Mimosa Cocktail

Mimosas are an unusual cocktail that is often served with brunch. Most often these cocktails are made with orange juice, but this version is made with Strawberry puree, lemonade, and sparkling Champagne or other sparkling wine. You don’t need to get out your blender to make this simple strawberry mimosa recipe.

It might surprise you what makes this mimosa so delicious.

Why you should try this strawberry mimosa recipe

So what makes this strawberry mimosa unique? It’s a mixture of lemonade and strawberry juice with sparkling wine. What is the result? A not-too-sweet light strawberry-flavored sparkling beverage you are going to love.

If you juice fresh strawberries, they aren’t overly sweet. The juice makes the perfect addition to sparkling wine. You can make these very easily at home. The cocktail has a beautiful color that you will love. If you don’t have a juicer, you can use a can of strawberry nectar, it isn’t a perfect match, but it will certainly do in a pinch.

What Champagne is best for making a mimosa?

The first thing that I will tell you is it isn’t likely to be the best Champagne, but rather a sparkling wine. Champagne means the beverage was made within a particular region of France, but you don’t need that for this drink. You could use it if you wanted, but the fruit juice used pretty much knocks out the nuances of the champagne so that you can save your money.

So if not, Champagne, what should you use? I suggest sparkling wine. There are many outstanding sparkling wines you can use. They don’t need to come from France; they can come from the US. I know many people will recommend Cava or Prosecco. I think both are good choices if there is a chance someone will drink the sparkling wine. These typically will run from 10 to 30 dollars a bottle. I suggest a brut or one that is dry, meaning not too sweet. The fruit juice will be sweet.

Now, if you know you are going to be serving mimosas only, I think you can get by on sparkling wines such as Cooks, Andre, or even other lower-priced options. Again, we are mixing the alcohol, and the nuances are lost. I recommend going with a dryer beverage, but if I know my friends coming over aren’t more experience, wine lovers, I will go with a sweeter sparkling wine.

I hope you enjoy this Strawberry Mimosa.

    Please tell me how you juice the strawberries in a juicer. I’m not sure I can picture that. I have an electric juicer and I cannot imagine. Please help.

    I tried traditional mimosa (made with prosecco and orange juice) and it was delicious. Now I can’t wait to try strawberry one. Personally would never go for strawberry nectar though. I feel that processed ingredient would spoil the idea of refreshing drink. Whenever I buy berries of any sort I take them out of the plastic container and line the container with paper towels then I place berries back in. They last in good shape longer. In this case it means I will be able to enjoy mimosas over and over again.
