Is there a drink out there which can leave you feeling healthy AND lit at the same time? There is now, and you can drink it at brunch! That’s right peeps, it’s the mimosa smoothie – a compilation of fresh-squeezed juice, yogurt, and champagne. Does it get any better than that?
Now you can enjoy your alcoholic beverage in public while passer-bys who, according to Michele Rickman, form judgments about you in under 15 seconds, think you are a health-nut, cross-fitter or are working on your summer bod. Nope!! You are catching a mid-morning buzz and with each passing second, the AM gets better and better. All your cares seem to whisk themselves out the window. You may just do some housework later on in the day, so long as you can reward yourself with one of these fruity delights ten minutes in.
The best part about this drink, aside from keeping your drinking habits under the radar, is how versatile it is. For example, you could easily switch the orange juice out for peach or kiwi juice. Added too much juice? Throw some ice in the mixer until you get that white frothy deliciousness that is expected of a smoothie. And let’s not forget you can choose whether your champagne is brut, blanc de blanc, or the sweet cheap stuff at the front of the aisle in your neighborhood market. We won’t judge..or have we already?
If you are a die-hard buy-local kind of guy or gal, you could throw some lavender oil in your morning concoction from Lavender Falls Farm – it’s just the thing to calm your nerves.
Places in Springfield, Mo Which Serve the Mimosa Smoothie
While several bars, pubs, and restaurants in our Queen City serve mimosas, such as the Aviary, Farmer’s Gastropub, and the Early Bird Breakfast Pub to name a few, I have yet to find one which serves mimosa smoothies. Boy, that would be awesome, though… wait…could this be a potential business venture? Any financial backers out there who wanna support me in realizing my dream? We could do all kinds of alcoholic smoothies and beverages…. Coladas, smoothies, and shakes – Oh My! I can be the official taste-tester….hic! We could even get one of those little stands – like the mini-coffee places in Seattle located in parking lots.
In summary, this is a fun fruity cocktail which can be enjoyed anytime of the day…preferably on a day off or after work. Let’s stay responsible!
Foods Which Pair with a Mimosa Smoothie
When thinking of what gastronomical delights would bode well with this drink, the first thought which came to mind was “who cares.” I may or may not be enjoying one right now. I’ll never tell! Seeing as mimosas are a breakfasty, lunchy, brunchy kind of drink, anything smothered in bacon grease, or covered in biscuit gravy is probably a good thing.
But wait, you don’t want that weirdo eyeing you from across the way thinking you are conflicted between healthy and unhealthy foods….you could also opt for a salad with a vinaigrette dressing or eggs benedict with hollandaise sauce. It doesn’t matter what they think – especially after three of these. You have enough vitamin C in your system to take on the world. We salute you, so long as you drink responsibly and are at least 21 years or older.
Give me a call if you wanna start a smoothie stall!
Cheers (haha literally),
