Grilled Blood Orange Mimosa
Pop a bottle and cheer the crew this weekend with these Grilled Blood Orange Mimosas. Grill blood oranges and throw them in a flute with that classic combo of champagne and OJ.
3 blood orange, halved
2 Tablespoon granulated sugar
1 Bottle sparkling wine
Thyme sprigs, for garnish
When ready to cook, set Traeger temperature to 375℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.
When the grill is hot, dip the cut side of the orange halves in sugar and place cut side down directly on the grill grate.
Grill the oranges for 10-15 minutes or until grill marks develop.
Remove from the grill and let cool at room temperature.
When cool enough to handle, juice the oranges and strain through a fine strainer removing any pulp.
Pour 5 oz of sparkling wine into each glass and top with 1 oz blood orange juice.
Garnish with a sprig of thyme. Enjoy!
