Mimosa - International Women's Day 2014

Mimosa to celebrate International Women’s Day 2014

International Women’s Day started as a protest against women’s inequality.

And whilst it is certainly not yet time to stop fighting the good fight, we can still take the opportunity to celebrate the achievements that have been made so far.

8th March is also a day to celebrate and appreciate the wonderful women we have in our lives.

In Italy, International Women’s Day (‘Festa delle Donne’) is celebrated with the exchange of “mimosa” – bunches of bright yellow wattle. Ladies’ Lunches or Girls’ Night Out are also all the rage.

The UN theme for International Women’s Day 2014 is “Equality for Women is Progress for All”.

And so as to be able to say ‘Here, here’ to that, here is the recipe for the Mimosa cocktail: 1 part Prosecco (or other sparkling wine) plus 1 part orange juice served in a champagne flute. Mix well and serve amongst good friends.
