Thank you Rio Luna Organic Peppers for sponsoring this post!
With New Year’s Eve right around the corner I thought I’d share some delicious bubbly festive drinks with you to ring in 2020. Wow 2020. As a proud member of the “Oregon Trail Generation” (woohoo 1982) I still swear the 80’s were only 15 years ago. Anyway I’m looking forward to the next decade and living my best life in my fast approaching 40’s. This spicy Green Chile Tangerine Blissini will surely help.

This Green Chile Tangerine Blissini is an easy-drinking cocktail that is a riff on a mimosa crossed with a Bellini. It’s suitable for midnight NYE toasts as well as Sunday brunch. This drink has a mild kick thanks to Rio Luna Organics Diced Green Chiles, which are infused into fresh tangerine or clementine juice. Top it off with bubbly prosecco or champagne and a little garnish of fresh chiles, a clementine slice and fresh mint and you’re good to go.
