Mother’s Day is a holiday dedicated to the woman who does so much for her family each and every day. She makes it her mission to keep everyone happy and healthy, cooks delicious homemade meals and is the best healer of boo-boos. Plus, with everything going on with the current situation, she could use a little extra pampering this year. And what better way to do that than by serving up a tasty mimosa drink recipe that she will absolutely love?
In this blog, we’ll reveal 4 refreshing mimosa ideas. As you’re reading, keep in mind what flavors your mom likes best to help choose which one to make. Then, add the ingredients you need to your grocery shopping list for your next trip to Food Lion where you can enjoy low prices on your mimosa essentials, including a wide selection of sparkling wine, champagne, juice and more.
1) Classic Mimosa with a Twist
This first mimosa drink recipe is a slight twist on the traditional mimosa. So, if Mom loves the flavor of the classic drink, give this recipe idea a try. You’ll need champagne, orange juice and peach juice. That’s it; only 3 ingredients total!
With this mimosa, instead of a full splash of orange juice, add half peach and half orange juice. Then, to make it a little extra special, cut some fresh orange slices into 1-inch pieces and place one on the rim of each glass.
2) Grapefruit Rosé Mimosa
This mimosa drink recipe is refreshing and summery with a flavor combination of citrus and fresh herbs. That makes it perfect if you’re planning on spending time outdoors, either on the back patio or while picnicking in the backyard. Here’s what you’ll need to add to your grocery list for your next trip to Food Lion:
- Grapefruit juice
- Fresh rosemary
- Fresh grapefruit (cut into small wedges, for garnish; optional)
- Sparkling rosé
- Agave nectar
To infuse the fresh rosemary taste into the drink, place sprigs of rosemary in a pitcher or tall glass and add the grapefruit juice. Let the juice and rosemary sit in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 hours.
Now it’s time to mix together the Grapefruit Rosé Mimosas. Fill the glass about halfway with sparkling rosé, then stir in ½ teaspoon of agave nectar (for added sweetness) and top off the champagne glass with the rosemary-infused grapefruit juice. Feel free to add a sprig of rosemary to the glass for garnish, as well as a small wedge of fresh-cut grapefruit.
3) Strawberry Pineapple Mimosa
Prosecco, orange juice, pineapple juice and strawberries are all you’ll need for this mimosa drink recipe! Just like the Grapefruit Rosé Mimosa, this drink requires some infusing to get the full strawberry flavor.
So, start by slicing some fresh strawberries. Frozen will work too; just make sure to let them thaw for easy slicing. Then, add your berry slices to the pineapple juice and let sit in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 hours.
Next, it’s time to craft this cocktail. Pour the prosecco until the glass is about halfway full. Add equal parts orange juice and the strawberry-infused pineapple juice. And finally, place a strawberry on the rim for a colorful garnish or use leftover frozen strawberries as ice cubes in the mimosa.
4) Crisp Apple Mimosa
Although apples are reminiscent of fall, they are enjoyed all year, so why not try a Crisp Apple Mimosa, too? To make this mimosa drink recipe, here’s what you’ll need:
- Apple juice
- Ground cinnamon
- Agave nectar
- Fresh apple (cut into slices for garnish; optional)
Now, let’s get mixing! First, fill the glass halfway with champagne. Add a pinch of cinnamon and ½ teaspoon of agave nectar (for a little extra sweetness). Finally, top off the glass with Mom’s favorite apple juice and place a slice of fresh-cut apple on the rim. That’s all there is to it!
Which mimosa drink recipe sounds like the perfect one to treat Mom this holiday? Can’t decide? Save this blog for later and refer back to it for her birthday or any other special occasion. Happy Mother’s Day to all of the loving moms who do so much for their families. Cheers to you!
