In keeping with my current citrus fascination, I picked up some honey tangerines this past weekend at our local market. I’ve had honey tangerines before and greatly enjoy their honey undertone. I’ve never given much thought, however, to what makes a honey tangerine different than a regular tangerine. Of course, after the sumo oranges, I felt the need to find out more about this and found out that honey tangerines are a cross between a tangerine and an orange. They are also sometimes called Murcott tangerines. They are easy to peel, though have many seeds. They do produce a lovely juice, and, because it’s Friday, and Fridays are worth celebrating, I thought I’d share both some citrus photos, as well as a recipe for a honey tangerine mimosa.

Split the juice between four champagne flutes. Top with champagne. Drink and enjoy!
