself for having missed out on so many delicious, seasonal sips!

This pairing of crisp apple cider with a perfectly chilled sparkling wine (try a nice, dry prosecco or champagne to balance the sweetness of cider) is an autumnal match made in heaven, and perfectly Instagram-worthy once topped with a slice of apple and a sprig of fresh rosemary.

Whether it was the best week of your life (in that case, CONGRATS!) or kind of crummy (we all have ’em), there is no better way to transition into the weekend than with a little cocktail. If you happen to be partial to citrus and fresh herbs, this cocktail is an absolute must. Perfect for a long soak in the tub, entertaining guests, or whipping up one for you and the roommate, the clementine and rosemary mimosa is absolutely divine.

So, what do you say? Meet us for drinks after work? We will have one waiting for you!

1. Stir the lime juice, syrup, and clementine juice together.

2. Pour prosecco into a glass and top with the syrup mixture.

3. Garnish with rosemary sprigs and a clementine twist.
