This Orange Mimosa Float takes your love mimosas and ice cream to the next level!
Hello! My name is Krissy and I’m popping over from Self Proclaimed Foodie – where I share nothing but good food and good recipes. Julie asked a few of us to guest post on her awesome blog so that she could actually spend a couple weeks focusing on her wedding. You see, when you own and maintain a blog, your work is never done. I’m not doing Julie too many favors by getting my post to her at the very last minute, but hopefully all the pretty pictures of booze and ice cream will distract her from that minor detail.
I made some homemade extreme vanilla bean ice cream because I wanted to make a chocolate Guinness ice cream float. Well, that’s not entirely honest. I made it because I just really wanted it, but I used the float as an excuse because I’m always in need of new content for my own blog. As I was contemplating what to make for Julie’s blog, I was wondering how I could use this creamy and delicious ice cream. I know she loves boozy creations, and I know she’s taken the plunge and every newly married woman deserves to be pampered with breakfast in bed, so I figured I should do a post she could show her husband as a hint of how he should be treating his new bride.
I’m sure you’ve had a mimosa before. If you haven’t, you’re crazy. The combination of orange juice and champagne is heavenly. Now, if you’ve had a mimosa but have never had a mimosa float, boy are you in for a treat! Of course, with many boozy delights, the quantity of each ingredient is 100% up to you. The purpose of me sharing this recipe is so that I can help just one person out there. If I can make just one person think “Oh my, I had never thought of adding creamy vanilla ice cream to my mimosa,” then my job here is done.
Just look how yummy it is! ?Its like an orange creamsicle with booze!
If you’re wanted to know how I made that ice cream, hop on over to my blog to see the recipe. While you’re there, feel free to poke around and see if there’s anything else you like!
- vanilla bean ice cream
- 1-2 large oranges (cara cara preferred)
- If desired, removed some of the zest from your orange and mix with the ice cream. This part is totally optionally as some people don't like the texture.
- Add your ice cream to a champagne flute. Squeeze your oranges and collect the juice in a measuring cup with a spout. I prefer about a half cup of juice in this drink. Pour the juice over the ice cream. Top with chilled champagne and serve!
