This pineapple mimosa is made with fresh pineapple juice and Champagne. It is the perfect brunch cocktail or refreshing drink after a long day. It is super easy to make in under five minutes but also looks incredibly fancy.
Classic mimosas are always going to be a hit, but sometimes it is nice to try a variation on the orange juice and champagne cocktail. One of my favorite versions is this pineapple mimosa. Pineapples make this cocktail feel especially tropical, even in winter time.
How to make a pineapple mimosa:
This cocktail is incredibly fast to pull together. You need two ingredients: pineapple juice and champagne. As always, fresh pineapple juice is always going to taste better than store bought juice. Using fresh pineapple juice is what will significantly improve the quality of your mimosa more so than the quality of alcohol here.
I use a juicer for all my fresh juice making needs. It is incredibly easy to pass chunks of pineapple through the juicer to get fresh pineapple juice.
If you don’t have a juicer, you can blend the pineapple to get more of a purée and then pass that through a fine mesh strainer. This option will take a bit more time though and may require you to use more pineapple.
To serve, fill half the glass with pineapple juice and top off with champagne. It is best to open your bubbly and mix these right before serving so they taste the freshest.
Do you have to use champagne in a mimosa?
Technically a mimosa is made with champagne. However we are already adding a pineapple twist here so you can definitely substitute out the champagne for any sort of bubbly. The taste will be just as good and your guests won’t even know the difference!
