And that means you need mimosas! We’ve got you covered, girlfriend – here are five of our favorite brunch cocktails and mimosas.
Watermelon Agua Fresca
Not only does this mimosa look pretty, it tastes amazing. Blended watermelon, lime juice, agave syrup, and your favorite bottle of Champagne. The delicious citrus taste of lime, plus the refreshing and antioxidant properties of watermelon, makes this a great choice if you wake up with a ringing head after a long night of partying.

Cranberry Orange Mimosa
A hearty dose of sour/tangy orange and cranberry is just what the doctor ordered with this delectable and pretty-in-pink sweet breakfast drink. You’ll want to use a sweeter sparkling wine such as Prosecco, since cranberries are notoriously acidic. A fresh squeeze of orange brightens up the color and adds some much-needed Vitamin C to help boost your immune system. Get this delicious mimosa recipe here.
Pineapple Coconut Champagne Cocktail
Does it get any better than this frothy pina colada-inspired concoction? We beg to differ. This one is cool, refreshing, and full of tangy pineapple goodness. The recipe calls for pineapple juice but you can just as easily blend up a whole pineapple for added freshness and nutritional value. Your favorite semi-sweet bubbly wine will do just fine here.

Pomegranate Cava Sparkling Cocktail
Pomegranate and Cava, the sparkling wine grown in the Catalunya region of Spain, go together perfectly. Pomegranate is native to the Mediterranean, the perfect fruit to mix with this light and beautifully-tinted sparkling wine. The sweetness of the pomegranate plus the antioxidant qualities of its juice make it an ideal drink to nurse yourself back from the edge. Get this delicious mimosa recipe here.
Strawberry Lemonade Mimosa
Sometimes you want something simple and old-fashioned, but with just a little bit of a twist. The strawberry lemonade mimosa isn’t so far removed from the original, with fresh-squeezed lemons and strawberry syrup adding a bit of summery fun to the traditional orange juice/champagne combo. It’ll get the job done without requiring too much effort. Yum! Get this delicious mimosa recipe here.
