Garnish with a slice of citrus if you have one, but if not or if you just don't care enough to get all Martha Stewart about it, screw it and drink as is. Feel the FREEDOM.

*It is named, as a more badder-ass cousin of the mimosa, after another, more badder-ass sensitive plant. I believe that I invented this drink while eating crepes at Citizen, but I'm sure not, because truly there is nothing new under the sun. It's still great though, a little tarter and more exciting than a mimosa. FREEDOM!
