I love calling July 4th “Independence Day” because not only are we celebrating our national freedom, but we’re saluting our strong independent spirits! In my home town of Atlanta, a favorite holiday tradition is getting up early to watch the Peachtree Road Race. Sure, the runners are inspiring, but I particularly enjoy seeing the buttoned-up Southern grande dames flaunting their high-spirited uniqueness with crazy hats and patriotic outfits on the sidelines! It’s that independence and individuality that we like to celebrate every day at TGK.
Every true Southerner knows that the spectator sport of road race watching requires a pitcher of mimosas. Here’s a simple recipe to whip up for your early morning July 4th celebrations. Sure to please party-goers in any corner of America!
1 bottle sparkling wine (champagne), well chilled
1 carton good quality orange juice, well chilled
Mix equal parts wine and juice in a large pitcher. Stir gently and serve immediately.
