If you're like me and buy clementines by the crate when they're in season, you may be familiar with the last few that threaten to go bad before you can finish them all. Unwilling to let any go to waste, I juiced 8-10 clementines to yield about a pint of juice, and the next morning I made clementine/cava mimosas with brunch. The low-acid, sweet juice pairs well with crisp, dry, easy-drinking Segura Viudas Brut Cava. And this bubbly treat goes especially well with pancakes! Check out the current issue (page 18) for other ideas of winter citrus to use to spruce up your drinks this season.
