Mandarin Mimosa Cocktails
We’ve partnered with Mongibello Juice to bring you this delicious Mandarin Mimosa recipe. If you’re looking for new brunch ideas, this citrusy cocktail is perfect. For a refreshing treat, make a pitcher and sip it poolside. The recipe is simple, with a twist on the classic mimosa. It’ll keep you running back for refills!
Mongibello’s juice, made from 100% fresh squeezed Italian mandarins, pairs perfectly with a dry Sparkling Wine. We used Antica Terra Millesimato*, a handcrafted Sparkling Italian wine from our Cellar Collection.
Recipe makes about 6 mimosas.
- 1 bottle dry Sparkling Wine
- 1 carton Mongibello 100% Mandarin Juice
- Chilled flutes
The key to making the perfect and refreshing mimosa is to make sure all ingredients are chilled (including your flutes). We recommend chilling your glasses in the freezer for 15 minutes before making your mimosas. This will give your drink a crisp finish!
Fill your chilled flute halfway with a dry Sparkling Wine (we recommend Cava or Prosecco).
Next, top off your glass with Mongibello’s Mandarin Juice. Using a fresh squeezed juice, similar to this one, gives your mimosa a lighter and more delicate flavor.
Mandarin Mimosa Tasting Notes
Serving tip: Make your mimosas one by one if you can (instead of pre-mixing in a pitcher). This maintains the carbonation for a fresh, bubbly drink.
In this recipe, we used Antica Terra Millesimato*, a Cellar Collection Sparkling Wine.
Wine tasting notes: A Sparkling Wine that is robust in its body and made from a crisp champagne grape blend. This wine is generous and well-structured on the palate.
