Jamaican Mimosa

072213003We continue Mimosas this month on Bette Lee Crosby’s Midweek Mixers. A fun one that takes in the flavors of Jamaica is the Jamaican Mimosa. A Naomi Blackburn original, the Jamaican Mimosa blends the gentle flavors of mango and coconut which is then topped with champagne.

Special note: this will produce 6-8 mimosas.

On that note, here we go:

Ingredients:

1 Mango, chopped

1 can Mango nectar

Coconut rum

1 bottle champagne

Directions:

1)      In a blender, puree chopped mango with mango nectar.

2)      In a shaker, combine 1.5 oz mango mix, 1 oz coconut rum and a small handful of ice. Shake until chilled (30 seconds)

3)      Pour into well chilled champagne flutes and top with champagne. Stir very gently to blend.

4)      If desired, serve with a slice of mango as a garnish.

    Thanks Guys! I am happy that you all enjoy them. I must admit that I have a fun time with creating them or “testing” unusual ones I come across.
