Your Weekly Libation: Farewell Edition

Hello there, Weekly Libation fans. It might seem odd to you that, yet again, I’m posting this week’s “Your Weekly Libation” but this time I’m afraid I can’t promise you Jim will be back. Your usual libation mentor has moved on to bigger and better things, and unfortunately that means “Your Weekly Libation” will be retiring.

But, of course, we had to leave you readers with one last offering – one that I thoroughly enjoy and I think you will too.

It’s a classic, and most everyone that’s heard of it knows how to make one, but Your Weekly Libation is not about making assumptions, now is it?

Without further adieu….we present:

The Mimosa

A classy, yet somewhat girly beverage that’s perfect for wishing Jim (who admittedly preferred “girly” beverages) the best of luck.

Don’t forget the champagne flutes!


2 oz. orange juice


Pour orange juice into a champagne flute over two ice cubes. Fill with chilled champagne, stir very gently, and serve.

But as we draw “Your Weekly Libation” to a close, we hope that you keep in mind you can always submit YOUR beverages of choice to Recipe4Living so that others can enjoy them too.
