This week’s flavor seemed like a no-brainer. What better way to celebrate today, New Year’s Day, than with brunch, and everyone’s fave brunch beverage, Mimosa? After all, it’s not just New Year’s Day, it’s citrus season too. So get into it and check out this week’s flavor, Mimosa!
Organic navel oranges! Citrus season is in full effect, and if you can give yourself any semblance of warmer weather, eating oranges and citrus fruit this time of year in Minnesota might do it. Probably not though. For the ice cream, we’re going to jam as much orange flavor as we can in it. So first, the orange zest goes into the base before pasteurization. Second, we’re going to juice these bad boys and reduce it down to concentrate flavors.
Next, Champagne. Well technically, sparkling wine, because this Brut doesn’t actually come from the Champagne region of France, but we’re going to call it champagne just to spite all the snobs. The champagne gets reduced with the orange juice to concentrate flavors and gets added into the ice cream base during pasteurization.
Mimosa! Let’s celebrate New Year’s together with a bowl of Mimosa ice cream. It’s a no brainer. Cheers!
