How do I make a limoncello mimosa?
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 the limoncello liqueur. I first time I tried limoncello 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.
Top off each drink with some lemon zest for a beautiful garnish.
What ingredients are in mimosas?
Traditionally, a mimosa is simply champagne with a splash of orange juice. For this recipe, I’ve substituted the champagne for a sparkling Rosé champagne and added limoncello liqueur, fresh raspberries and lemon zest.
Over the top of the raspberries and limoncello, 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.
What juices are good for mimosas?
For a traditional mimosa, you’ll use orange juice. You can also substitute the orange juice with pomegranate juice, lemonade, cranberry juice or grapefruit juice.
What is the best alcohol for mimosas?
Feel free to choose the best champagne, sparkling wine or prosecco for your mimosas. For this recipe I chose a sparkling Rosé champagne, which goes wonderfully with the raspberries and limoncello.
What is a good garnish for a lemon raspberry mimosa?
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 limoncello flavors in the drink.
Enjoy this cocktail right away while cold. I keep my limoncello 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.
When should I serve mimosas?
These delicious Lemon Raspberry Mimosas are the perfect brunch cocktail. The fantastic lemon and raspberry flavors make it perfect as a spring Easter or Mother’s Day brunch drink.
It would also be wonderful as a bridal shower cocktail or enjoying with your girlfriends for cocktail time. Whatever occasion you choose, this drink just might become your new favorite go-to cocktail! Cheers!!
