4ouncesChampagne or Sparkling Wine- chilled (or sparkling wine or alcohol-removed Rosé!)
2 ouncesFresh Fruit Juice or Fruit Puree (shown here - Mango Puree)
1/4 to 1/2ounceLiqueur- chilled (shown here - Chambord)
Garnish: Fresh Fruit or Citrus (Raspberries, Orange Slices or twists, Strawberries, etc!)
Mango Puree (approximately 6 ounces, enough for 3 mimosas)
1largeripe Mango– peeled, pitted and cut into large chunks
1-2TBSGranulated Sugar or Honey!- depending upon how sweet your mango is!
1tspLemon Juice or Lime Juice!
For Each Mimosa: Pour 2 ounces of fruit juice or puree into each champagne flute. Slowly pour in 4 ounces of sparkling wine. Add in ¼- ½ ounce liqueur. Garnish with fruit. Serve and enjoy!
Make the Mango Puree: Place the mango (or choice of fruit), lemon juice and 1 tablespoon of sweetener in a high-powered blender or food processor. Add a pinch of kosher salt and puree until smooth. Taste and adjust for sweetness and tartness. Set aside in refrigerator until ready to use. (Tip: If you are swapping out the mango for a different fruit, you may want to strain the puree before using!)
Mango Puree: When adding sugar to the mixer, start with just 1 tablespoon of sugar! Blend and then taste the puree. You can always adjust for sweetness by adding more sugar (1 teaspoon at a time) until desired sweetness is achieved.
Storing Mango Puree: Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3 days.
Layering Champagne Cocktail: If you add the Chambord to the flute last it will sink to the bottom to create the layers of swirly colors!
