I put together this fruity mimosa bar with Sweet’N Low as part of a series of sponsored posts for Socialstars. #SweetNLowStars
But a fruity mimosa bar isn’t just for baby showers, sprinkles, and sip and see parties. Not even sort of.
I might have officially reached the point in my pregnancy that is full of ‘OMG- I have 3 weeks to finish the nursery, sleep, have a baby shower, get a few maternity pictures, sleep, spend time with my toddler, spend time with my husband, plan a sip and see party, etc.’ but that doesn’t mean the rest of the world is in the same boat. There are bridal showers, birthday parties, girls night, and days ending in Y.
I may have greeted Michael with multiple fruity mimosas after work. More than once. Because I am unable to enjoy them beyond a swish and spit. He was geeked beyond belief.
Mimosa Bar Ingredients:
- 1 pound of your favorite fruit, pureed (I used strawberry, blueberry, and peach.)
- 1 cup Simple Syrup (Dissolve 8 tsp of Sweet’N Low in 1 cup of boiling water)
- Sparkling wine
- Optional: Fruit for garnish
Puree 1 pound of fruit and 1/3 cup of simple syrup in a food processor. Once blended, push the fruit puree through a strainer to remove any leftover fruit pieces. (Note: There was no need to strain mine.)
Add a rough 1/4 cup of puree to each cup (See picture above.) and top with your favorite bottle of bubbly before serving.
Optional: Add fruit for more fruity goodness.
My resolution happens to be a child who waits until after my mom’s birthday party but arrives before February. Because that’s the way babies work…
And yes, I’m still using paper straws and chevron in 2015. Don’t hate!
