A Classic Brunch Cocktail

I love mimosas. There’s just something about them that always puts a smile on my face. They’re the perfect drink for brunches and, let’s be real, the most acceptable form of day drinking. There’s nothing to start the weekend off quite like a good mimosa, whether it’s an orange mimosa or something a bit more creative.

So this Pineapple Mimosa recipe is just up our alley! It’s a simple twist on a traditional mimosa and while they can certainly add any garnishes you’d like, you really just need two ingredients – your favorite sparkling wine and pineapple juice! I highly recommend using fresh pineapple for this recipe if you can! #worthit

What You’ll Need

Truly, you just need 2 ingredients to make this perfect cocktail. But feel free to add some additional garnishes to make it an extra pretty drink.

  • Champagne – See below for notes on the best champagne for a mimosa.
  • Pineapple Juice – Your favorite pineapple juice, fresh or bottled.
  • Pineapple leaves – If you use fresh pineapple juice, I like to use the leaves as a garnish. You can also add a pineapple wedge instead.
  • Maraschino cherry – I like to add a cherry for a pop of color.
  • Champagne flutes – Stick with some classic glass champagne flutes or if you’re a klutz like we are or serving a big group, try these unbreakable champagne flutes.

What’s the Best Champagne for a Mimosa?

You can use champagne or a sparkling wine like Cava or Prosecco to make your mimosas. If you opt for real champagne, avoid anything that says “doux”, avoid it as it will be way too sweet. “Dry’ and “extra dry” are both options that will give you a slightly sweet flavor while “brut” will offer the least amount of sweetness.

Prosecco is a sparkling wine from Italy and also a great option for mimosas. Again, just pay attention to the “dry” and “brut” label.

For these pineapple mimosas, I recommend a dry champagne or sparkling wine.

How to Make Pineapple Mimosas

The art of making a mimosa is really just a general guideline. Add more or less champagne depending on your preference. For a stronger drink, more champagne. For a sweeter, fruity drink, more pineapple juice. Then garnish with a pineapple wedge or leaf and/or cherry, and enjoy!

  • Add the champagne. Follow the champagne flutes approximately 3/4 of the way with champagne.
  • Top with juice. Top off with pineapple juice and enjoy.

Recipe Variations

There are many different ways to switch up this simple drink recipe. Here are a few ideas:

  • Pineapple strawberry mimosa. Muddle some fresh strawberries in the glass or simply add one as a garnish.
  • Orange pineapple mimosas. Add a splash of orange juice in addition to the pineapple juice for another tropical twist.
  • Make a Hawaiian pineapple mimosas. For bright, colorful twist, add a splash of coconut rum after the prosecco and then top the drink off with a drizzle of grenadine for a bright red color.
  • Add some lime juice. Some people enjoy add a squeeze of freshly squeeze lime juice for a pop of citrus.

Serving Suggestions

Pineapple mimosas are ideal for so many occasions. Here are a few of our favorite times to serve this fruity drink:

  • Bridal shower
  • Baby shower
  • Mother’s Day
  • Brunch
  • Birthdays
  • Easter

Can I Make This Ahead of Time?

Since you want the champagne or sparkling wine to be bubbly when served, it’s best to not make these mimosas in advance. But don’t worry, they only take a few seconds to prepare!
