Merry Mimosa Martini - New Year's Martini #2

This is a twist on the classic Mimosa cocktail of Champagne and orange juice, the addition of Cointreau and a bit of sugar pumps up the mimosa to the next level. I use tangerine juice instead of orange juice as well. Tangerines tend to be sweeter and less tart than most varieties of oranges.

If I can get my hands on enough ripe tangerines I will make this with fresh tangerine juice but you can use frozen or bottled juice.

Be sure to add the Champagne after you pour the other ingredients into your chilled martini glass - if you put the Champagne into the martini shaker and shake it with the other ingredients the effervescence of the bubbly can build up and your martini shaker can blow it's top off.
