Classic mimosas — a mix of champagne and orange juice — have always been a brunch staple. But just because it’s a classic doesn’t mean it can’t be improved. If you’re looking to spice up the traditional mimosa, look no further. Here are 10 twists on the classic drink that will have you seeing mimosas in a totally new light. These are totally not your mum’s mimosa.
1. Mango Mimosa
Keep your mimosa as simple as the classic but switch up the flavours by using fresh mangoes and mango juice instead. This will add a nice sweetness and a tropical flavour to the classic mimosa.
This is a great sweet yet fruity mimosa recipe that would be perfect for any brunch or gathering. The flavours of peach and berries are a match made in heaven and will have you feeling extra festive!
Release your inner child by sipping on this nostalgic cocktail. This recipe is simply your classic mimosa recipe with some milk and vanilla ice cream added, to make it taste exactly like an adult creamsicle.
Feeling fancy? This one’s for you. You’ll still get an amazing flavour (and a bit of a health kick) by replacing half your orange juice with orange Kombucha. The addition of pomegranate not only makes this drink beautiful, it also makes it extra tart. This is definitely not your mum’s mimosa.
Fresh herbs are a great way to update the classic mimosa. Simply swap out orange juice for grapefruit juice and add in some swigs of rosemary for an earthy, fragrant twist.
While blackberry and mint is a combination that goes great in mojitos, did you know it can work just as well in mimosas? Use this recipe if you want a super refreshing brunch cocktail that just screams summer.
Make your mimosa double as dessert by opting for this super sweet recipe. The addition of vanilla vodka, strawberry ice cream and crushed wafers will make you forget about your favourite ice cream sundae.
Here’s another recipe that shows just how well fresh herbs work in cocktails! Balance out the sweetness of pears by infusing your mimosas with thyme. This is a drink that feels grown up but is definitely not your mum’s mimosa.
By simply adding watermelon juice and fresh watermelon chunks to a classic mimosa, you can turn it from boring to fun and refreshing in just a few minutes. Definitely give this cocktail a try at your next summer barbecue.
If you’re looking for some unconventional flavours, try infusing some wild hibiscus syrup into your mimosa. Not only that, but replace champagne for rosé to add a gorgeous pink colour to your drink!
