Momma's Mimosa #SundaySupper

Yum
My family has made a tradition of going to brunch for Mother's Day.  Since my daughter is now grown and lives in another state, that tradition has been left to my husband to fulfill, which he does very well!  One of my favorite things that I look forward to is the Mimosa.

The mimosa is said to come into existence at the Hotel Ritz Paris in the 1920s.  Traditionally the drink is made with equal parts of champagne and orange juice.  Many varieties are available and usually specified if different from orange juice so that you know what you will be drinking!

My take on the traditional mimosa, called Momma's Mimosa, is using a dry Prosecco. Prosecco is an Italian sparking wine, white, made from the Glera grape.  Tasty.
