Clementine Rosemary Mimosa - Making the Mimosa Fancy

Posted on May 11, 2017 by Darren Hatherell

If you've already made the world's bubbliest mimosa (or enjoyed it yourself), then feast your eyes on this fancier version. Try a Clementine Rosemary Mimosa! It's a bit more work, but worth it.

 

To create this treat, first you need to prepare the ingredients. First, take the juice of about 5 clementines and strain it. If you have prepared clementine juice that will work as well.  Next juice and strain one lime and place in a separate container. Finally, prepare the rosemary syrup. It's easy but takes 15 minutes to prepare.  Take a couple stems of rosemary, a few rinds from your clementines (optional) and put them in a pot with a cup of water and a cup of sugar. Bring to boil and then simmer for 10 minutes.  Remove from heat and let it cool.

Now to prepare the drink. Fill your Bonne O bottle 2/3rds full of chilled white wine. Top up the bottle with your clementine juice.  If you're a bit short of clementine juice, fill to the rim with the leftover white wine. Fill the flavour chamber with 2/3rds rosemary syrup and 1/3rd lime juice. Place a carbonator in the carbonation chamber.

Close up the system and press the button to sparkle.

When you're finished either place the sealed and sparkled bottle in the refrigerator for later or get get ready to enjoy. For an added look, garnish the glasses with a small sprig or rosemary and a slice of clementine rind. Pour & enjoy!  The sweet clementine balances with a bit of tart from the lime while the rosemary adds earthiness. The flavours blend with the bubbly wine for a fancy mimosa treat!

After enjoying, be sure to run a rinse cycle since the wine and juice will need to be rinsed out prior to your next beverage. Remember that to run a rinse cycle, you don't need a carbonator.  Just fill the flavour chamber with water and the bottle with cold water to the rim.  Let it run for 30 seconds or so to clear the wine/juice out of the tube running from the flavour chamber to the bottle.
