The essentials for the perfect mimosa

Aug 30, 2018, Author: Candice May

Hello Joburgers, we thought we couldn’t send you off into another weekend without a classic recipe to add to your brunch spread. And a special bubbly one at that – the mimosa.

There are many variations of this classic brunch cocktail – from tequila sunrise mimosas to mimosa sangria – but in our opinion, nothing beats the original two-ingredient recipe. Here’s how to make a killer mimosa that’s sure to go down well with a spread of eggs benedict, French toast and breakfast sausage.

Ingredients:

60ml orange juice

120ml brut champagne

Method:

Fill a champagne flute one-third full of freshly squeezed orange juice.
Top up with brut champagne.

It’s as simple as that!

Tips:

We’re not saying that simple is a bad thing, but if you want to give your exceedingly simple mimosas a little complexity, add a teaspoon or so of Grand Marnier. Orange bitters works well, too.

If you’re looking for something with a slightly more tropical flavour, try the ‘blushing’ mimosa with two parts orange juice and one part pineapple juice. Fill a champagne flute two-thirds full of the juice mixture, top with champagne and then add two tablespoons of grenadine.
