Orange thyme mimosas
This recipe is sponsored by Florida’s Natural. I used their product to make this Orange thyme mimosas. The opinions and text are all mine. The end.
If you are like me and love mimosas, you are going to be blown away by this unique Orange Thyme Mimosa recipe. I’m sure this will become one of your favorite drinks to serve on special occasions. Refreshing, unique and very easy to make.
I like to make mimosas whenever I’m celebrating a special occasion. Easter is just around the corner, and with everything going on in the world right now, my family and I will be celebrating a little differently this year, but I still want it to feel like the special occasion it is.
This recipe is a unique twist on a classic. The honey thyme syrup adds a unique and distinctive flavor that pairs perfectly with orange juice.
To make the syrup, I personally use raw honey. It’s what I always use at home, but any type of honey will do. I would only caution against using a flavored honey and stick to a classic honey like clover.
For the orange juice in this recipe, I opt for Florida’s Natural® Brand Orange Juice which is made from one simple ingredient — Florida oranges. And only Florida oranges. No water, sugar or preservatives are added. Florida’s Natural orange juice comes from pure Florida oranges and is rich in Vitamin C.
This recipe is superb and sure to be a new favorite. We prefer it to regular mimosas because the subtle thyme flavor really makes the drink.
If you’re like me and want to prepare ahead of time, you can make the thyme syrup in advance and store it in the fridge for up to two weeks. Regardless of batch size, be sure to chill all ingredients before serving. This recipe does not call for ice, so everything should be refrigerated ahead of time.
If you haven’t thought of a special drink to serve your guests this Easter, look no further. This orange thyme mimosa is the perfect recipe to share with family and friends.
