Oh boy oh boy, I’m so excited about today’s recipe and really hope you are ready for a boozy addition to #EasterBrunch Week. It took long enough, didn’t it? I mean boozy brunches are just the best, right?

If you happened to miss my other recipes for #EasterBrunchWeek, I’ll list them below as the week progresses. I don’t want you to miss a single one, they are all really yummy and EASY to make too. 

Today we’re bringing out the liquid deliciousness in the form of Orange Creamsicle Mimosas. Every brunch deserves a great beverage, and mimosa and brunch are BFFs. 

Orange Creamsicle Mimosas are so simple to make, you’ll have a pitcher in no time flat. Trust me you’ll probably end up having a couple of these tasty drinks, it is brunch and it is definitely a time to just relax and enjoy.

The creamy orange base combines so wonderfully with a little bubbly. Simply whip up the base in a blender, fill a flute halfway and then top with your favorite bubbly of choice.

I filled up a gorgeous decanter from Grosche with the base mix. In reality, this beautiful Grosche glass decanter is a Water & Sangria Infuser (also great for brunch) but I knew it would be great for holding the fruity base mix. I simply poured it directly from the blender into the carafe.

What do you need to make Orange Creamsicle Mimosas?

  • Orange Juice
  • Sugar
  • Half and Half
  • Bubbly of choice: champagne, sparkling wine, non-alcoholic sparkling grape juice
  • Orange slices for garnish

 

Some tips for making Orange Creamsicle Mimosas:

  • You can easily half the recipe for a smaller batch. Or double the batch, no judging.
  • If preparing the base mix ahead of time, refrigerate and stir prior to pouring. 
  • Add in some fresh orange zest if desired.
  • Feel free to reduce the amount of sugar.
