How to Make a Pomegranate Mimosa
Fill a glass half way with champagne. Add a splash of Orange liqueur. Top off with pomegranate juice. Garnish with pomegranate & a rosemary sprig. Cheers!
- Use fresh pomegranate juice for the best flavor and vibrant color.
- Chill ingredients before making mimosas for the perfectly chilled beverage.
- Adjust sweetness to your liking by adding a bit more juice or champagne.
- Serve immediately after preparation for freshness and don’t stir to avoid going flat.
Making Mimosas for a Crowd
To make a large batch of mimosas, fill a pitcher half way up with champagne, then add a splash of Orange liqueur and top off with pomegranate juice. Serve immediately for fizz and freshness.
No, you can’t make this ahead of time due to the bubbles from the champagne. If you did make it ahead of time it would be flat by the time of serving so we suggest making the drink on demand.
The number will depend on the size of the serving glass you use. As a general guideline, one bottle of champagne or sparkling wine (750ml) should make approximately 6-8 standard-sized servings.
Of course! Feel free to substitute regular champagne with non-alcoholic sparkling wine. You’ll still achieve that bubbly texture without the alcohol content.
