Wilmington’s Favorite Mimosas: We Asked, They Shared
Wilmington Wine features specialty mimosas every Sunday, starting at noon. John Willse, proprietor, offers a variation that solves the conundrum “mimosa or bloody mary.”
John Willse’s Bloody Mary Mimosa
Fill a flute 1/2 full with brut champagne (dry)
Pour in Texas Pete’s Bloody Mary Mix leaving space for these additions:

2 dashes each Berg & Hauck’s celery bitters, Creole bitters, and aromatic bitters

Sprinkle coarse pink salt
Freshly ground black pepper
Garnish with your choice of pimento olive, pickled okra, green been, etc
Don’t forget the bacon!
