I'm a bubbles girl, plain or dressed up like this little beauty.
Love them to celebrate a special occasion, or just that it's Tuesday and I want to feel special!
This is a really simple recipe, it's kind of a fancy version of a mimosa.
Instead of the orange flavor coming from orange juice, you use a little Grand Marnier and a few dash's of orange bitters so it doesn't get too sweet.
