Even if you forgot to get champagne, here’s an easy way to get your brunch on with a mimosa made with gin. I give you: The Gin-Mosa.
I made a next-level mimosa with stuff I keep in my house. That’s right. Here’s the gin-mosa.
So, I know all of the readers here may not share in the Oklahoma liquor law struggle. For those unaware, let me break it down for you:
- If you want to drink on Sunday (think – sporting events, brunch, don’t have time to get wine on Monday night before the Bachelor starts)…you have to make sure and purchase it on any other day of the week. Before 10 pm. It’s very similar to craving Chick fil-a. You didn’t know you wanted it until it was Sunday and you couldn’t have it.
- You can’t just pick it up with your regular groceries at Wally world. Liquor Stores or bust. (This will be changing next year!
Anyway, this is a really easy way to fake it if you’re looking to have a boozy breakfast but can’t hit the store. This gin is really smooth, and made by Prairie Wolf Spirits. The soda gives it the right amount of sweet and bubbles needed to fill the void of your champagne shaped-hole in your stomach.
Although this is a great substitute when you’re in a pinch, I am a gin fan, and I think I like these gin-moses better than a typical mimosa! Plus, I can avoid the wine headache afterwards this way. (This post makes me sound like a total lush, but I have only had like 4 glasses of wine/gin-mosa since the beginning of this year!)
Local Spotlight: Prairie Wolf Spirits produced four products at this time: vodka, gin, whiskey and coffee liqueur, and they’re based out of Guthrie, OK. I used their vodka to make this Tokyo Sling cocktail, and also to make this homemade vanilla extract!
