Strawberry Cream Mimosa
The only brunch beverage you’ll want! This mimosa is delicious and beautiful. Serve for brunch and holidays!

Bubbly sparkling champagne with refreshing raspberry and strawberry frozen cream sweetened with Sweet’N Low make this the ultimate brunch beverage.
Every leisurely brunch deserves a delicious cocktail recipe to share with friends. Whatever you’ll be serving, Strawberry Cream Mimosas will pair perfectly and satisfy any sweet tooth without all the extra calories.
A weekend brunch is a good time to break out the bubbly and share a light, crisp and refreshing beverage with friends and family. Brunch beverages should be fun, refreshing and exciting. If you’re looking for a beverage to serve that guests will love, this is the recipe!
I’ve lightened up the classic mimosa recipe by using Sweet’N Low® as a zero calorie sweetener. I used unsweetened fresh fruit instead of pre-made juice and sweetened it with Sweet’N Low and honey. The fresh fruit cream is full of flavor and creaminess that pairs perfectly with champagne. Mimosas are the classic brunch beverages to serve and this drink is both delicious and adorable.
Sweet’N Low is diabetic friendly and helps reduce calories in drink recipes. To find more recipes to use it in, click here.
To make this recipe, start with fresh or frozen strawberries and raspberries. Heat them up on the stove top to get them nice a soupy. Sweeten it with Sweet’N Low and a little honey to give it a nice flavor without all the extra calories. Blend it up in a blender and press it through a fine mesh strainer to separate the juice from seeds and skin.
Pour in half and half cream, stir and pour in ice cube trays or a freezer safe dish. I like to use an ice cube tray and allow it to come to room temperature for about 5-10 minutes to easily remove the cubes. Place liquid mixture in the freezer for at least for hours of store until ready to use. Pour champagne half way up glass and add strawberry cream cubes.
This Recipe’s Must-Haves
The only real cutting you’ll need to do is to remove the tops of the strawberries. For this, I use my chef’s knife and favorite cutting board.
You’ll need a blender like this Vitamix to blend together the strawberries!
Finally, I don’t have the link to the exact stemless champagne flutes you see here. However, these are pretty darn close and super cute!

a Rafflecopter giveaway
I thought I would start the week out with a bang after seeing this on Pinterest. Who’s to argue with that? How about I add some fruit into the mix to make things a bit healthier? Strawberries, honey and sherry blended up make for a pretty pink base. A couple of Napoleon Bee glasses with stripey straw and juicy garnish… Topped with sparkling, dry wine makes for a VERY cheerful way to start (or end) any day. Ok, maybe not a workday. Do yourself a favour and don’t waste the good stuff on this drink, the strawberries are the star. Now, enjoy your Sunday and have another bottle of bubbly at the ready-just in case. When you have a drink this pretty people tend to spontaneously show up. And they do disappear pretty quickly. And don’t forget that there are prizes galore!

Orange Strawberry Mimosa
An updated take on the classic cocktail, these Strawberry Orange Mimosas are perfect for your next brunch or outdoor party. Freshly squeezed orange juice mixed with sweet, pureed strawberries atop a bubbly glass of champagne – perfect for spring and summer!
Remember brunch? I do…and I’m longing for it.
I’m talking brunch with your girlfriends. Long, leisurely brunches with great conversation and maybe it’s nice out and you are languishing in the sunshine together. Maybe you are even wearing a new sundress.
And you are definitely sipping something delicious. When I think of brunching with my girlfriends, I think of fresh fruit, light and bubbly drinks like these Orange Strawberry Mimosas.
Not only are these great for a summertime brunch (or just an ordinary Sunday morning, no judgement), but they’re a hit at bridal showers, a fun girly get together with friends, Mother’s day, Valentine’s day, the list could go on. Really any holiday or celebration where a refreshing pink drink can make the day better. We will all be there soon enough, friends!
Ingredients for Orange Strawberry Mimosas
- orange juice – you can use freshly squeezed or store-bought with pulp (If you don’t like pulp you can buy without, but I kind of love it!) and make sure it’s nice and chilled.
- fresh strawberries – frozen strawberries could be substituted but be sure to thaw them or you’ll end up with more of a frozen cocktail as opposed to the classic version. Although that could be a tasty option too! For fresh strawberries, don’t forget to remove their green tops!
- champagne – Brut, Cava, or dry Prosecco are all good options too. Chilled, of course.
How to make Easy Orange Strawberry Mimosas
- Puree your strawberries in a high speed blender or food processor, adding a splash of the fresh orange juice as necessary to properly puree.
- Divide the strawberry mixture evenly into the bottom of 4 champagne flutes.
- Holding your glass at an angle, fill your champagne flute about ¾ of the way with your champagne, Prosecco, Cava, or Brut.
- Top with fresh or store bought orange juice, garnish with a fresh strawberry or an orange slice (or both for maximum drink appeal), serve, and enjoy!
Alternatively, you can blend the strawberries and orange juice together and mix with champagne and serve that way instead of layering the ingredients. Both options are yummy!
How many oranges should I use if I opt for the freshly squeezed version?
It took me about 4 oranges for a batch of 4 cocktails. A cocktail recipe and an arm workout all in one!
Can I make a larger batch to serve at a party or for more guests?
Of course! Just double (or triple) up on your ingredients and you’re ready to please the masses. You can even make the orange juice and strawberry puree ahead of time, and store it in a pitcher. Add in fresh fruit and hold off on the champagne until ready to serve. Pour in the bubbly and there you have it!
Can I make non-alcoholic Orange Strawberry Mimosas?
Absolutely. Instead of champagne, use something with carbonation like a sparkling water. This is a great option if you’ve got kiddos around and you don’t want them to feel left out of the party!

