Our Strawberry Mimosa is a twist on the traditional mimosa recipe. Fresh strawberries are blended with orange juice then paired with champagne for a fun, fruity drink.
Cocktails and fun drinks are one of our most favorite things to make in regards to recipes. The flavors are so easy to mix and match, so the possibilities are endless.
Mimosas are one of those drinks that are really versatile, easy to make, and great to serve at potlucks, showers, or brunches. We already have an apple cider mimosa for Fall and a pomegranate mimosa for late Fall and Winter.
We thought this strawberry mimosa recipe would be a great addition for Spring. It's a play on the traditional orange mimosas with a touch of fresh strawberry juice and rosé champagne.
How to make a Strawberry Mimosa:
Scroll to the recipe card below for full instructions and ingredient amounts!
- Start by cutting the green stems off the strawberries and removing the white portions underneath the stems. In other words, hull the berries. This will remove the bitter flavor from the strawberry juice.
- Add the berries to a blender along with the orange juice.
- Blend until the strawberries are broken down and well combined with the orange juice.
- Place a mesh sieve over a jar, measuring cup, or large container, and pour the juice through the sieve.
- Allow the juice to drain through the sieve or use a spoon or spatula to press it through. There will be some thick pulp leftover. I usually discard it, but feel free to say it for another use if you like.
- Divide the juice evenly among 8 glasses.
- Tilt a glass slightly and carefully pour the champagne to top off the glass. Repeat with the remaining glasses.
- I was able to get 8 mimosas out of the strawberry orange juice and champagne. That may vary depending on how much pulp is removed from the fruit and how full you fill the glasses.
What’s the best alcohol for a strawberry mimosa?
Try using a Brut, Cava, Prosecco, or other sparkling wine. For this recipe, I chose a rosé to pair with the strawberry flavor.
Do you have to strain out the pulp from the juice?
No, you don’t have to strain out the pulp. That’s a matter of preference. However, leaving the pulp in will make the mimosa slightly thick.
Do you have to use orange juice in a strawberry mimosa?
No, you can puree the strawberries and use only the puree and champagne. Here’s a Strawberry Mimosas Cocktail Recipe that requires only two ingredients and no orange juice.
