Sunday brunch mimosas are made to order with our super simple grapefruit mimosa recipe. You can easily make this happy a.m. cocktail in advance or set up a station where your pals can make their own!
The process is practical and couldn’t be easier—simply fill each champagne glass (or pitcher) with fresh muddled sage, three parts champagne and one part ruby red grapefruit juice. Garnish with a slice of grapefruit then enjoy your own slice of heaven!
We used an inexpensive Prosecco in the test kitchen, but any variety of your favorite sparkling wine will do. If sage isn’t your thing, you can use any of your favorite fresh herbs like rosemary, basil or mint—just be sure to gently bruise the leaves using a wooden spoon to release the oils.
Not just for brunch, our grapefruit mimosa recipe is a fun take on the traditional mimosa for special occasions like Mother’s Day, bridal showers, housewarming parties or college graduations.
