Looking for an interesting twis on a Mimosa?
The online foodie journal The Heavy Table suggests you check out Kingfield's Blackbird Cafe. Alongside Whittier's Eat Street Social and the Warehouse District's Bachelor Farmer, the Southwest Minneapolis eatery's Kir Royale was picked as one of the magazine's favorite brunch cocktails this week.
If mimosas strike you as overly sweet, plan a rendezvous with the Kir Royale ($5). A French drink traditionally made with crème de cassis, the kir royale is made with currant puree and champagne at Blackbird. The tart currant lays a robust base for the bubbly crown, and the slight chunkiness of the puree adds some personality.
