Before New Years, I was discussing the plans for the 2016 holidays with RVJedeye over on Twitter. Who oh so casually mentioned that we needed a RVJedeye cocktail for the Georgia Tech-Kentucky TaxSlayer Bowl.
And by casual, I mean with all the subtlety of a sledgehammer!

See, what did I tell you?
But his wish is my command! Or is that his command is your drink?
In any case, I put down some rules – it needed to be easy.
This was for a tailgate with an 11:00 AM kickoff.
Hey, we here on the East Coast are lucky, we normally don’t have games before 12:00 noon. We don’t like early games and kickoffs before noon should be banned!
It’s also New Years Eve, so festive is in order. A little champagne never hurt a tailgater!
And since the game was in Florida, some fruit wouldn’t hurt. And RVJedeye said mango was a favorite.
Thus, the Jedeye Mimosa was born at the TaxSlayer Bowl.
Champagne Flutes Made for RVers
OK, these champagne flutes aren’t really made for RVers. But they sure are convenient.
Unlike most situations, the two piece construction on these is actually nice. It makes storing the champagne flutes that much easier since they break down into a much flatter storage area. You can also clean them (handwash only) and use them again.
Get a package to keep in your RV for early morning tailgates!
- 3 fl oz Mango Juice
- 1 fl oz Malibu Rum
- 2 fl oz Champagne
- Add mango juice to a champagne flute.
- Add Malibu (coconut) Rum.
- Add champagne.
- Serve cold.
Who Else Wants a Drink Named After Them?
So let’s recap: demand a drink, get a blog post! Please don’t try this at home (I’m not sure my liver can handle it!) Well, you can try the drink, but don’t count on the post!
