This easy to make Strawberry Mimosa recipe elevates the classic mimosa with the addition of fresh strawberries and the use of pink champagne. Perfect for brunch, this sparkling wine cocktail is a nice choice for Mother's Day, Wedding events or Easter. I like to make fresh strawberry mimosas for romantic breakfasts as well, such as on Valentine's Day or a getaway.
Strawberry Mimosas: A Twist on the Classic
Strawberry mimosas are refreshing cocktails that are a lovely fit for any celebration. They are a perfect choice for Mother's day or Easter brunch. A twist on classic mimosas that won't throw anyone.
This subtle change in the traditional version maintains the elegance of the champagne drink. Of course, you can make mimosas any day. You don't need a special occasion to enjoy a few strawberry mimosas.
Romantic pink rose bubbly is poured over orange juice and fresh strawberries to create a beautiful twist on the original classic brunch cocktail. A strawberry mimosa is also a great drink choice to enjoy with your significant other on a romantic weekend or Valentine's day.
How to Make a Strawberry Mimosa
Here is a quick guide to making this simple brunch cocktail. Print recipe card below.
What you will Need to make:
- orange juice, some prefer pineapple
- pink sparkling wine
- fresh strawberries
- orange slices
- champagne flutes
First pour the orange juice into each champagne flute.
Add a sliced strawberry in each glass.
Top with pour champagne or pink moscato. Add a couple orange slices as an added garnish if you like.
Serve and enjoy!
Strawberry Puree Option
If you don't have fresh strawberries on hand, you can make this mimosa recipe with a dollop of strawberry puree in it's place. The presentation is not quite as attractive, but the flavor is good. Frozen strawberries can either be dropped in or put in a food processor to create a puree.
Virgin Strawberry Mimosas
Yes, you can easily make alcohol free strawberry mimosas. Simply swap in a non-alcoholic champagne, a mineral water such as Perrier, seltzer or club soda for the bubbly.
I actually make them all the time at my house for my daughter and I, we call it "bubble juice".
Strawberry Mimosas by the Pitcher
While I don't suggest you make strawberry mimosas ahead of time, since we don't want them going flat, you can make a pitcher if you are serving a larger group.
I suggest a 1 to 1 mix of orange juice to champagne. Then add roughly a tablespoon of puree per 4 ounces. Example add a ½ cup (8 tablespoons) into a quart of mimosas (32 ounces). Don't add ice, simply pour into champagne flutes.
