Candy Cane Mimosa

Hello from Hamilton! Now that it’s officially the holiday season, I’ve gone home to visit my parents for a couple of weeks, like most university students on break. I can’t believe it, but I only have one more semester of classes and then I will finally be finished my Masters! Now that life is a bit less hectic at this time of the year, I like to keep my recipe development simple. After all, you want more time with your family and less time in the kitchen. At least in an ideal world…

These Sparkling Candy Cane Mimosas are remarkably easy to make, and are a perfectly quick addition to Christmas day brunch. Or you can be like me and enjoy a couple while wrapping your presents. This is a judgment-free zone, okay???

We haven’t had any snow really at all this December, which is definitely unusual for this time of year in Toronto (and Hamilton!). However, just as I started to create and shoot this recipe this past weekend, the snow started flying and there was this magical sort of holiday cheer in the air. It hasn’t really felt like Christmas yet, but this was a nice touch on mother nature’s part.☺️❄️⛄️

I love this time of year. Everyone is done school and starting to finish up work, and for the most part people get into rest mode, or crazy holiday shopping mode.??I personally am finished my holiday shopping so now it’s all about getting in some much needed relaxation, time with my family and starting work on the final project for my Masters. I know more than a few people in my life will be receiving food-related gifts this year! What are you getting your loved ones?

I’ve experimented with several different sparkling cocktails (like these Blackberry Peach Bellinis and these Blueberry Pear Cocktails) and I’ve discovered how easy and low maintenance champagne cocktails really are. I could even see these Candy Cane Mimosas transformed for other special holiday occasions like Valentine’s Day and Thanksgiving with just the switch of a couple ingredients – choose a different fruit juice and candy accompaniment and you’re good to go! You really can’t go wrong with 3 ingredient cocktails that have a total 5 minutes prep time.?

    I love anything mint flavored, and I love rose. This sounds like the perfect drink for me!

    When I was a kid, we used to stick peppermint candy sticks into oranges and suck on them until juice came through. This is the grown-up version!
