One of the greatest sounds in the world is the delightful pop of a cork being released from a champagne bottle. There’s just something about that noise that’s so thrilling. Sparkling wine is often associated with celebrations, and whether you’re opening it to toast a hard-earned degree or simply celebrating a sunny Sunday afternoon, we never turn down a flute filled with the bubbly elixir. While we typically consume the sparkly goodness with some orange juice during our brunch festivities, we love a good twist on the old one-two mimosa. A splash of fresh-squeezed grapefruit juice or a teaspoon of hibiscus syrup will take your mimosa experience to the next level. Thirsty for more ideas? Here are nine easy but inspiring twists on the mimosa.
The next time you want to make an out-of-the-ordinary mimosa, head to the juice aisle of your grocery store and get inspired by what you find there. Virtually any nectar (from guava to pear, as seen in this recipe) or fruit juice (cranberry, pineapple, grape) will work.
