Eggs should be painted not eaten, and if you’re like me, and you’ve made it through your entire life without knowing what Huevos Rancheros is, then you have to try this recipe for Diet Coke Mimosas. This is a great dish to make when you’re hosting brunch and you don’t want to serve anything containing white flour, animal fat, or brioche dipped in egg. It’s an entire meal… in a champagne flute.
Diet Coke Mimosas
1 can Diet Coke
1 large egg white
1 bottle proseco
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon milk thistle (only the name is disgusting)
For the meringue, combine the egg white and the cayenne pepper in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a whisk attachment. Beat the mixture on medium high speed until the egg white forms soft peaks, and set aside.
Muddle the milk thistle in the bottom of a champagne flute. Pour in the proseco, filling the glass halfway and stirring constantly to incorporate the muddled thistle. Add the diet coke, leaving room at the top.
Spoon on the meringue, sprinkle with cayenne, and serve immediately.
