A Tale Of Cocktails #11

Morning Glory
3 1/2 oz champagne
1/2 oz Triple Sec
2 oz orange juice
Orange garnish
Taste: 8         
Look: 6         
Cost: 8          
Name: 7
Prep: 8
Alcohol: 3
Overall: 7
Preparation: Combine ingredients in a champagne glass and stir.  Add garnish and serve.
General Comments: Essentially, this is a slightly strong mimosa with added Triple Sec.  Not exactly a fascinating proposition.  On the other hand, adding more kick to a mimosa whilst also increasing the inherent orangey nature of the drink isn't a bad idea - indeed it works quite well.

Nice name, too.  Clearly in the long-standing tradition of suggestive cocktail titles, with the added bonus of implying this can be drunk for breakfast.  That's all the excuse I need...
