How to Make a Strawberry Mimosa
This strawberry mimosa is so easy to make, just simply pour all the ingredients in a coupe or flute!
- Prep the Strawberry Simple Syrup – Easy enough, can be made with either fresh or frozen strawberries.
- Pour ingredients in Glass – Add lemon juice and strawberry simple syrup in first, then top with champagne.
- Champagne – if you add it in first it can contain the mess (no fizz over), but usually we top whatever else with the bubbles!
- Garnish with a Strawberry – a whole strawberry or a sliced strawberry are a great option
Champagne Choices for a Strawberry Mimosa
A cheap to mid range price Brut champagne is your best option and is a classic choice for a mimosa. You can also use a dry Prosecco or cava as another option. We recommend a brut champagne for this recipe!
Whatever sparkling wine you buy, make sure it’s a brut, which means dry.
- Champagne – most expensive option (French). Has flavors of almond and citrus, is bubbly and fruity.
- Prosecco – Italian sparkling wine. Can be little sweeter than champagne: fruity and flowery, notes of apple, pear and lemon.
- Cava – Spanish sparkling wine. A little more savory flavor and less fruity.
How to make Mimosas in a Pitcher
Have a large crowd to feed at brunch? Try making mimosas in a pitcher, it can be easy, but it can also be easy just to serve individually, too. Just go with what works for you.
- Prepare – prep the Strawberry Simple Syrup, chill and then pour into the pitcher
- Chilling – Make sure champagne and lemon juice are chilled before serving
- Serving – When ready to serve: Pour all ingredients into pitcher and then stir. Pour into glasses, garnish.
- The easiest way to do it may be to have the lemon juice and strawberry simple syrup already mixed together in a small carafe or pitcher and then add desired amount (.75 ounces) and then top with champagne.
Can you Make Non-Alcoholic Mimosas?
Yes! Just replace the champagne with either some sparkling grape juice, non-alcoholic sparkling wine, or flavored sparkling water to make a virgin mimosa.
Can I make these Strawberry Mimosas Ahead of Time?
Honestly, no. Mimosas are really best served freshly poured. They really only take a few minutes to make, so they don’t need to be made ahead of time.
Tips & Tricks
- Champagne – Brut Champagne is the best option for this. Since the rest of the ingredients are sweet, the dry sparkling wine balances this out. But, pick your favorite to use.
- Garnish – fresh strawberries or a sprig of mint on the rim of each glass will give these mimosas an elegant look.
- Juice – If you would like, you can do some orange juice for some more authentic “mimosa” feel – about 1 ounce of orange juice. Or, if you want a tropical twist, try pineapple juice!
- Simple Syrup – instead of strawberry, try making another berry like blueberry, blackberry or raspberry syrup!
