We all know about mimosas. They are basically just champagne and juice. We just made a Strawberry Mimosa, or White Grapefruit Mimosa, too!


But, what about if we want to change up the traditional orange juice and champagne combo? That is when we introduce this Lilac Mimosa.

This recipe tastes and looks elegant, but it is super simple!

Lilac Simple Syrup

We loved making this fresh lilac simple syrup this spring. We foraged for these lilac blossoms, and the smell was intoxicating. It made for a great simple syrup, as well as a lilac liqueur. This floral scent and flavor is lovely and really pairs well with a good sparkling wine.

Lilac Mimosa Recipe

Obviously Mimosas are easy to make. And this isn’t any different. We added the lilac simple syrup to a glass, along with some lemon juice. The lemon juice is essential for eliminating some of the sweetness from the syrup. But, it also has a fun effect with the lilac syrup in that the acid causes it to change color a bit! So, a drink and a show!

Then, top the syrup and lemon juice off with champagne, and you have a perfect brunch cocktail! Try our Thanksgiving Champagne Cocktail, too!

Best Champagne for Mimosas

A mimosa typically uses dry champagne such as a Brut. Feel free to also use Cava, another dry sparkling wine. A mid-range priced bottle totally work for this recipe. You want the lilac flavor to stand out, don’t wait expensive champagne on this one.

  • Cava
  • Brut Champagne
  • Dry Prosecco (will be sweeter)

Mimosas for a Crowd

This recipe would be beautiful in a large pitcher for a crowd! To make a big batch, simply prepare the lemon juice first and add the lilac simple syrup. We would advise that you multiply by at least 8 for a group. Wait to pour the champagne until you are ready to serve. For a pretty presentation, throw a few sprigs of fresh lilac, fresh lemon slices and mint inside the pitcher, or per glass when serving.

If you’re looking for a simple glass garnish, the lilac springs float on top, too.

Tips and Tricks

  • Boozier Mimosa – If you want a boost of alcohol and not lose the lilac flavor, add a bit of our homemade lilac liqueur.
  • Prosecco – If you use Prosecco, we advise a drier one, as well as maybe less lilac simple syrup, or it will be too sweet.
  • Chill – Make sure all your ingredients are chilled before hand and it will make for a better cocktail.
