Today I wanted to share with you a Thirsty Thursday treat! I'll definitely need an adult beverage when I come home tonight, and one of my favorites that we always seem to have the ingredients for is the mimosa! Now, I'm sure most of you know how to make a mimosa (if not, it's just equal parts sparkling wine/champagne and orange juice), but I bet many of you have yet to hear about the new Coppola Sophia cans. That's right, I said "cans."
My first reaction to sparkling wine in a can was not a good one, but I've had Sophia before, and I knew that while it wasn't the best sparkling wine out there, it was certainly good enough for mimosas. Plus our favorite liquor store had the cans on sale for $1 each, so I had to give them a try!
I love that the cans come with a little bendy straw, and that there's just enough in each one to make a couple mimosas. The other great thing about using these Sophia cans as opposed to opening an entire bottle of sparkling wine is that I don't waste anything. Although my fiance also enjoys mimosas, he doesn't drink them as often as I do which means I would either have to finish an entire bottle of wine myself (which is a bad idea), or we would have to put half the bottle back in the fridge and let it go flat (also a bad idea). Needless to say, I'm totally sold on these fun little cans!
|Yeah, I drink low acid orange juice, so what?!|
Of course, you can make other drinks besides mimosas with them, such as bellinis or my personal favorite, kir royals, but you could also just take these along on a picnic and sip them in the sun!
Have you ever tried wine in a can? What other ones out there are worth a shot? I know I can be a bit of a wine snob (no Two Buck Chuck for me), but I'm pretty open about packaging, so long as the product inside is delicious!
