I hope you’re in the mood to celebrate some more! I thought if you have any leftover champagne or sparkling wine, you can use them in these cranberry orange mimosas. Simple to make and perfect with your breakfast, it’s exactly how I would love to start the new year.

Did you end up going out to celebrate? Or did you host a party for family and friends? Or maybe you just wanted to stay in bed and watched the fireworks on tv? I was the latter. Nothing exciting. But that’s because I don’t really love the crowds and crowds of people or struggling to find a way home after the revelry.

I’m so glad that 2017 is now behind us. For most of 2017, my family and I struggled with learning to live with loss and coping with grief among other things. It was overall a difficult year, and it was a struggle to stay positive. But with the start of 2018, I have high hopes and wishes for the months to come. I mentioned yesterday that I hope to travel more, to find new adventures, and to live life to the fullest. Let’s see what adventures come my way. =)

We already have exciting things planned for early 2018. Las Vegas for my cousin’s bachelorette party end of January, my cousin’s long awaited wedding in March, and then I’m finally going on vacation in April to Philadelphia. Soooo excited for all the things to come! Hope your new year is filled with exciting new things too!

In the meantime, let’s welcome in 2018 with these super easy to make cranberry orange mimosas. Cheers!

    In the UK we call orange juice with champagne ‘Buck’s fizz’ but I had never thought of adding cranberry syrup. My personal favourite is home-made sloe gi (or sloe brandy) with champagne / cava / prosseco.
