Do you love a good brunch cocktail? We don’t brunch out very often, but when we do, I’m always inclined to order myself a delicious Mimosa, Tequila Sunrise, or Salty Dog. I think it’s rather funny that drinking in the morning is socially unacceptable, unless it accompanies breakfast food on the weekend. In this instance it is not only acceptable, but almost makes brunch even more amazing and fabulous.

Because I’m more inclined to make my family a yummy Saturday or Sunday morning brunch at home, I’ve begun keeping all of the ingredients on hand to make these delicious Lemon Raspberry Mimosas. They’re super-simple to make, and just need 4 ingredients, turning your Sunday morning breakfast into a posh brunch!

Here’s how to make these delicious Lemon Raspberry Mimosas:

I do love a fresh, citrus-y Mimosa but I wanted to change it up a bit to include berries and my favorite Italian lemon liqueur, lemoncello. I also wanted to re-create this brunch cocktail using Sparkling Rosé instead of the standard Champagne. Rosé is making an amazing resurgence, as many wineries are creating some incredible blends with this wine. The beautiful pink color also goes perfectly in this amazing brunch drink!

Step 1: Add Lemoncello Liqueur to Fresh Raspberries

Start by adding some fresh raspberries to Champagne flutes. If you don’t have access to fresh raspberries you can always use frozen, however fresh look especially amazing in this drink.  Strawberries would also be a wonderful substitution in this drink. Much like my Strawberry Tequila Sunrise, these fresh berries make for a fantastic brunch cocktail.

Over the top of the raspberries, add approximately a 1/2 oz. (half shot) of lemoncello liqueur. I first tried lemoncello when I was in Italy, where it is a very common spirit, especially enjoyed as an aperitif. It adds amazing fresh, lemon essence to this champagne cocktail, and a bit of a kick as well. Paired with the fresh raspberries, and the sweet Rosé, it takes this cocktail from good to amazing!

Step 2: Fill the glass with Sparkling Rosé

Over the top of the raspberries and lemoncello, you’ll then fill the champagne flutes with a sparkling Rosé champagne. I used Korbel Sweet Rosé, which is blended from both red and white grapes. If you would prefer a standard Champagne or sparkling wine, feel free to use that instead. I do love the beautiful pink color of this Rosé, as it pairs wonderfully with the sweet, tart raspberries.

Step 3: Garnish Glasses with Fresh Lemon Zest

Adding strips of fresh, lemony lemon zest to the tops of these cocktails is a gorgeous way to top off this Champagne cocktail. The bright yellow over the top of the red raspberries is a gorgeous pairing for this drink. It also compliments the lemoncello flavors in the drink.

Enjoy this cocktail right away while cold. I keep my lemoncello in the freezer to keep it chilled until ready to pour. Also be sure to chill your Rosé and raspberries in the refrigerator right up until you are ready to make the drinks. This will help ensure the drinks are icy cold and perfect for sipping right away for brunch.
