For the mimosa

  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed blood orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon pomegranate juice
  • champagne or prosecco
  • pomegranate seeds for garnish

For the vanilla bean sugar rim

  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 vanilla bean, seeds removed


  1. Make the vanilla bean sugar. Put sugar onto a plate and add vanilla bean seeds. Massage the sugar and vanilla bean between your fingers to evenly disperse the seeds. This can take a couple of minutes.

  2. Rub an orange slice around the rim of the glass, then rim in the vanilla bean sugar. Add blood orange juice and pomegranate juice to the glass, then top with champagne or prosecco. Sprinkle in some pomegranate seeds to garnish!
