As you’ve probably guessed from the ingredient and equipment list, this strawberry orange mimosa is super easy to make. It only takes two steps!
Step 1: Blend the Orange Juice and Strawberries
Add the orange juice and strawberries to your blender and blend until smooth.
Step 2: Make the Strawberry Orange Mimosa
Fill a champagne flute halfway with champagne. Then, pour the orange juice and strawberry mixture into the flute. Garnish with a strawberry and serve.
Hint: Be sure to use pulp-free orange juice so your drink is nice and smooth.
Like any cocktail, you want to serve these as you make them so you don’t have any leftovers. Only make one batch at a time, as these are not good when left for the next day.
This is such a simple recipe, we really only have a couple of tips to remember.
No Pulp – Always get pulp-free orange juice. Even in a blender, you’ll never be able to get a nice, smooth texture if your orange juice has pulp in it.
Make it a Slushie – For backyard bashes in the summer, do something a little different. Freeze the orange juice and strawberry mixture until slushy, and then pour it into your glass with the champagne for an extra cool treat.
