This Pineapple Strawberry Mimosa is crisp and refreshing and perfect for brunch! It’s a stand-by classic with a sweet, fun twist.
I love a delicious Mimosa at brunch, especially one with macerated strawberries and pineapple juice. It’s the perfect drink to serve for brunch alongside Strawberry French Toast Bake, Cinnamon French Toast Casserole and some Hash Brown Waffles.
It’s acceptable to order an alcoholic beverage in the morning as long as it’s got juice in it right?! At least that’s what I tell myself. There’s nothing like having brunch and sipping on a delicious champagne cocktail. Brunch and mimosas just seem to go together so well!
I absolutely love a perfect orange juice and champagne combo but there’s definitely something to be said for twisting it up a bit. Like this Pineapple and Strawberry Mimosa! All the best flavors with your favorite bubbly, now that’s perfection!
You just need a few ingredients to make this refreshing cocktail, so of course, quality ingredients matter.
Pineapple Juice – For a high quality brand, Lakewood Pure Pineapple Juice tops the list. Pure pressed juice, not from concentrate. Concentrates and blends tend to contain more sugar.
Strawberries – fresh berries from a local stand are going to be the best of the best. If you don’t have a stand new you, grocery store berries would be the next choice. If it’s not strawberry season, you can try frozen strawberries, just let them thaw first.
What champagne is best for a Mimosa?
Choosing your champagne is up to you as well and there are so many different kinds to choose from. You can go the sparkling wine route such as Prosecco or stick with a Dry Brut Champagne even a sweet Spumanti would be great. Pick whichever you would prefer to drink by itself. No wrong choices here!
How to make a Pineapple Strawberry Mimosa
The strength of your mimosa is completely personal. Some like half and half, others like more juice than champagne and some like just a small amount of juice. I’m more of the last option kinda gal. I like to taste the champagne and not over power and it with juice. So in my recipe I did not put measurements so you can make each drink specifically for the person drinking it.
- Muddle the strawberries: Drop a couple of small strawberries in the champagne flute (remove the stems first). Press the fruit against the side of the glass using a muddler or just the back of a spoon. If you don’t like chunks in your drink then I suggest pureeing the strawberries in a blender or food processor and straining out the seeds. It’ll take a bit longer but it would be worth it for the fresh strawberry taste.
- Add champagne: Next add your desired amount of champagne to the glass, as little or as much as you like.
- Add juice: Top off your Mimosa with pineapple juice and garnish with a small slice of pineapple or a fresh strawberry.
Can you make mimosas ahead of time?
You can, but I recommend not making them more than an hour ahead of you will lose some of the carbonation from the champagne.
