Blood Orange Mimosas for #SundaySupper

It’s time to stop for a moment, reflect on the past year, and make resolutions for the New Year to come. That’s what we’re doing today for #SundaySupper. Today’s theme, Reflections and Resolutions, is hosted by Constance of The Foodie Army Wife.

2013 has been a whirlwind. So much has happened, and I can’t believe how quickly time has flown. I learned so much more about cooking than ever before, had my first relationship, moved, grew the blog tremendously, fell back in love with yoga, met lots of new and interesting people; there were family blessings, as well as tragedies, that brought us together; there were trips to Las Vegas, Key West and many short Jersey visits; there were more food and wine events than I can count on one hand.

The #SundaySupper team knows just how precious life can be, and right now is the time for us to take a look back on this past year and be thankful for everything — and get excited about what’s ahead. Let’s all bid farewell to 2013, and welcome 2014!

What’s the one thing you need when you ring in the New Year? A cocktail, of course! A New Year’s Day brunch cocktail is a must. But I’m not talking about the same old boring Mimosa you have at every other brunch throughout the year. The first cocktail of 2014 needs to more unique than just some OJ and Prosecco. It needs to be something special, with a little bit of spunk. Freshly squeezed blood orange juice and my favorite sparkling white wine: Moscato d’Asti. Two ingredients are all you need for this crafty cocktail. No artificial, sugary juices are used, so all you taste is refreshing citrus and sweet bubbly wine. Not only is it pretty pleasing to your palate, but the gorgeous red-orange color is very eye-catching. This is the perfect drink to start off the New Year. Cheers!!

Celebrate the New Year with me and all of my #SundaySupper friends! We’ve got everything from breakfast to appetizers to drinks. Most of these would be perfect for your New Year’s Eve celebrations, whether you’re staying home for a quiet night in, going out to a party and need a dish to bring along, or hosting your own soiree.
