    Thanks for blogging today.

    And for posting these. I love champagne! And the part about having some leftover….nah, probably not.

    These look wonderful!! Orange push-ups were a fave of mine as a kid. And mimosas a fave as an adult. These are the best of both worlds.

    Merry Christmas, Jessica! Hope you and Mr Sweet & the family have an awesome holiday :)

    Mmm…creamsicles were one of my favorite treats as a kid. This drink sounds like it would be great for New Year’s Eve. I’ve never heard of marshmallow vodka but I am going to try and seek it out now. Thanks and happy holidays.

    It’s a tradition for me to have mimosa’s for Christmas, I have the fresh orange juice champagne and I am all set, then you go and pull marshmallow vodka. I never heard of it! Now I have to leave my house today and search for it!! I guess I have my Christmas goal!

    Jessica, I wanted to wish you a very merry Christmas! I love reading your blog! You set me on my way to making bread, baking and trying new things. Thank you!

    Girl, I swear we are sisters from another dimension. I crafted a drink nearly identical to this over the summer while on a cruise. We’d carried on a bottle of bubbly, and smuggled some whipped cream vodka. For a few mornings, we had orange juice delivered to our stateroom, and we had happy hour first thing in the morning. My mother-in-law loved it so much, I bought her a bottle of whipped cream vodka for Christmas :) I think she may bring it over tomorrow so we can have an early morning happy hour and revisit the awesome times of our cruise!

    This was even delicious without vodka, and subbing champagne with sparkling cider (for those folks who have other kinds of buns in the oven this holiday season ;) Yum! Thx Jess – Merry Christmas!

    My favorite champagne is almond flavored. I wonder if that would work well with the marshmallow vodka. Hmmm….. :)

      I want almond champagne! Where do you get that?

        The Wilson Creek Winery in Temecula, California makes it. Temecula is too far of a drive from LA for a bottle of bubbly. :) Fortunately, the local Cost Plus World Market store carries it. If you go to the Wilson Creek website they may have a list of stores that carry it. It’s delicious and has a great price point!
