Virtual Mimosas for All the Homeschooling Mommies (and Daddies, too!)

Per the request of the Activities Coordinator from "Life of the Planet" in a comment over at "Principled Discovery", here's a virtual mimosa in one's choice of alcoholic or non-alcoholic version (for the Mormons, preggos, and other teetotalers):

  • 8 ounces orange juice
  • 1 (750 ml) bottle dry champagne or sparkling white grape juice
  • 2 ounces triple sec (for alcoholic version)
  • orange rind, curls (to garnish)
  • Directions

    1. Rinse and chill 4 champagne flutes in freezer to from the glasses.
    2. Pour 2 ounces of orange juice into each flute.
    3. Fill almost to rim with champagne.
    4. Top each glass with a splash of Triple Sec and garnish with orange curl.
    Cheers! Slainte! A votre sante! Prosit! Salute! Salud! L'chaim!

    How fun! And thank you. Being virtual, I have no worries about the alcohol and nursing. :) And here is a public domain picture of a Mimosa, courtesy of wikipedia:


    Just in case you prefer to see what you are drinking. We don't want to have too much fun all at once. We might not be able to handle it, being new to this and all. :)

    The best thing about a virtual mimosa is you don't have to worry about the calories. I think I'll enjoy a second one.

    Will this affect my ability to homeschool my children? I mean, we really have a busy day planned and I wouldn't want it to interfere.
