A mocktail might seem dangerously untrue to our roots so let us assure you no one on the Rufus team is expecting, particularly not Rufus. But let’s say you have to host a baby shower (if there’s anyway to get out of that, definitely do so) or you’re out of bubbly and live somewhere you can’t restock on Sunday (you should probably move, oh wait). This recipe will be right up your alley.
- 12 ounces freshly squeezed orange juice
- 12 ounces sparkling water
- 1 tbsp honey
- 1/2 tsp orange flower water
Heat the honey in the microwave for 10-15 seconds. Whisk it and the orange flower water into the orange juice. Divide mix between four champagne flutes. Top with sparkling water.
LADIES, LADIES, LADIES (and gents): Once again this week, we’re teaming up with Donna and Chad at The Slow Roasted Italian to host the Ladies Night Cocktail linkup party. Please share your favorite bites and drinks. The rules are below.
But wait, drum roll please. We must pick our favorite link from last week. With all the fun takes on margaritas and so much bacon, avocado and other tasty stuff in the mix, this was tough. But we’re going with a recipe that made us want to make one instantly. That would be Barefeet in the Kitchen’s St. Germain Dillinger, which Greg is insisting on making as I write this. (If you’re featured here or over at The Slow Roasted Italian feel free to grab the featured on button below.)
