Easter Brunch…mimosas sound like fun! I like regular mimosas with the standard champagne/sparkling wine and orange juice. However, I wanted to make them special for easter. I made some blended fruit puree out of frozen peaches, raspberries and organic cane sugar. A couple of teaspoons in a glass of champagne was nice for a change, but I wanted something different.
I had purchased some lavender buds to make tea with and thought lavender mimosas would be fun to try. They actually turned out to be my favorite. I heated a cup of water and dissolved a cup of organic sugar in the water. Then I used a fillable tea bag with 2 spoonfuls of lavender and steeped it in the warm brew for about 10 minutes. The result was a very simple lavender syrup. I used a couple of spoonfuls in a glass of champagne and it turned out delightful. However, more is not best when it comes to lavender. You just want to bring a note of flavor to whatever you are making. Enjoy! I thought it was 2amaysing!
