Pomegranate Mimosa is so delicious and bubbly, and the perfect cocktail for a festive occasion! It combines the rich, tart flavor of pomegranate with the effervescence of champagne, creating a drink that’s both refreshing and celebratory.
This Pomegranate Mimosa recipe is straightforward and easy to follow, requiring only two ingredients—four if you include the garnishes. It’s an excellent choice for a New Year’s celebration or any festive gathering. The addition of rosemary not only lends a touch of greenery but also imparts a subtle, aromatic flavor that complements the pomegranate and champagne.
How To Make Pomegranate Mimosa
- Prepare the Ingredients: Gather 1/2 cup of pomegranate seeds, 2 to 3 cups of chilled pomegranate juice, and a 750 mL bottle of chilled champagne. Also, have some rosemary sprigs ready for garnish.
- Combine Pomegranate Seeds and Champagne: Add pomegranate seeds to flute glasses and pour the chilled champagne over the seeds, filling the glasses about 2/3 of the way up.
- Add Pomegranate Juice: Slowly pour the chilled pomegranate juice over the champagne.
- Garnish and Serve: Serve the mimosa garnished with a sprig of rosemary.
Recipe Tips And Variations
- Chill the Ingredients: Ensure that both the champagne and pomegranate juice are well-chilled before mixing. This keeps the mimosa refreshing and bubbly.
- Non-Alcoholic Version: Replace the champagne with sparkling white grape juice or non-alcoholic sparkling wine.
- Different Juices: Experiment with other fruit juices like orange juice for a classic mimosa feel, or cranberry juice for a tart twist.
- Sparkling Additions: Use a splash of club soda or sparkling water for a lighter version with less alcohol.
- Decorative Rims: Rim the glasses with sugar or a mix of sugar and pomegranate zest for an extra festive touch.
How To Make Mimosa In A Pitcher
To serve mimosas to a large group, begin by pouring the champagne into a pitcher, followed by adding the pomegranate juice. Avoid stirring the mixture to preserve the bubbles. Before serving, chill the pitcher in the refrigerator for about 10 to 15 minutes. Do not let it sit in the fridge for longer than that because the bubbles will fade away, resulting in a flat drink that lacks fizz.
