Nothing gets you mentally prepared for a day of relaxation like a mimosa in the morning. On any regular ol’ day I’ll treat myself to a glass of wine at the end of the day, or I’ll even have a glass at lunch if I am out with friends mid work day. But a mimosa…better yet, a peach mimosa, in the morning? That’s a luxury reserved only for special occasion days with zero commitments ahead!
Last weekend was the long weekend, I got all my events out of the way and Sunday was a day to relax with family. XOXO Wine generously sent me a bottle of their lovely XOXO Pinot Grigio Chardonnay Sparkling blend a week or so ago. Since I was knee deep in a wedding week when it arrived I decided to save the bottle for a day soon when I could enjoy it. Well, Sunday was the perfect day! I ran to the local fruit farm and grabbed some peaches and blueberries to whip up a fruit compote and some pancakes. The leftover peaches inspired me to try something a little different. You already know that I love all things seasonal, so naturally, a peach mimosa recipe felt just right!
Peach Mimosa Recipe Ingredients (for each drink):
-1.5 ounces peach juice (see below)
-1.5 ounces orange juice
-3 ounces sparkling wine – I used the XOXO Pinot Grigio Chardonnay Sparkling blend which is perfect because it isn’t too sweet and pairs perfectly with the juice
To make the peach juice:
Peel and dice 2 juicy and ripe peaches and blend them until liquid. Depending on how many mimosas you are making, you may need to blend more peaches. For 4 mimosas I only used 2 peaches.
First add your peach and orange juice to the glasses and top up with sparkling wine. Cheers!
Making fresh fruit compote is one of my favourite things to make breakfast a little bit sweeter. I’ll switch it up throughout the year depending on what is in season. Peach and blueberries were in season this weekend. Earlier in the summer cherries or strawberries were a great base and in a week or two apples will be key!
This fresh fruit compote recipe used:
Heat all ingredients on the stove until the fruit is super soft. This is a very simple recipe and I just used what I had on hand. I encourage you to do this too! Try using fruit that is in season and play around with the recipe. Fresh or frozen fruit, an added sweetener (maple syrup, brown sugar etc.) and a dash of vanilla is all you need. You can’t go wrong! Fresh fruit compote is the prefect addition to your waffles or pancakes and is bound to make your brunch a little sweeter!
