Orange Cream Mimosa (can also be non alcoholic)
Why I Love This Recipe
Ingredients You'll Need
2 1/2 cups freshly squeezed orange juice (5 to 6 oranges)
1 orange, zested
1 cup half-and-half
1 cup superfine sugar
1 bottle sparkling wine or Champagne*
Strawberries, for garnish
*Non-alcoholic sparkling wine, sparkling cider, or ginger ale can be substituted
Put orange juice, zest, half-and-half, and sugar into a blender and process until the sugar has dissolved, about 30 seconds.
Pour this mixture into a shallow pan and freeze until hard, 4 hours or overnight.
Remove the frozen orange mixture from the freezer and let it sit to soften slightly, about 10 minutes.
With a scoop or tablespoon, scrape out a small scoop and put it into a Champagne glass.
Slowly fill the glass with Champagne and serve garnished with strawberries.
