Mimosas are so yesterday. And by “yesterday” I mean they’re so hot that I had to make another big batch of Mimosa lip balm just yesterday!

Since its early days at the Ritz Hotel in Paris back in the Roaring Twenties, the Mimosa cocktail has become a favorite complement to brunches and the traditional way to toast the bride at bridal showers.

While there are variations of this cocktail, the most basic recipe includes simply chilled orange juice and champagne. Proportions vary widely (though most recipes are more generous with the bubbly!). Pour both into a champagne flute and garnish with fruit if desired. A splash of Grand Marnier can also be added, but isn’t necessary.

We recently shared a way to bring the Mimosa to your bridal shower dessert table; check out our recipe for Mimosa Whoopie Pies for a sweet treat your guests will love.

Judging by “what’s pouring” in our lab right now, Mimosa bridal shower favors are hugely popular. If you’re looking for your own, we’d love to help you! Contact us to discuss the details of your Bridal Shower Brunch or other event!
