Frozen Mango Mimosa Parfait

All good recipes start with amazing ingredients and I had the pleasure of creating a dish based on the delicious Soleil Mango Mimosa. Lightly sparkling Chenin Blanc blended with pure Peruvian Mangos, it’s fresh and succulent , kissed with the unmistakable flavor of real and ripe mangos. I’ve created a sort of deconstructed Lassi, (an Indian beverage made for summer days, that blends mango and yogurt).  To make it a more summery and special occasion dessert, I’ve frozen mangos to create a smooth lush base, then used the Mimosa to make a granite, adding the crunch of ice crystals, and topped it all off with a tangy, yet subtly rich yogurt cream, to play with the zingy wine.

****Serves 4

Pour half the Mimosa into ice cube trays and place in freezer.

Just before serving, chill martini or preferred glasses. Turn the ice cubes into a large cold bowl and crush into large crystals with a masher or fork.  Return to freezer.

Place the frozen mango chunks in a food processor and, with motor running, gradually add a slow stream of the remaining Mimosa until a thick glossy consistency, similar to a thick custard or mousse.

Whisk together the yogurt and Crème Fraiche.

Spoon the frozen mango mixture into the base of the glasses, top with the granite and add a dollop of the yogurt cream.  Decorate as desired with mango and strawberries.

Enjoy with a glass of the Mango Mimosa.

The Best Sangria Made with Rojo Dulce


In the spirit of summer I have created a Summer sangria made with Vinos De Los Muertos Rojo Dulce that will help you beat the heat. Although, a glass of full bodied red wine is one of my favorite  drinks to wind down with, during the summer it can be difficult to enjoy something so heavy in the heavy in the heat. This fresh, fruity, and chilled sangria is great for summer gatherings or just to keep on hand for relaxation.

2 Bottles Vinos De Los Muertos Rojo Dulce

3 Cups Club Soda (plain or lime flavored)

1 Cup Orange Juice

¼ Cup triple sec

2 Small oranges sliced

2 limes sliced

2 green apples sliced

1 Package blackberries

1 Package raspberries

Combine all ingredients in large punch bowl or pitcher and allow to sit for at least 24 hour for flavors to combine

Mimosa Cupcakes! Great for Bridal and Baby Showers, Weddings, and Brunch!

In honor of my favorite bubbly beverage, Soleil Mimosa, I have created a mimosa cupcake that is as equally delightful and fresh as Soleil Mimosa itself. For those of you who are not familiar with Soleil Mimosa; it is a white wine based refreshment consisting of one part premium white wine and one part thoroughly chilled fresh orange juice. I chose this particular product not only because it is one of my favorite bubbly beverages but also for its convenience and high quality ingredients. The fact that the mimosa is already mixed saves you from having to buy both orange juice and champagne, not to mention the flavor is unmatchable. The best part is that the recipe does not require you to use the entire bottle of Mimosa so you will be able to enjoy a mimosa while you bake you cupcakes. The recipe uses a boxed cake mix so they are relatively easy to make. These Mmm-imosa cupcakes are delish and are great for bridal showers, baby showers, weddings, or birthdays.

 FYI- You should be able to find Soleil Mimosa at your local grocery store or liquor store but if you can not find them you can purchase them online by clicking this link> BUY MIMOSA
