Three Springtime Mimosas

 

 

 

Whether for Easter brunch, a bridal shower, Mother's Day or just because, on any Sunday, a mimosa is the perfect springtime cocktail. It is light, refreshing and when you add a garnish, like raspberries, it couldn't be prettier to serve. Of course, the traditional mimosa made with orange juice and champagne is lovely, but you can also give some variety to your guests by offering some unexpected flavors to choose from.

 

From left to right in the photo, there are three types of mimosas shown; all simple to make and all delicious.

Pineapple Mimosa - fill a champagne glass with 1/2 champagne and 1/2 pineapple juice. Garnish with raspberries or a thin pineapple slice.

Traditional Mimosa - fill a champagne glass with 1/2 champagne and 1/2 orange juice. Garnish with raspberries, pomegranate seeds or a thin orange slice.

Sparkling Grapefruit Mimosa - fill a champagne glass with 1/2 champagne and 1/2 sparkling grapefruit juice. Garnish with raspberries or a sectioned grapefruit.

 

Another way to serve mimosas, when entertaining, is to set up a pretty mimosa bar for your guests to serve themselves. Simply place the different juices in beautiful glass pitchers, fill interesting bowls with a variety of fruit for garnishing and place bottles of champagne and prosecco over ice.

Happy Tuesday!
