Cheers to Spring! Here is the perfect drink to kick off the beginning of Spring! By now, everyone is ready for the warm weather and what better way to celebrate than a great tasting Mimosa?

Instructions:

For the Syrup:
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
2 cup blueberries
Zest of 1 lemon

For the Mimosas:
2 cup lemonade
1 bottle champagne (or prosecco)
Fresh blueberries, for garnish

Directions:

  1. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine sugar and water and stir until sugar has dissolved. Add blueberries and lemon zest and bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer mixture until blueberries have burst, about 5 minutes.
  2. Remove from heat and let cool 10 minutes, then strain mixture into a clean jar. Let cool completely.
  3. Pour about a tablespoon of blueberry syrup into the bottom of champagne flutes, then pour over 1/4 cup lemonade. Top off each flute with champagne.
