- 4 cups fresh-squeezed orange juice
- 1 cup frozen raspberries
- 1 and 1/2 cups sparkling wine*
- 3 orange slices (optional for garnish)
2. Serve over ice in juice glasses. Cut 3 orange slices in half, and add an orange half to each glass rim as garnish if desired; the garnish reminded me of a little sun rising on the horizon.
*For the sparkling wine, it doesn't have to be true champagne: prosecco, cava, or American sparkling wines will all work just as well here. Either way, dozens of sparkling wines are on the vegan safe-list at barnivore.com, including the ubiquitous Veuve Clicquot, so you shouldn't have much trouble. Choose a semisweet variety (often labeled demi-sec), not one that's extra dry (brut).

One of the most refreshing brunch cocktails I've ever had - a cross between a raspberry sorbet punch and a mimosa. I liked that the drink was only lightly effervescent from the champagne, but didn't have the strong taste of alcohol. Zero complaints on this one.
