Everybody loves mimosas. Especially me! So for our Mothers Day styled photo shoot with Zooey Magazine, I wanted to reinvent this classic beverage! 

Blood Oranges are in season from about November to May, so this time of year is perfect to try this sweet beverage!

 

INGREDIENTS || 

orange juice

Sparkling Wine

Vodka

Blood Orange Bitters

Blood Orange Liquor

1 Blood Orange

 

METHOD ||

pour 1oz vodka into a glass with 3oz chilled orange juice into a glass. Fill the rest of the glass with champagne almost to the top. Slowly pour in the blood orange liquor. then top with three dashes of blood orange bitters and garnish with a blood orange wedge.  Yum. 

It kind of looks like a big stick popsicle!

DIY: Mason Jar Hot Cocoa

We wanted to kick off this adventurous blog series with a fun and easy DIY. So, the first part, of this 2 part DIY, is the Mason Jar Hot Cocoa. These make great Christmas gifts, party favors or can be made for a crowd at a camping trip or cabin vacation!

We love how they can be made ahead of time and stored - the Holidays can get so hectic! Bring them as a hostess gift or spike them with Baileys or Kaluah for a kick!

2 cups powdered sugar

1 cup cocoa

2 cups powdered milk (to make this completely non-dairy, omit powdered milk and add another cup of the non-dairy creamer.)

1/2 cup non-dairy creamer

1 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons cornstarch

1 /8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

Mini marshmallows

Chocolate chips

Mix all the ingredients (except the marshmallows and chocolate chips) in a large bowl. Spoon two tablespoons into an 8 oz mason jar and top with a handful of chocolate chips and marshmallows. Add hot water or milk (we like almond or soy). Shake your jar, remove the lid and enjoy!

Stay tuned later this week for part two of this fabulous DIY - the Mason Jar Cocoa Sleeve!
