Strawberry Mimosa recipe

Springtime brunch is the best way to emerge from winter hibernation. Whether you grab brunch out on the weekend with a friend or enjoy a smorgasbord at home, it’s all about that breakfast-lunch combo. 

With Easter coming up soon and Mother’s Day right after that, I’m excited to present to you the brunchiest springtime cocktail: strawberry mimosas.

‘Brunchiest’ is a word now because I just used it. You’re welcome. I’ll use it in another sentence, just in case it didn’t make sense the first time: Strawberry mimosas are the pinkest, prettiest, brunchiest cocktail you can make for any spring gathering. Let’s get into how to make them!

Why you’ll love this recipe

You’ll love this delicious brunch drink recipe because…

  • With just two ingredients, they can’t be easier to make!
  • These strawberry mimosas without orange juice are still festive and sweet, but sans OJ! 
  • You can make a delicious strawberry purée in your blender at home.

What is a mimosa?

The mimosa is a cocktail made with orange juice that’s topped with champagne. But if you’re not an OJ lover, the classic mimosa isn’t for you. They are similar to peach bellinis, which are made with prosecco instead of champagne.

Instead, you will love trying them with all kinds of other juices all year round, from pineapple mimosas in the summer to apple cider mimosas in the fall to white cranberry mimosas for Christmas.

Another way to make mimosas is with puréed fruit, which is how we make these bright and colorful strawberry mimosas.

Tools & glassware 

To make these berry mimosas at home, you’ll need a few things:

  • a blender for puréeing the strawberries
  • a fine-mesh strainer for straining out the seeds
  • champagne flutes, for serving

Ingredients

Strawberry mimosas are bright, rosy cocktails full of sweetness and flavor. If you like classic mimosas and strawberries, you’ll love them! Here’s what you need:

Fresh strawberries: Pureed strawberries make for a sweeter version of the brunchtime classic. The sweetness of fresh strawberries married with a dry or semi-dry champagne is a match made in brunch heaven. Frozen strawberries will work too!

You can also use strawberry lemonade in place of the strawberry mixture if you don’t want to take the step of puréeing fresh berries in the blender.

Champagne: For strawberry mimosas, definitely stick to a sparkling wine on the drier side to pair with the sweet berries. Look for words like brut or dry on the label. Cava and prosecco will both work well.

If you want to add some garnishes, you can use fresh strawberries, orange slices or even a sprig of mint. You could even dip the rim of each glass in strawberry sugar.

Best champagne for mimosas

Because mimosas are typically sweet, I suggest a drier champagne or sparkling wine because you will want your bubbly to have a bit of a bite. Prosecco is also great for this.

If you aren’t sure what kind of champagne to buy, you’re in luck because I have a guide for you that explains how to choose a sparkling wine.

Variations & substitutions

Mixed berry mimosas: Make a mixed berry purée with blueberries, raspberries or blackberries. Or make several purées and let your guests build their own berry mimosa with their favorite flavor.

Strawberry lemonade mimosas: Don’t want to make the purée? You can skip this step and use strawberry lemonade instead.

Change the bubbles: Did you know you can make mimosas with beer? You can also make non-alcoholic mimosas with ginger ale, sparkling cider or alcohol-removed champagne.

How to puree strawberries

Making a strawberry puree is easy! It’s just a few simple steps.

  1. First, wash your strawberries and pat them dry with a paper towel. 
  2. Then hull the strawberries to remove the leaves and stems. I use a strawberry huller tool like this, but you can also use a paring knife to cut off the leaves. 
  3. Throw the hulled strawberries into your blender and turn it on medium speed. Blend until they are smooth. Some seeds will remain, but you don’t want any chunks of berries. 
  4. Strain the mixture into a jar with a fine mesh strainer to remove any seeds or lingering chunks. 

Then you’re all set to use strawberry puree to make mimosas! Pour a little into each glass, then top with champagne.

How to make Strawberry Mimosas

Making these cocktails is as easy as 1, 2, 3! Here’s what to do:

  1. In a blender, puree strawberries until smooth. Strain out the seeds if you don’t want that texture.
  2. Spoon 1-2 tablespoons of the strawberry puree into the bottom of a champagne glass. (You can eyeball it and just pour a little into each glass if you want!)
  3. Top with your favorite bubbly and serve immediately.

When to serve strawberry mimosas

Strawberry Mimosas are a perfect choice for wedding shower menus, girlfriend brunches at home and crafternoons with your mom.

It’s also a really different drink for celebrating Easter brunch, Mother’s Day breakfast or even a Valentine’s Day date night. Classic is nice, but switching things up is way more fun if you ask me!

A mimosa bar is always fun at a party, so try serving these strawberry pretties alongside classic mimosas, guava mimosas, coconut mimosas and blood orange mimosas for a rainbow of colorful cocktails!

What to serve with strawberry mimosas

Strawberry mimosas go with all your favorite brunch treats. Enjoy them with berry treats like blueberry crumble muffins and strawberry rolls or go fruitier with lemon poppyseed scones.

You should also make a ton of chocolate-covered strawberries — you can never have too many of those.

These mimosas could also be part of a big mimosa bar at a party. Serve other juices and purées for your guests to DIY their perfect mimosa.

More strawberry drinks

Now that strawberries are in season again, all the strawberry cocktails should be on your radar this spring!

I can’t wait to make more strawberry drinks like these strawberry basil margaritas and these strawberry mint juleps, and treats like these prosecco popsicles.

Guess I need to go strawberry picking soon! (Followed by brunch, of course.)
