Leprechaun Mimosas


This makes 4 drinks. To make these mimosas non-alcoholic, omit the vodka and replace the Champagne with Sparkling White Grape Juice.



  • Pour 2 oz of orange juice into 4 champagne glasses.
  • Add in .5 oz of vodka into each, and stir.
  • Top off with champagne leaving a bit of room at the top.
  • Quickly pour in .5 oz of blue curacao, so it settles and mixes at the bottom creating a layered effect.

Serve immediately and enjoy!

1 – In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the shallot, garlic, spinach and veggies of choice. Cook until vegetables are tender and spinach is wilted, about 5 minutes. Pour the vegetables into a large bowl and set them aside while you cook the pasta and sauce.

2 – Bring a large pot of water to the boil and salt generously. Cook pasta according to package instructions.

3 – While the pasta is cooking, make the creamy lemon sauce. Place the large skillet you used to cook the vegetables back on the stove and melt the butter. Whisk in the flour, whisking until you don’t have any clumps. Slowly whisk in the almond milk, about ½ cup at a time, whisking vigorously. Add the lemon zest and keep whisking until the sauce comes to a boil. Reduce heat to low and whisk occasionally until the sauce thickens.  Add in the lemonade and sliced lemons. Season the sauce with salt and black pepper, to taste.

4 – Drain the pasta and add it to the thickened lemon sauce. Stir in the cooked vegetables and stir until the pasta and vegetables are well coated with the creamy lemon sauce. Remove the lemon slices.

5 – Garnish with fresh basil and parmesan cheese, vegan parmesan cheese, or nutritional yeast, if using.

Serve warm.

Grapefruit Sorbet



1 – Combine 1 cup of grapefruit juice with the sugar in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir occasionally until the sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat.

2 – In a bowl, combine the grapefruit and sugar syrup with the remaining grapefruit juice and Campari. Chill completely in the fridge.

3 – Freeze the mixture in an ice cream machine according to the manufacturer’s instructions. After churning, let harden in the freezer for at least 2 hours before serving.
