Frozen mimosas? Yes, please!
The only thing better than the simply magical combo of OJ + bubbles is its more amazing frozen twin!
Think naturally sweetened with no sugar added.
Think pregaming with a frozen version of everyone’s brunchtime fave, an easy batch cocktail for blending and pouring for a few friends.
How we made frozen mimosas for 4
With two-inch square ice cube trays and a Vitamix, Melissa made a batch while hosting friends in New Orleans. You can freeze just the fresh-squeezed orange juice to blend with chilled Champagne or go ahead and mix and freeze for best results.
“It’s a mimosa on steroids,” said Taylor, after tasting the batch we blended for sipping while getting dressed for Saturday brunch at La Petite Grocery.
After a three-day girls’ weekend hitting up many of the city’s most revered cocktail lounges, Diédre, also on the trip, gave the homemade frozen mimosa a Top 3 rating of all cocktails tasted!
Pro tips and tricks:
The flavor outcome of your fabulous frozen mimosas will depend on the sweetness of the oranges and the sparkling wine. Choose “juicing” oranges such as Valencia, navel oranges or even blood oranges, when in season.
For the bubbles, simply pick a brut Cava, Prosecco or Champagne you would serve in your mimosas at home or what’s already chilling.
Prepare poolside or blend a quick batch anytime you need to bring the brunch vibes.
Easy peezy, orange squeezy!
