Hi guys! A brief update on what’s been going on lately. I started my new job and last weekend I flew to NOLA to see a dear friend get married! In between, I’ve had some technical issues that has made it incredibly difficult to get a blog post up. I’m hoping to get my technical issues fully cleared up in the next few days because I cannot wait to share my New Orleans photos!
Tomorrow is National Friendship Day and I’m teaming up today with IZZE to celebrate my friends the best way I know how…Mimosas *Donna Meagle Voice*
IZZE Sparkling Clementine is the perfect substitute for orange juice because let’s be real, you can’t go wrong with more bubbles. It’s also much lighter than OJ, which is a big plus for me.
For my National Friendship Day brunch theme, I turned to one of my favorite animals: The flamingo! Did you know that a group of flamingos is called a flamingle? Forget T Swift, flamingos are the real #squadgoals.
A mimosa bar is easy to pull together and with IZZE, you can offer your friends a variety of different mixers. My favorites are sparkling clementine, sparkling blackberry, sparkling peach and sparkling pomegranate. Sparkling grapefruit makes a killer Paloma (Just sayin’).
You’ve got your array of mixers, put your bubbly on ice (I’m a fan of TJ’s Blanc de Blancs for mimosas) and then put out fresh fruit to add to their drink. Because you know, you’re worried about your friends’ health and want to make sure they’re getting their daily fruit intake.
With the flamingo-themed mimosa bar set up, you can focus on what’s really important: Spending time cheers-ing with your friends.
