Festive Mimosas to spruce up any Mother’s Day brunch

Festive Mimosas to spruce up any Mother’s Day brunch

It’s hard to go wrong with mimosas – a fancy, flavourful drink that lifts any old breakfast into “brunch territory”. Mix equal parts orange juice and champagne, and you’re ready to go! While one should always drink alcohol in moderation, drinking mimosa really isn’t that bad.

It’s hard to mess up, so experiment with different carbonated beverages or fruit juice flavours, or add different frozen or fresh fruit into the mix. Use your favourite club soda if you don’t have the brands/flavours below.

If you aren’t concerned about sugar, carbonated beverages like Sprite and Ginger ale are also often mixed with orange juice to make an alcohol-free option. Store-bought limeade is another easy (but very sweet) option.

Here are a few ways to enjoy the popular drink, with a few tweaks depending on what you’re going for. Don’t feel like measuring? Go for about 50/50 on the juice and carbonated drinks. Swap the champagne for any sparkling wine in each recipe.

The Classic (tweak the ratio to your liking)

4 ounces champagne

2 ounces freshly squeezed orange juice

The low-sugar option

3 ounces champagne

1 can of pineapple strawberry La Croix Curate

1 sliced strawberry

We saw this recipe over at DesigningVibes.com. The author suggests using Extra Dry champagne, for added sweetness, or Brut, for its lower sugar content. We love the strawberries for their added sweetness/flavour and can also see this recipe working with other freshly cut fruit, or a little bit of frozen berries of any kind.

The Virgin

2 ounces orange juice

2 ounces pineapple juice

4 ounces Perrier l'orange flavour

Something new

2 ounces cranberry juice

4 ounces champagne

Splash of Triple Sec (or other orange liqueur)

While this doesn’t use fresh juice, you can buy cranberry juice with different levels of sweetness, to your taste.
