How to Make a Raspberry Mimosa
A mimosa traditionally contains champagne and orange juice. In this easy champagne cocktail, I’ve replaced the OJ with raspberry and pomegranate for a pretty drink to sip on!
- Freeze cran-raspberry or pomegranate juice into cubes to keep the drink frosty and looks so pretty! (Fun tip: Try heart ice cube trays or check the dollar store for fun trays).
- Add a sugar rim around the top of each glass.
- Add some raspberry liqueur per the recipe below and top with bubbly!
- If you’re short on time or didn’t make ice cubes, add an ounce or so of chilled pomegranate juice in place of the cubes.
- The sugar rim around the top of each glass is pretty and sweetens each sip.
- Use plain sugar, colored sugar, or mix in a few sprinkles for any occasion.
- Check your local dollar store for cute stir sticks, straws, or even champagne flutes.
How to Make This Into Pomegranate Mocktails!
This delicious drink can easily be made into a non alcoholic version (or Mocktail)! Simply substitute the champagne for another sweetened carbonated beverage (such as ginger ale or club soda).
The fun part of this mocktail is the bubbly fizz! So no matter what carbonated beverage you choose, both young and old will find it delightfully delicious.
