These delicious Prairie Sage Mimosa's are a treat for any brunch that you may be hosting out on the prairie or at your mountain home.

Ingredients:

  • Sage Leaves (found with the herbs in the produce section) But could also be picked from the Prairie !!!
  • Fresh Grapefruit (one whole one for 6 drinks)
  • IZZE Sparkling Grapefruit Soda (chilled)
  • Prosecco or Champagne - I prefer Distilleria Bottega Prosecco by @ruffinowines
  • Sage Leaves and Grapefruit Slice for garnish

 

Mixin' it Up

  • In a beautiful champagne glass or coupe glass, squeeze a slice of fresh grapefruit and rub the sage leaves together adding it into the fresh juice.  This will release those two unique flavors.
  • Pour the glass half-full with the chilled sparkling Izzy Grapefruit soda
  • Fill the glass up with prosecco or champagne
  • Thinly slice the grapefruit so you have a complete round slice.  See photo.  
  • Garnish glass with a piece of sage.

Styling Tips

  • These Coupe glasses sport an almost vintage antique flair with their floral motif.  Designed by @WilliamsandSonoma, they have a curved pedestal which are very dainty and easy to hold  (and drink) when talking and are completely dishwasher safe! A set of 4 runs around $ 67.00.  Total sweetness!
  • My linens for the shoot were by @hibscuslinens and hand-embroidered/custom-made with the outline of the Tetons. Made of a light linen and crochet edge,  I had 4 cocktail napkins made and also a hand-towel to show off their beautiful handiwork. If you are interested in them, please message me through IG. 
  • The Tina Frey Stainless Steel ice bucket was the most standout item on the table.  Graciously offered by @mountaindandy, it is a STAPLE  every mountain home should have.  Runs around $460.  By the way, Mountain Dandy has several options for serving wine at a party.  I have bought several for private clients that they have LOVED. 
 Believe it or not, we enjoyed the end of the long shoot and managed to get all of the delicious mimosa's down.......
