The classic mimosa gets kicked up a notch in this easy, beautiful and delicious Tequila Sunrise Mimosa. Just four ingredients are required!
Every brunch deserves an awesome mimosa, and this one does not disappoint. The addition of tequila gives it a unique deliciousness and the sunrise effect gives an absolutely gorgeous presentation.
Your simple ingredients are tequila, your favorite champagne (I like to use brut champagne), orange juice and grenadine. Orange slices for garnish are totally optional, but make it extra-special.
Do I Use White or Gold Tequila?
That’s totally up to you! I’ve drank these with both white and gold tequila and both were delicious. The amount of tequila is up to you, as well. Experiment with the amounts of each ingredient to customize it to your personal taste.
Can I Make This By The Pitcher?
Yes, but you’ll definitely lose some of the bubbles in the champagne. To make, pour tequila, champagne and orange juice in a pitcher. Pour into champagne flutes, then top with grenadine. You don’t want to store this for any length of time in the fridge, only up to ten minutes max before serving (store covered).
A special thanks to my friend Melissa for telling me about this recipe years ago; it’s definitely a go-to favorite mimosa!
