The Ultimate Mimosa Bar
Most people might assume that there needs to be a special occasion in order to have a fancy brunch for a mimosa bar. We are here to tell you that you don’t. Mimosa Mondays, just because, can be a thing. Let's normalize this fun bubbly spread for any occasion.
So, whether this is for a special event or simply just for you (no judgement here), let us provide you steps on how to set up the perfect mimosa bar.
What You Need:
Various fruit juices
Champagne on ice
One of the best things about a mimosa bar is that guests can serve themselves and choose what they want to mix with their mimosa. That being said, the different flavors of juice and/or puree that you choose is what really makes it unique.
Offer a variety of juices. Of course, a lot of the traditional juices and purees used in mimosas are orange juice, cranberry juice, strawberry puree, watermelon puree…there is no limit to what you can and can't use.
Blood orange juice
Never made a juice puree before? It’s so easy and honestly, makes for the BEST tasting mimosas!
How To Make A Fruit Puree:
Take 2 cups of fresh fruit
Add 1 cup of simple syrup
Strain to remove any seeds or unnecessary pulp
Chill before serving
How Much Bubbly Do I Need? This question comes up a lot. Let us first say… there is never too much Bubbly. However, a 750 ml bottle of champagne contains 25 ounces of bubbly, which is roughly 6 glasses of champagne, given that each traditional champagne flute holds 4 ounces of champagne. So how many bottles? Depends on who you’re drinking with :)
Garnishes? Garnishes add all the fun, so we highly recommend leaving some berries or herbs out for guests to drop in their drink.
What is the Best Bubbly to Use? Contrary to belief, the best mimosas aren't even made with actual Champagne. For the best tasting mimosa that doesn't break the bank, we would suggest a dry sparkling wine, like Cava or Prosecco.
Here are three of my personal favorite mimosa recipes!
Cheers to you bubbly lovers!
