You only need two ingredients to craft these delicious mango mimosas. They are a flavorful and bubbly cocktail perfect for brunch or any celebration.
Several weeks ago I shared my homemade mango sorbet recipe. (You can find that HERE.) At that time, I promised to share a few cocktail recipes using the sorbet in future posts. Today we’re wrapping up this mango-inspired series with a mango mimosa.
In case you missed the previous mango sorbet-based cocktail recipes, you can find those here:
Of all the mango cocktails, this one is the easiest. It’s basically just Champagne poured over sorbet. That’s it. If you’re tight on time or just want something easy that still feels special and celebratory, this mango mimosa is for you!
Here’s what you’ll need.
Champagne: Champagne is a sparkling wine from the Champagne region of France. It comes in a variety of sweetness from dry to sweet. I prefer and recommend one on the dry side especially since the mango sorbet will add a bit of sweetness. Traditionally, a mimosa is made with Champagne, but if you prefer, feel free to use prosecco, Moscato, or any other sparkling white wine.
How to Make:
I suppose this recipe is pretty self-explanatory. Even so, I have provided a detailed ingredients list and instructions in the printable recipe card below.
- Add the mango sorbet to a Champagne or coupe glass.
- Top with Champagne.
Yep, that’s it! You’re ready to enjoy! I told you it was easy!
I dressed mine up by using THESE fancy Champagne glasses. They are my favorite!
Frequently Asked Questions:
Below are some of the most frequently asked questions when it comes to making these mango mimosas.
What’s the difference between a mimosa and a Bellini?
A Bellini is made of pureed peaches and prosecco while a mimosa is made with chilled citrus juice (traditionally) and Champagne.
Looking for some Bellini recipes? You’ve come to the right place.
What are some good variations to this recipe?
One of my favorite things about cocktail mixing is that you can always add your own twist. Here are a few variations you can try with this recipe:
- Use other sorbets. I love mango, but you can use any flavored sorbet you like. In fact, you can even create a ‘mimosa bar’ and offer a variety of sorbets and sparkling wines.
- Try a different sparkling wine: While Champagne is traditional, you can use prosecco, Moscato, or another sparkling wine of your choice.
- Make it a mocktail. Instead of Champagne, use sparkling grape juice. This way everyone can join in the celebration. Kids included!
Next time you’re hosting breakfast, brunch, or any celebration, I hope you’ll give these Mango Mimosas a try. Enjoy!