Three weeks into Nerd Month (read more about Nerd Month here) and we’ve done recipes for (among others) a darkly beautiful murder drama, hardcore AI sci-fi, and multiple tales of epic mythological battles. Today we’re changing gears and going with a comedy, Happy Endings!
Did you watch Happy Endings while it was on? I was such a massive fan of this show. It was the best of the Friends-style comedies that everyone was making a few years ago and so packed full of jokes that you could watch each episode twenty times and still find new things to laugh at. If you haven’t seen it, all three seasons are available on Hulu.
This recipe is actually part one of a two-part recipe pairing (come back Friday for part two) from one of my favorite Happy Endings episodes, in which characters, Penny and Alex, both drink about a million mimosas with very different results.
You’ll see what happens to Alex on Friday (or watch that clip, it’s very funny), but Penny finds she can speak fluent Italian when she’s drunk.
And guys, this is legit. I may have consumed these photo shoot mimosas , and let’s just say, my Italian, post- mimosas was great.
To be honest, I don’t actually love straight mimosas because I’m not a huge orange juice fan, but I desperately wanted to do this recipe pairing, so I got creative.
I added a simple homemade strawberry syrup to the mix to give it a slightly tarter, sharper sweetness and oh man, that little upgrade made all the difference. I could drink so many of these.
They are also just straight up beautiful. I mean, look at them. Don’t you want to invite all of your friends over and let them admire your handiwork while you drink sparkling wine and speak terrible Italian together? Don’t you!?
Usually mimosas are made with Champagne. I used prosecco because of the Italian theme and because it’s what the internet tells me all the cool kids are doing now. You can also use cava or whatever dry sparkling wine you have on hand. If you don’t do alcohol, I also heartily recommend using seltzer or club soda to make mocktails.
How ever you enjoy them, these will make for a lovely addition to any brunch.

Fill each champagne flute with 1/2 ounce St. Germain liqueur.

If you prefer a non-alcoholic variation of this cocktail, you can use an elderflower drink concentrate or syrup. It has all the same flavor without the alcohol. Mix 2 ounces with 3 1/2 ounces seltzer for a perfect, refreshing non-alcoholic beverage that makes it feel like summer no matter the time of year.
What Is St. Germain?
St. Germain is made from elderflower, a flower that is used to make cordials, wine, and non-alcoholic drinks. Elderflower grows in the United Kingdom and it is a tradition to use them to make homemade cordials in the summertime. In 2007, the elderflower liqueur was released under the name St. Germain, giving this versatile spirit a more prominent place on the liquor store shelves. St. Germain pairs nicely with not only champagne but also gin, vodka, white wine, and whiskey. It can also be enjoyed over ice on its own.
- Elderflower Grapefruit Mimosa: Add 2 to 3 tablespoons (1 to 1 1/2 ounces) grapefruit juice. Garnish with fruit or fresh herbs such as thyme.
- Blood Orange Mimosa: Add about 1 ounce freshly squeezed blood orange juice to the St. Germain.
- Elderflower Guava Mimosa: Include an ounce or so of guava nectar along with the liqueur.
- Elderflower Mimosa: Add a splash of St. Germain to a traditional mimosa recipe.
Best Champagne for This Cocktail
When mixing the bubbly stuff with other ingredients to make a cocktail, you don't want to use that very expensive bottle you've been saving for a special occasion. This drink calls for a tasty but affordable champagne—or another type of sparkling wine, such as Cava or Prosecco.
La Croix Mimosa Recipe:
The following recipe makes one drink.
- 3 oz. of Extra Dry or Brut Champagne (I do Extra Dry for added sweetness, but Brut has less sugar content)
- 1 can of Pineapple Strawberry La Croix Curate
- 1 Sliced Strawberry (for added sweetness and flavor)
My Hack for Drinking Less Alcohol:
By now, I am sure you can see how substituting orange juice for La Croix cuts sugar and caloric content, but I bet you are still wondering how this formulation helps me to cut back on the total alcohol consumption. Well&hellip
I prefer to serve this drink in a large wine glass or even a 16 oz pint glass (this just didn&rsquot make for pretty blog pictures).
I like to fill the wine glass first with ice, measure 2 to 3 oz of champagne, and then I fill the remainder of the glass with my La Croix. This way, the drink lasts much longer than if I were to serve it in a traditional Champagne flute. This also allows me to better dilute the champagne with the mixer so that the drink is not primarily booze&hellip.it&rsquos actually primarily La Croix, but with all of the carbonation I don&rsquot even miss the Champagne.
For all of my fellow lushes out there&hellipI totally &ldquoget&rdquo your apprehension here. In fact, my initial fear was that this drink wouldn&rsquot get me &ldquoturnt&rdquo like the full-strength version. Much to my surprise however, I still receive the desired effect from this recipe (I think that all of the carbonation just goes straight to the brain). While I typically end up consuming four of these babies, I don&rsquot have to feel any guilt because that is ultimately only 2 glasses of champagne .
Hopefully some of you found this hack to be revelatory. For those of you who could care less about this sort of thing&hellipI apologize. I promise to be back next week with more interior design and DIY material.
Wishing all of you beautiful babes a wonderful week! Now get out there and design some good vibes!
