BBCM | Mimosa Flights

If you ever want to have a beautiful and relaxing Sunday brunch, but also want to make sure that it is Instagram-worthy, make sure you stop by my favorite brunch place in West Hollywood: The Butcher, The Baker, The Cappuccino Maker.  Before coming here, make sure that you make reservations because there is a long wait on the weekends for brunch.  However, it is always worth the wait.

However, this is a not a brunch review.  But rather, it’s how to re-create one of my favorite brunch experience so you can enjoy the same bougie experience at home.  Brunch meals are very easy to re-create and usually cost a fortune to actually experience outside of your home.

Mimosa Flights

When I come here I make sure I order the mimosa flights. While you may be familiar with the boring orange juice and champagne variations at every other brunch location, you get to pick what juice you want to include in your flights. My favorite is passionfruit.

To recreate this unique experience, you will need the following:

INGREDIENTS

  • Strawberry puree
  • Mango puree
  • Passionfruit puree
  • You can pick whatever fruit you would like. However, I would recommend that you use a citrus fruit since that taste the best with champagne/prosecco.  Something like apple or grape probably would not make for a great tasking mimosa.
  • Personal champagne/prosecco bottles. You can find them at drizly, which offers one hour delivery for those last minute brunch gatherings.
  • Mini champagne flutes make sure that they are the smaller ones that are 5 ounces.
  • Flight paddles/trays (Make sure that there are 4 slots total. 3 glasses and 1 mini champagne bottle )

DIRECTIONS

  • I like to do a 2-to-1 ratio for my mimosa. That means 2/3 champagne and 1/3 fruit puree. However, this really just depends on personal taste.
  • Place each puree into champagne flutes
  • Place the three different flutes onto the flight paddle
  • Place the mini champagne/prosecco into the last slot.
