Every time I mention Ninja Mimosas in a post I get a few people commenting and asking how to make them. So yesterday I decided it was time to post the recipe COMPLETE WITH PICTURES, you are so welcome. Plus then it gave me an excuse to watch When Harry Met Sally and drink one of these bad boys. I promise the recipe is easy. Also it was brought to my attention last night that the creator of the Ninja Mimosa might be Jacey and not me. She told me this story about how she came up with the idea and when she told me about it I scoffed at the idea, but I have absolutely no memory of that. So I guess the origin of the Ninja Mimosa will remain unknown.
What you need:
Vodka. This one was only $7.98 at Food 4 Less, but it doesn't hurt if you want to go fancy and try some flavored vodka. We've done different fruity kinds and they've all been delicious.
Juice. I used orange mango yesterday. I've also used raspberry lemonade and peach juice. Get creative!
Champagne. I really class it up and get the cheapest least expensive bottle I can find. Andre is always the winner, and sometimes it's on sale at Target for $3.98/bottle. Win.
A cup and ice. Let's be real, you can't fit everything you need into a champagne flute..
Fill your cup half full with champagne. Or a little more than half full, like in this picture. Oops.
Pour yourself a nice shot of vodka and mix that in with the champagne. Let things get a little friendly.
Fill the rest of the way with juice and mix it all together. Garnish with a strawberry; I didn't but I feel like it would look super pretty if you did.
Take a heavily edited selfie with your drink, being careful not to spill any. I wasn't very careful. Use a straw, and enjoy!
Probably don't drink very many of these. They're called "Ninja" Mimosas because you can't tell there's vodka in them and it sneaks up on you, so if you drink too many too fast you'll be hurting. Also, please drink responsibly, or something. And remember that it's responsible to use up all the champagne in a timely manner so it doesn't go bad. Let's not be wasteful, folks.
