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!)
