No offense to OJ, but the mimosa can use more sizzle. And you’ll find that at Seattle’s juicebox. I’ve taken their creative and fresh blends home and created my own mimosas, but I highly recommend visiting their charming location in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood (the place I call home) to enjoy a refreshing, fizzy delight on premise.
I am fond of a current mimosa offering with beet and apple juice for its mesmerizing color as well as the glassware used to convey this brunchtime liquid delight. But also (duh) for its flavor. Beets add a nice savory component while apples lend a fruity perkiness. An unusual yet unusually awesome combination.
I’d also be remiss not to mention the food at juicebox. It’s not just about juice! I’m in love with the tuna confit sandwich on housemade flatbread, which additionally contains yukon gold potato, taggiasca olive tapenade, soft boiled egg, preserved lemon, salsa verde, and lettuce. One of my favorite sandwiches in the city.
Further juicebox adventures: Watermelon, Key Lime, and Carrot Mimosas (whoa!)

I love this! I agree with you on the mimosas. I have never been a huge fan as they seem a little boring to me. Love the beet and apple juice idea. I will have to try it. The Juicebox sounds like a good place to visit.
Look forward to hearing your thoughts. It’s such a creative combination to perk up your mimosa. Thanks for your comment.
The beet juice twist sounds so interesting!
I agree and the color is so pretty.
I am a fan of mimosa’s but I love beets – so I bet I would love this!
Can’t wait for you to try it.
OMG. First it’s gorgeous! But the combo of beet and apple would be fantastic. Can’t wait to give it a shot.
I know, in the natural light it really glows. Look forward to hearing about your upgraded mimosa. Thanks for the comment.
Somehow I’ve made it 33 years of my life without ever trying a beet. I need to remedy this, and soon. I know where I’m headed next time I’m on your side of the sound!
Whoa! Well, I can think of no better way to get started with beets than in a mimosa! I’ll buy you one. Would be honored to welcome you to the world of beets.
[…] dry, making it a good choice for mimosas or other sparkling wine cocktails (I’ve got my eye on this one made with beet and apple juice!). You can find it for as low as $10, making it a good bulk wine […]
