Sweet Strawberry Mimosas

Looking to give your celebration drink a bright and spring-filled twist? Make your mimosa a sweet strawberry mimosa with a little bit of pineapple and brighten up your morning!

Happy Valentine’s Day, friends! Here’s hoping you’ve had a wonderful start to your morning and that you’re having fun celebrating the love you have for someone special, your best friends, or just yourself – because you’re worthy of all that love, too!

And all that love deserves a special toast, right? What better way to start the day than with a toast of something bright and bubbly?

Enter the Mimosa. But not just any mimosa. This one has a sweet and tangy dose of strawberry, orange, and a little bit of pineapple!

This is almost sinfully simple. Throw some fresh strawberries and pineapple into your blender and puree them until they’re nice and smooth. Mix in the orange juice and puree again. Pour into champagne flutes and top with bubbly. Done!

Of course, these are even more fun with a little garnish. Let the fruit soak up in the sweetness of the champagne for an extra treat.

I like to choose a more dry sparkling wine than a sweet one for my mimosas. You can use champagne, but Prosecco is also great in a mimosa. And if you’re looking to leave out the alcohol, make the juice and top it up with a little club soda for some bright fizz.
