I went to brunch with my girlfriends last week and as I was sipping my mimosa I thought “there has to be a better way!” to make this traditional cocktail so much fun. My version of the mimosa is perfect for a bridal shower or engagement party.
Things you’ll need
- Orange juice
- Sparkling wine
- Engagement ring ice cube molds (Found here on Amazon.com)
- Champagne or Wine glasses
Pour the orange juice into the molds. It’s made of rubber so pour the orange juice near your freezer so you have a short trip with less drips. (I definitely needed a sponge because of a few shakey pours!)
Freeze the molds for 4 hours. Make sure they are completely solid as they will break apart if they’re not completely frozen.
Add the sparkling wine or champagne to the wine glasses.
Ever so carefully pop the ring cubes out of the molds. Go slowly and if one breaks, then add more orange juice around the break and re-freeze.
If you want to make more in preparation for a party – put the ring cubes into a ziploc container and put back in the freezer. They store great and you can make them ahead of time.
When you’re ready to serve – pop the ring cubes into the glasses. If your Sparkling Wine is chilled, the ring cubes will melt slower. Looking for less champagne and more orange juice? Add more ring cubes to up the ratio!
As the ice cubes melt – a mimosa is born! These easy and gorgeous drinks are perfect for a bridal shower, engagement party, or for morning of a wedding with the bride and her girls! I also saw countless ice molds online and I know this recipe will be great for many other occasions.
