    I am enjoying a glass as we speak!! I love this! I used everything but the kumquats. It's refreshing and full of flavor. I could see this drink taking the place of mimosas if you kick things off early. I think I would like to try a Granny Smith apple next time to make it a little more tart.

    Really enjoyed this recipe. Didn't have any luck finding some of the ingredients so I left them out and it was still delicious!! (Left out: star anise, orange Muscat, and kumquats).
