Nothing says you’ve started off the weekend strong like a mimosa. However, for those who aren’t quite ready to get tipsy at 10 am, allow us to offer a compromise in the form of a mimosa muffin. Biting into a mimosa sounds like a strange concept, but after tasting these mini muffins you’ll understand. Mix up a classic muffin batter (sugar, flour, baking powder—the usual suspects) but leave room for some fun twists: orange zest, orange juice, and plenty of Champagne go right into the mixture. Spoon the batter into a mini muffin tin and bake off those 2-bite beauties. Of course, you could make normal-sized muffins, but then you can’t stick a toothpick through them and lay it over a Champagne flute, edible garnish-style.Mini Mimosa Muffins
