Happy Mother's Day, Moms! To all of my mommy-readers out there - and especially my own - thank you. For all that you do. We literally wouldn't be here without you.
I hope you're all celebrating this morning with a nice brunch - and hopefully a few cocktails! I know mimosas are traditional brunch staples, but today I wanted to share with you a little something to kick them up a notch. (And to get mom to kick off her heels and spill a family secret or two to you!)
Presenting "Flirtinis". Based on a classic mimosa, the difference here is swapping OJ for Pineapple juice and - if your mom is daring - an extra kick of vodka! They are delicious. But whew do they pack a punch. Make sure to pace yourself with these ones. Or don't. Just don't drive afterwards.
Simply pour two parts chilled pineapple juice and one part vodka in the bottom of a champagne flute, and top with a nice dry champagne (like classic Korbel Brut.) Couldn't be more simple. Whip up a batch, and let the good times roll. Hope you all have a fantastic mother's day! XO
