Festive Mimosas

I’m dreaming of a white Christmas,

But if the white runs out I’ll drink the red.

– I Have No Idea

Christmas soirees are absolutely inevitable (tell me I’m lying). Besides presents and decorations, parties and food are the most-loved parts about this season, and understandably so! If you are taking on the challenge of hosting your own party this year then this is for you.

I, with the help of my amazing boyfriend, have conjured up three festive mimosas that look ten times more difficult to make than what they really are. It’s so easy! Perfect during Christmas brunch or as a welcoming drink when guests arrive at your humble abode.

We used Krone Night Nectar, but you can use any bubbles that you prefer. I would recommend that you use 100% fresh fruit juice as that really makes a difference to the taste, and that you don’t skip out on the optional extras.

Now get those bubbles ready!

The Traditional Mimosa

There is nothing better than a good old traditional mimosa! It is perfect for breakfast or brunch, and ridiculously easy to make.

You will need:

  • Champagne/Sparkling Wine of your choice
  • Orange juice
  • Cherries (optional)
  • Sugar (optional)

Method:

  • Wet the rim of champagne flutes by dipping it in water. (optional)
  • Immediately dip the rim in sugar. (optional)
  • Pour your champagne or sparkling wine into three quarters of your champagne flute.
  • Pour the orange juice into the rest of the glass.
  • Top with a few cherries. (optional)

Under the Mistletoe Mimosa

  • Cranberry Juice
  • Frozen Cranberries (optional)
  • Sugar (optional)
  • Rosemary (optional)

Vanilla Candy Cane Mimosa

Festive Vanilla-Candy Cane Mimosa

We took a chance with this mimosa. Adding peppermint just didn’t seem right, but luckily I found the most adorable tiny strawberry candy canes for this. What’s cool is that the bubbles eat at the candy cane and within seconds your mimosa is sweet and tastes like strawberry. Somehow this combination worked.

You will need:

  • Champagne/Sparkling Wine of your choice
  • Cranberry Juice
  • Vanilla Extract
  • Strawberry Candy Canes (optional)
  • Sugar (optional)

Method:

  • Wet the rim of champagne flutes by dipping it in water. (optional)
  • Immediately dip the rim in sugar. (optional)
  • Pour your champagne or sparkling wine into three quarters of your champagne flute.
  • Pour the cranberry juice into the rest of the glass, along with a few drops of vanilla extract.
  • Top with candy canes. (optional)

As you can see, you can easily make any kind of mimosa that your heart desires by just adding different juices to your champagne/sparkling wine. They’re that easy!

Which mimosa would you like to try? What will you be drinking this season?
