My Husband's Favorite Mimosas

When we were dating, we would go to a favorite restaurant all the time. They had amazing food and the bartender made fantastic drinks. One drink that we liked was a Mimosa but it was a little different then your traditional orange juice and champagne. I don't know if the bartender put anything else in the drink to make it taste the way it did, but this is my version of what he made. I made these for our 1 year anniversary breakfast along with the french toast to surprise my wonderful husband.

No Ordinary Mimosa

1 bottle of any sparkling rosé (or you can use a brut)
1 jar of maraschino cherries in juice
orange juice

Take two champagne flutes and pour each half way up with champagne. Next, pour in the orange juice until the glasses are full. Drop in one cherry in each glass and let it float to the bottom. Take a small spoon and get some of the juice of the maraschino cherries and pour a tiny bit into each of the glasses. Enjoy! And of course, you can repeat this process if you want another glass or two......
