This beverage was the brilliant idea of Ms. Witty and Pretty herself, Ashley Hesseltine. Last Tuesday, we found ourselves hard at work exploring the paradise island of Isla Mujeres, located just off the coast of Cancun. It's there where we had, quite possibly, one of the best breakfasts of my life at Mango Café, a charming, off-the-beaten-path, 10-table restaurant with a very cool, down-to-earth vibe. At 10 a.m. mimosas were a must, and that's when the selection of fresh fruit juices written on the chalk board - mango, tamarind and watermelon, to name a few - inspired one of the world's best ideas. "Wait. Can we have our mimosas with watermelon?" Ash said. "Sure," said Polo Avila, the owner and our new hero. I'm just the messenger.
Strawberry Champagne Sangria
One of my best friends, Daniella of Pinkee's Bowtique, came over for a mini "fit cook" photo shoot, and who better to kill a bottle of champagne with than one of your best friends? In all honesty, I used prosecco, because it's what I had on hand, but this delicious cocktail is meant to blow your boring mimosas out of the water.
NICE TO MEET YOU.
