We were planning only our second Book Club get together in well over a year, and I was thinking about a beverage.
“Wait! What about the book?”
Oh, sweetie, we are most certainly not that kind of book club.
Mimosas are always nice, and I found a recipe with cherry juice and stuff…
•Champagne or sparkling wine
•18 oz pineapple juice
•3/4 cup cherry juice
•1/4 cup Cointreau
Note: I think next time I make this, I will use orange juice in place of the pineapple; this was good, but a touch too sweet.
Stir the pineapple juice together with the cherry juice and Cointreau in a large container, then stash in the fridge to chill.
When ready to serve, pour the chilled juice mix into a wine glass and top with your champagne or sparkling wine of choice. Because it is on the sweet side, I would recommend a dry sparkling wine, but you do what you want.
Garnish with a pitted cherry and/or a slice of orange.
This is more than enough juice for two bottles of wine, so gather the book club!
