Happy Mother’s Day!
Now that you’ve finished the past 365 days making sure your family have everything they need, it’s time to take a few moments and celebrate…you! And in my book, there’s no better way then to pop the cork of something bubbly and fresh. This year, I wanted to make my brunch-y cocktail with something a little different. Behold ~ the Strawberry Rhubarb Mimosa!
What intrigued me about this year’s model was the little bit of ginger that’s simmered in the mix. It gives the sweetness of the strawberry and rhubarb a nice piquant undertone that smolders a little before the bubbles of the Prosecco take over.
Strawberry Rhubarb Mimosa
- 1/3 c sugar
- 1/3c water
- 1/2 c diced rhubarb
- 1/2c diced strawberries
- 2 tsp finely chopped ginger
- 1 tsp fresh lime juice
- Chilled Prosecco
- Strawberries (garnish)
Combine sugar, water, rhubarb, strawberries and ginger in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and simmer 10-15 minutes until it’s reduced down. It should be viscous but not thick like jelly (if it’s too thick, add a bit of hot water). Remove from heat and cool. Transfer mixture to a blender or food processor and add lime juice. Puree until smooth. Strain to remove any seeds. Recipe via nutritioulicious.com.
Before serving, rinse and chill champagne flutes in the freezer to frost. Pour one tablespoon of the mixture in glass, top with Prosecco, garnish with your strawberry.
So now, Moms, sit down. Relax and savor slowly. And for the next two minutes, you are the Queen of everything.
