Strawberry mimosas are the perfect brunch cocktail to ring in spring. With fresh squeezed orange juice and a layer of strawberry puree, these fruity champagne drinks are just what you need to make brunch feel extra special.
- Brut Champagne chilled
- 8-10 medium-sized oranges
- 1 lb strawberries
- Sugar optional
- Orange Slices
Cut oranges in half and press over an orange juicer. Remove seeds, if any. If you do not like pulp in your orange juice, pour over a fine mesh strainer with a large bowl underneath. Set juice aside
Wash and dry strawberries. Cut the tops off and hull the insides. Chop in half and place in a food processor or blender. Add sugar if desired, for extra sweetness. Begin by pulsing the strawberries, and then blend on low speed, moving to high speed until the strawberries are blended into a puree, stopping and scraping down the sides as needed.
Evenly divide the puree into 4 champagne flutes. Add champagne to the halfway point in the glass. Top with fresh squeezed orange juice.
Top with sliced strawberries on the rim of each glass. Add mint leaves or orange slices, as desired. Enjoy!
Please note that the champagne listed in the ingredients can be substituted for a non alcoholic Champagne.
You could also substitute with Martinelli’s Sparkling Cider.
