Wow, these are sinful. I didn't have real oranges on hand so I replaced the zest with about a tablespoon and a half of lemon curd. I also didn't have champagne, so just did 100% orange juice. They came out amazing. I swear I'm gonna gain ten pounds because I can't stop munching on these.

I used a pink moscato champagne, they came out beautifully only thing I would change is a stronger orange flavor. I used the zest of a whole navel. I’ll maybe try artificial? Maybe not...
