Blood Orange Mimosa

Blood Orange Mimosa

Two things I absolutely adore are bubbly drinks and metal ware serving pieces. I have a large collection of metal ware pieces and they’re not for show. No sir. I actually USE them and often. I don’t believe in having things to sit on a shelf and look pretty. I want things I can enjoy and use without having to worry something is going to happen to them. Metal Ware you don’t have to worry about. Well except if you drop it on your foot and that hurts. Don’t ask me how I know. Sigh. 

Beatriz Ball Ice Bucket

How gorgeous is that ice bucket? It’s the VENTO ice bucket by Beatriz Ball. I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a more gorgeous ice bucket. It’s fine metal ware and it’s made by HAND using the ancient art of sand casting. “For over twenty years, designer Beatriz Ball has worked hand-in-hand with skilled artisans in the outskirts of Mexico City, jointly creating updated, innovative designs in a special lustrous alloy of several metals. Each piece in the Beatriz Ball Collection speaks for itself, reflecting the creativity of the artist, skill of the craftsmen, enthusiasm of the sales force, and exceptional customer service that stand behind every piece.”  As it’s more than just a pretty face, these pieces can go from the freezer to the oven to the table, and they’re easy to clean. No polishing required. You know how much I hate to clean so this is perfection.

Blood Orange Mimosas

It’s perfect to keep a bottle of Prosecco chilled before making a batch of these blood orange mimosas.
