Meyer lemon Mimosas Recipe

One of the most crucial components of brunch: MIMOSAS!!! And these Meyer Lemon Mimosas are going to dance us right through Easter, into Mother’s day, and straight into June.

This recipe is crazy easy — I made a simple syrup with sugar, water, and the juice of two Meyer lemons. Sort of like making lemonade. And then adding champagne. I talked a little bit about my love for mimosas when we made Slow Cooker Blueberry Crunch French Toast. You really can’t beat champagne with a splash of juice for breakfast.

I wish I could get on the Bloody Mary bus, but I don’t love tomato juice, so… I will just continue to be jealous of people that can have bacon in their drinks.

Sounds delicious! Can the syrup be made a couple days ahead of time, or does it need to be fresh?
