Mimosas with Fresh Mint and Oranges


This is a very cooling summer drink.


  • 1 orange
  • 2 cups fresh orange juice
  • 1 cup sparkling wine or champagne
  • 1 to 3 drops peppermint essential oil (to taste)
  • 4 fresh mint leaves, for garnish

Slice orange in half. Cut two thin slices of the orange & save them to use as a garnish. Stir orange juice together with the sparkling water, add the peppermint oil.. Serve in champagne flutes & garnish each glass with two mint leaves & one thin orange slice.

Note: Sparkling mineral water or ginger ale can be substituted for the wine.

"Diet has the distinction of being the only major determinant of health that is completely under your control. You have the final say over what does and what does not go into your mouth and stomach. You cannot always control the other determinants of health, such as the quality of the air you breathe, the noise you are subjected to, or the emotional climate of your suroundings, but you can control what you eat. It is a shame to squander such a good opportunity to influence your health." ~Andrew Weil, MD
