Mother’s Day is two days away and many of us are still making last minute plans. Whether we plan our Mother’s Day celebrations in advance or last minute, these Ombré Sunrise Mimosas are the perfect addition. These beautiful drinks are not only tasty but they only require four ingredients to make. Not to mention, they’re so visually appealing you can’t help but stare at them and all of their beauty while drinking.Jump to Recipe
I got the idea for this drink after going out to brunch with friends one weekend. I knew as soon as I saw their variation of this mimosa I wanted to create my own. This is how my ombré sunrise mimosas were thought of and then created. If you’re like me then you enjoy more champagne than juice in your mimosas. Ha! I also don’t discriminate on what type of drinkware is used either. From these beautiful champagne flutes to plastic cups, they both get the job done. I recommend using clear no matter which drink ware you prefer.
As with any recipe this recipe can be adjusted to individual taste buds. As I stated above I enjoy more champagne than juice in my ombré sunrise mimosa. Or any mimosa for that matter. However, it may be different for you and those you are making the drink for. I make it a rule of thumb to ask people their ratio preference when making mixed drinks. Especially mimosas because they’re very easy to make and adjust for each individual. There’s no wrong way to enjoy a mimosa! Now let’s get started with the recipe below.
Ombré Sunrise Mimosas
A beautiful and delicious mimosa recipe perfect for spring or summer time brunch, events, and holidays!
- 3 oz. Champagne
- 1-2 oz. Orange Juice
- 1 Tbsp. Cran-Grape Juice
- 1 Tbsp. Grenadine
- Sliced Orange *optional for garnish*
Pour the champagne into the glass first. (It is important to pour the ingredients into the glass as instrusted to get the ombré look)
Now pour the orange juice in next.
Add the cran-grape juice to the mimosa mixture.
Finally, gently add the grenadine to the drink. Preferably aiming closer to one side of the glass instead of in the middle.
Let it rest for a few seconds for the ombré to fully set. Remember you can adjust ingredients next time if you prefer.
Add a slice of orange to the rim and enjoy!
