Four Mimosa Recipes for Your Next Brunch

Featured Image

Mimosa: mi·mo·sa (noun): mimosa; plural noun: mimosas

  • an Australian acacia tree with delicate fernlike leaves and yellow flowers that are used by florists.
  • another name for the silk tree.
  • a plant of a genus that includes the sensitive plant. 
  • a cocktail composed of equal parts champagne and chilled citrus fruit juice, usually orange juice unless otherwise specified.

We learn something new every day, but we’re going with option four for the sake of relevance. Mimosas have long been a brunch favorite: a little bubbly, a little fresh orange juice, and some time with friends. What’s not to love? We also love to stir things up a bit by trying new recipes. If you love a traditional Mimosa, we think you’ll love these too.

You don’t have to use a true Champagne (which, fun fact: is only when it comes from the region of Champagne, France). For our intents and purposes, any sparkling wine you enjoy is perfect. Consider a Cava or a Prosecco, which are both affordable and enjoyable. 

Here are Four Mimosa Recipes to Try for Your Next Brunch

Creamsicle Mimosas 

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup orange juice
  • 2 ounces marshmallow vodka
  • 1 bottle of Champagne (lucky for you, this great bottle happens to be just $30, more than half off. Supplier pricing errors = great savings)
  • Whipped cream + crystal sprinkles for garnish

Combine orange juice and vodka into a measuring cup. Pour about 1/4 of a cup into each glass, then fill the remaining space with champagne. Top with a squirt of whipped cream and crystal sprinkles. Serves 4.

Blood Orange Mimosa

Ingredients:

  • 1 bottle Prosecco–this one has a delicate hint of sweetness that will compliment, but not overpower, the blood orange
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh blood orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon superfine granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons orange liqueur (recommended: Grand Marnier)


Combine fresh blood orange juice with sugar and orange liqueur in a large measuring cup and stir to combine. Cover and refrigerate until chilled. To serve, pour into the bottom of Champagne glasses and slowly top off with ice-cold Prosecco. Serves 4-6.

Unicorn Mimosa

Ingredients:

Drizzle strawberry syrup into champagne flutes. Combine orange juice and vanilla vodka in a measuring cup and mix. Fill champagne flutes approximately two thirds of the way with the orange juice mixture and slowly top off with chilled champagne. If desired, sprinkle in some edible glitter while the champagne is still fizzing and plop a chunk of cotton candy on top. Get creative and drink from a fun straw for the true unicorn mimosa experience. Serves 4-6.

Holiday Mimosa

Ingredients:

Pour a glass 3/4 full of Prosecco, top with cranberry juice, and garnish with a whole cranberry floater–it’s dry, it’s festive, it’s delicious, and it’s as simple as that!

 

BONUS: The sister to Mimosa is none other than the Bellini. Still classy and bubbly, just turned peachy sweet.

Bellini

Ingredients:

  • 3 ounces of Prosecco sparkling wine
  • 2 ounces fresh peach puree or juice

Mix sparkling wine and peach puree and serve in a champagne flute.
