A Fun Christmas Morning Tradition
Christmas morning is all about memories and traditions. Our newest Christmas morning tradition is Christmas morning mimosas.
As our family has grown up, our traditions have grown up also. We went from Christmas morning hot chocolate to Christmas morning mimosas and it has been so much fun!
A New Tradition – A Christmas Morning Mimosa
When my boys were little, it was hard to imagine what Christmas morning would be like once they were adults. It seemed so far off into the future.
Well, somehow, they have grown up, but I still feel like I am the same age. Funny how that happens!
Now that my boys are all adults, living on their own, making their way in the world, our Christmas mornings have a few new traditions.
We have so many traditions that were started over twenty years ago and yes, we still do them today.
We still pile in the car in our jammies on Christmas Eve and head out to look at the Christmas lights. Dave still reads T’was the Night Before Christmas to us all before we head to bed on Christmas Eve.
On Christmas Day we still open the stockings in the order of Youngest to Oldest and open our gifts from Oldest to Youngest.
(I won’t mention that I am actually the oldest. Oops.)
And I make my mom’s famous Sausage Egg Casserole every year with a smile, knowing my four siblings are doing the exact same thing, even though they are scattered all over the country.
So when I decided last year to make Christmas Mimosas on Christmas morning … they were a huge hit.
And now they are another Christmas morning tradition.
These blue ice molds are just so much fun. You can fill them with anything you want so I chose orange juice, cranberry juice, cranberries, and a bit of fresh rosemary.
Look how easy they are to make!
The Champagne glasses are from Anthropologie.
I made them on Christmas Eve, in about ten minutes, and froze them overnight.
After we opened our gifts, I put the molds in Champagne glasses and poured the champagne over the top.

I love that the color of the champagne changed immediately. Plus they tasted fantastic and stayed very cold. I can honestly say I had never had such a wonderful Mimosa before!
I can’t wait to make these for New Year too.
