Brunch Basics: Blackberry Citrus Mimosa

GDH_BlackberryCitrusMimosa_2013

Brunch and Mimosas, for many, go together like peanut butter and chocolate.  You can have one without the other, but isn’t it so much more fun when they are combined!  Why not do a twist though on an old favorite.  The blending together of the orange juice and the fresh blackberries really makes for a delicious combination.  The other great thing is that you can also make this into a fun, non-alcoholic drink for those who prefer not to have champagne.  Combine the juice mixture with either club soda or ginger ale for a bubbly non-alcoholic alternative!

Blackberry Citrus Mimosa

  • 60 fluid oz Orange Juice
  • 6-8 oz fresh blackberries
  • 1 bottle of champagne (or ginger ale, club soda, etc. for non-alcoholic version)

Blend together the orange juice and blackberries until smooth consistency.

Refrigerate juice mixture for at least one hour.

Pour champagne to half way point of glasses.  Add juice mixture until glass is full.

Click glasses and enjoy!

    How fun! I love blackberries — think thawed out frozen ones would work just as well?

    The kids always lobby for brinner (“breakfast for dinner”) — so I’m thinking that my husband and I might enjoy these instead of decaf coffee. They almost seem like a dessert! Thanks so much for sharing!

      I think the thawed frozen blackberries would work just fine!! And I think this would be perfect for brinner! 🙂

    Simple yet so elegant!
    I love that the recipe allows for a non-alcoholic version too…what would you suggest works best…the club soda or ginger ale?

      Thanks! And I’ve tried it with both the club soda and the ginger ale, both are great, though if I would have to choose I would say the club soda.

    This sounds divine. It’s OK to have mimosas at midnight, right?
