What is a Mimosa?
Mimosa is a simple cocktail that consists of champagne and citrus juice (usually orange juice). This classic cocktail is great for brunch, but it also works well as a welcome drink at a party or bridal shower.
Is a Mimosa the Same as a Bellini?
A bellini is made from peach purée and prosecco. It could be called a mimosa or a bellini, depending on the variation of the fruit juice. You won’t really notice if it has prosecco, champagne, or any other sparkling wine.
However, a bellini has thicker fruit purees, like strawberry bellini, while mimosas are lighter.
What’s in a Pineapple Mimosa?
This may seem silly since it sounds like you’d assume it’s just champagne and pineapple juice.
However, a little bit of triple sec makes all the difference. It lifts the flavor a little with a bit more sweetness and citrus.
This pineapple mimosa, which is easy to make, is light and bright. It is a tropical take on the classic brunch drink. But you can drink it anytime!
