There are lots of ways to add in other flavors to these pineapple mimosas. Here are some ideas:
- Strawberry Pineapple Mimosa: For a fruity twist, add in 1 to 2 tablespoons of homemade strawberry simple syrup.
- Coconut Malibu Pineapple Mimosa: Make this pineapple mimosa with ½ oz malibu rum. Then, top off the mimosa with 1 to 2 tablespoons of coconut milk.
- Pineapple Orange Mimosa: Replace half of the pineapple juice with freshly squeezed orange juice.
- Pour the champagne first. Add the champagne to the glass before the pineapple juice. This allows the cocktail to mix on its own and prevents it from bubbling over.
- Tip the glass as you pour the champagne. This helps stop the champagne from fizzing up and helps keep the champagne extra bubbly.
- Serve the mimosas immediately. Mimosas are best served as soon as they are poured. The longer they sit, the flatter they will get.
- Add garnish. If you are serving this cocktail at a party, add mini pineapple slices as garnish.
Technically a mimosa is made with champagne. However champagne is much more expensive than other, comparable options such as prosecco, cava or even sparkling wine.
If you don't have a juicer, you can blend fresh pineapple in a blender until smooth. Then, pass the mixture through a fine mesh sieve to remove the pineapple chunks.
