The Recipe How-To

“A festive treat for any occasion!”

Step-by-Step Instructions to Create Champagne Foam with Spiced Oranges Recipe
1. Gelatin Preparation

In a small bowl, mix unflavored gelatin with 1/4 cup cold water and allow to stand for five minutes. Add 1/4 cup boiling water and stir until dissolved.

2. Marmalade Warm-Up

Melt 1/2 cup of orange marmalade in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the dissolved gelatine, the juice from four oranges (about two cups), a pinch of ground cloves, and a dash of ground cinnamon. Whisk until well combined.

3. Addition of Bubbly

Once combined, quickly whisk in one bottle of chilled champagne cocktail until smooth.

4. Spiced Orange Simple Syrup

In another small saucepan, combine one cup of fresh orange juice, half-cup of blood orange juice, half-cup of sugar, and two dashes of angostura bitters over medium heat. Stir in two slices each of lemon and orange zest to create a well-spiced simple syrup.

5. Serving Preparation

Pour the champagne foam into four cups prepared with a coating of canola oil cooking spray, leaving enough room at the top to add the spiced orange simple syrup later.

6. Brief Chill & Top-Off

Place the cups into the refrigerator for about two hours or until set up. After that is done, remove from chill zone and proceed to pour some spiced orange simple syrup on top.

7. Add Some Zest!

Garnish each serving with an elegant finishing touch of an orange slice on top.


Substitutions and Variations

“Top off your evening with a touch of elegance”

Looking to add a little twist to this champagne foam recipe? Here are some substitutions and variations you can try:

– Blood orange juice: You can replace the orange juice with blood orange juice for a slightly sweeter and tangier flavor. This substitution works great if you’re looking to add color to your champagne foam.

– Orange liqueur: If you don’t have orange liqueur, triple sec or Cointreau will work as a good substitute. The addition of orange liqueur amplifies the citrusy taste of the dish.

– Spices: For a more flavorful spiced oranges topping, mix things up by swapping out the cinnamon and cloves for ginger and nutmeg. You can also experiment with other warm spices such as cardamom or allspice.

– Sugar alternative: If you prefer a healthier take on the recipe, you can substitute the sugar with honey or maple syrup for a natural sweetener. Stevia or monk fruit sweetener can also be used as a sugar substitute.

– Savory toppings: While this recipe is inherently sweet, adding savory toppings like smoked salmon or roasted pumpkin creates an indulgent brunch dish. Or why not make it boozy with a gin fizz or whisky sour cocktail?

There are so many ways to switch up this recipe to suit your taste preferences, so don’t be afraid to get creative!

Serving and Pairing

“Champagne dreams and spiced oranges”


This champagne foam with spiced oranges recipe is an elegant and indulgent dessert perfect for any special occasion. The bright, zesty flavors of the spiced oranges are balanced by the creamy and effervescent champagne foam, creating a luxurious treat that’s sure to impress your guests.

When serving this dish, it’s important to consider the pairing. The spiced oranges are acidic and tangy, so they pair well with creamy and rich elements like ice cream, whipped cream, or custard. You can also serve them alongside a cheese plate for a more savory pairing.

For the champagne foam, you’ll want to stick with light and fruity wines that won’t overpower the delicate bubbles in the foam. A blanc de blancs or brut champagne would be an excellent choice, as would a sparkling wine from Italy or Spain.

If you prefer a cocktail pairing, consider making an orange champagne cocktail or a blood orange gin cocktail. The citrus notes in both drinks will complement the spiced oranges beautifully.

Overall, this dish is a showstopper and deserves a pairing that’s just as impressive. Whether you serve it as dessert or as part of a larger meal, your guests are sure to be impressed by the decadent flavors and luxurious presentation of this champagne foam with spiced oranges recipe.

Make-Ahead, Storing and Reheating

“The perfect pairing of sweet and bubbly”

This champagne foam with spiced oranges recipe can be made ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator until serving. After preparing the spiced oranges and champagne foam, they can be covered and refrigerated separately for up to 2 days. When ready to serve, remove them from the refrigerator to allow them to reach room temperature.

To reheat the spiced oranges, place them in a small saucepan over medium heat and add a tablespoon of water. Heat for 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally until warmed through.

The champagne foam should not be reheated as it will lose its frothy texture. Instead, give it a quick whisk until it becomes light and fluffy again.

If you have any leftover champagne foam, store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours. It may lose some of its texture during storage, but you can give it another whisk before using it again.

Overall, this recipe is easy to make ahead of time and perfect for parties or events. Just keep the spiced oranges and champagne foam separate until ready to serve, then garnish with fresh orange slices before enjoying!

Firstly, it’s important to make sure that the gelatin is fully dissolved before adding it to the mixture. This will ensure that the foam sets properly and has a smooth texture.

Next, be sure to chill the mixture for at least 2 hours before whipping it into a foam. This will allow it to thicken properly and create the perfect texture.

For a fun twist on the recipe, try adding a dash of ground cloves or ground cinnamon to your sugar mixture before whisking. This will give your foam a warm and cozy flavor that’s perfect for fall.

Finally, when serving and pairing the Champagne Foam With Spiced Oranges, consider what flavors will complement the dish best.
