Calling all my champagne lovers! This blush drink has stolen my heart. Mimosas made with rosé champagne and grapefruit juice are so delicious and result in a stunning pink hue. Perfect for all types of brunches, you need to get your hands on this rosé grapefruit mimosa recipe. Cheers!
Mimosas are the simplest mixed drinks and they are great for any occasion. Mix champagne and juice (usually orange juice) and you have yourself a mimosa! But what makes mimosas so great are the flavor combos are virtually endless.
What sparked my idea for this grapefruit mimosa recipe was a celebratory one.
My amazing friends bought me this bottle of rosé after making the top 100 plant-based blogs list! This is a huge accomplishment for me because I’ve built this baby from the ground up and I love that I’m making an impact in the plant-based community! So what better way to use this rosé than make a recipe for my blog?!
Okay, back to mimosas, because that’s why you’re here right?
How to make rose mimosas:
A traditional mimosa is 1 part orange juice and 1 part dry champagne. But we’re not traditionalists here! Instead of OJ, I used grapefruit juice and instead of dry champagne I used Rosé because I love the pink color (and flavor) it adds to a mimosa.
Tip: Rosé tends to be on the sweeter side, so if you buy grapefruit juice, I would recommend watering it down slightly to balance the sugar a bit! Store bought grapefruit juice usually contains a lot of sugar.
For this recipe, I found this grapefruit juice “aqua fresca” which is already less sweetened! I highly recommend because it is so delicious!
Tips for making a perfect mimosa:
- Make sure both your juice and champagne are chilled
- Pour the champagne in the flute at a slight angle (as shown above) to reduce the amount of foam
- Add champagne first, then top with juice
- Try freshly squeezed juice instead of store-bought if you have the time!
Here are some great ideas on how to customize your mimosa:
- Use pineapple juice or guava juice
- Use peach nectar (bellini)
- Use Brut champagne or another dry champagne instead of rosé
- Garnish with fresh fruit such as orange slices or strawberries
This mimosa recipe is perfect for Easter or Mother’s Day brunch, Baby showers, Wedding showers, or just a fun girl’s brunch. Rosé grapefruit mimosas are a delicious spin on this traditional cocktail!
I recommend pairing with some lemon scones for the ultimate brunch of champions.
Tip: Try making this recipe in big batches and keeping chilled so you can keep the mimosas coming!
