Pressice Barware Ice Ball Press Recipes:
Where did Mimosas Come From?
Mimosas have quickly become one of the best brunch time drinks since the origin of the mimosa drink in 1925. Most mixologists agree that the mimosa started as a brunch drink inside a bar in Paris, France. Now, the Buck Fizz, closely related but contains more champagne than most modern day mimosa recipes, was created in 1921 in London . Everyone knows about the orange juice and the sparkling wine or champagne, and pairing them together preferably in the morning is a great way to start the day or continue the night. However, there is one fatal flaw in the modern mimosa, and that is public enemy #1, DILUTION!!! Enter the Ice Press, which can be purchased here, and is a product that enhances the drinking experience.
How is this a Unique Mimosa Recipe?
This recipe is a new twist on the class mimosa drink that's been around for nearly 100 years. It's a great way to spice up brunch time, and can be done easily with the mimosa ingredients that you might expect. However, the delivery of orange juice frozen and melted into an ice ball is truly where the magic happens. This recipe stops the dilution in its tracks when it comes to making a perfect non-diluted mimosa. When using the ice ball press, you want to first start by freezing your orange juice. Having an orange juice popsicle is the first step in making the perfect mimosa, that won't dilute over time to be left with a watery mess. The 2.25" ice ball press then takes the block orange juice ice and after being inserted into the two aluminum metal halves of the ice press, transforms into an orange ice ball in less than a minute. Feel free to leave the drink on the counter for extended periods of time, as the added surface area soothes dilution, and even when the perfect ice ball melts, it will just be pure orange juice and sparking wine or champagne.
Different Sparkling wines that you can Use for Mimosas
- Brut. The Brut is the driest of the sparkling wines. While fermenting the yeast eat almost all of the sugar, which leads to the dry taste. In the modern mimosa Ice Ball press recipe, it is perfectly fine to use the brut sparkling wine as a base, but do not feel obligated.
- Prosecco. The origin of Prosecco comes from the (you guessed it) Prosecco region of Italy. It has a sweet, bubbly taste that many mimosa enthusiasts love to have with their orange juice. For this frozen orange juice ice ball press mimosa, it will work perfectly well. Especially at the beginning of the drink, when the frozen orange juice has yet to dilute into the mimosa, the sweetness of the prosecco truly comes out with a hint of orange.
- Champagne. Everyone has heard of the saying, 'All champagne is sparking wine, but not all sparkling wine is champagne.' This has everything to do with the region of France that creates the sparkling wine, Champagne. As the name suggests, it is named after the French region, and is experienced as a smaller bubble, refreshing fizzy drink. Although the original mimosa was created with this, for the ice ball press mimosa it is not a requirement.
Why Create a New Mimosa?
If it ain't broke.... need I say more? Well, in this case we need to. As a company, we pride ourselves in innovation, from ice ball press product design to complete customer care in providing new and exciting recipes for our readers and customers. Imagine the next brunch party where, as a host, you can provide a unique ice press experience on a timeless classic drink. It is a perfect cocktail to amaze your friends, and as the drink dilutes it becomes a different drinking experience altogether.
One of the main benefits of providing a twist on the classic mimosa is preventing dilution through the effective use of the ice ball press. Not only will the drink stay colder for longer periods of time due to the physics behind the ice ball press, but when it does dilute only the juice from the orange juice will enter instead of additional water from the ice cube.
Plus we all know that the stronger the Mimosa - the better!
