Mimosa Bar




My family always celebrates Christmas with a brunch on Christmas Eve. It is a wonderful and easy tradition, with a meal that is easy for the hostess to put together. We serve a variety of egg dishes, ham, spinach potatoes, quiche, fruit, bagels and this year I added a delicious strawberry, cream cheese french toast.

Another part of the festivities are the mimosas we serve as everyone arrives. I decided to prepare a Mimosa Bar this year with everything set up for ease of serving and it looked pretty too. In two special glass pitchers, I pored both orange juice and cranberry juice. Sparkling champagne glasses were lined up and a good quality prosecco was in an ice bucket, chilling. A dish with raspberries sat on the counter too for a lovely and festive garnish.

When my family arrived, the mimosas were easily offered and served, with the choice of traditional orange juice, cranberry juice or a delicious mixture of the two juices. As brunch was being put on the buffet table, everyone was happy with a festive drink in their hand, because our family Christmas celebration had arrived for another year.

Happy Friday!
