Every brunch needs a mimosa to fit the occasion. This Summer, serve up this easy cocktail to all your mango-loving friends. Mimosas couldn't be easier to make, but to ensure you are making mimosas correctly, check out my Guide to Making Marvelous Mimosas!
For additional tropical and fruity flavors, pair mango mimosas with this fun peach salsa appetizer.
- Champagne: Mango nectar is sweeter than orange juice. When selecting a Champagne to balance out the mango nectar, go for a dry Champagne that isn't so sweet.
- Mango Nectar: Mango nectar is available in most grocery stores. Alternatively, mango juice can also be used.
- Tajin and Rosemary: A pinch of Tajin Seasoning can be added for an extra element of flavor. It is a unique blend of chili peppers, lime & sea salt. Add a rosemary twig as a fun garnish that adds a hint of earthy flavor.
See recipe card for quantities.
Allow the Champagne and mango nectar to chill in the refrigerator. Do not pour your mimosas until right before consuming, since this beverage is best enjoyed chilled.
When ready to assemble, fill the champagne glass a third of the way with mango nectar. Then continue to fill the glass with Champagne, leaving room at the top for bubbling and movement to avoid spilling. Traditionally, classic mimosas consist of half juice and half Champagne, but since mango nectar is so sweet, it can be overpowering.
Garnish with a pinch of Tajin seasoning and a rosemary twig if desired. Your mango mimosa is ready to enjoy!
For a Crowd
Prep the area you will be placing the mimosa pitcher with clean glasses and garnishes. Right when guests start to arrive, get the pitcher of mimosas ready by pouring about 1 ½ - 2 cups of mango nectar in the pitcher, followed by a bottle of Champagne (1.5L). Do not mix, and it's ready to serve!
