Mimosas are good, but these mimosas are out of this world. Citrus fruit is everywhere and making fresh juice is something that we love. Mixing this fresh juice with champagne is even better.
Having guests over for brunch? Do you have a house to clean and need motivation while you go room to room? This version of the classic mimosa is perfect. The guava adds a layer of subtle floral to the bright citrus. Additionally, the grapefruit and blood oranges give this drink a beautiful pinkish orange color which adds to their appeal. Most mimosas out there call for you to use triple sec but the combination of all the fresh citrus fruit makes that unnecessary and helps to take one less thing off the grocery list.
Guava May be a little difficult to find depending on where you live, but if you are lucky enough to find a few of them- make this drink! You won’t regret it!
Have an amazing brunch or just a really enjoyable day of chores. Cheers!
- 10 Small Guavas
- 1 Grapefruit (Peeled)
- 2 Mandarin Oranges (Peeled)
- 2 Blood Oranges (Peeled)
- 1 Navel Orange (Peeled)
- 1 Lemon (Peeled)
- 1 Lime (Peeled)
- 1 Bottle of Brut Champagne
- Prepare all fresh fruit.
- Juice the fruit into a large container. We recommend alternating citrus and guava to allow the juice from the citrus to incorporate into the less juicy guava. This will produce more of a guava taste.
- If you do not have a juicer you can also use a food processor to blend all the ingredients together. Make sure to strain the mixture after you blend it. The guava seeds are very hard and probably wouldn’t be all that enjoyable to drink.
- You can serve this one of two ways. 1. Mix the juice and the champagne together before serving in a large pitcher. 2. Serve the juice mixture with glasses of champagne and pour as much or as little juice into each glass served.
