RECIPE

Christmas Morning Mimosa

Matthew Kelly / Supercall

Forget opening presents Christmas morning. Instead, open a bottle of Champagne for a round of Mimosas. Perfect for a crisp winter morning, this variation on the bubbly brunch staple will fill you up with holiday cheer. Made with orange blossom honey, Angostura bitters, fresh squeezed orange juice and muddled cranberries, the cocktail is refreshingly tart and vivaciously citrusy. Make sure to stock up on Champagne—one round definitely won’t be enough.
