Orange Creamsicle Mimosas taste like an orange creamsicle in a glass and are perfect for brunch! They come together in a snap, too, requiring only three ingredients.
These mimosas are incredibly easy to make
Regular mimosas are a no brainer, right? A little OJ, a little bubbly... and that's it!
Well, these Orange Creamsicle Mimosas require only one additional, very simple, step. To make these into creamsicle mimosas you'll just add a shot of whipped cream vodka along with the OJ.
So, if you can pour some stuff into a glass, you can make these mimosas with 0 problems.
What kind of bubbly should you use?
No need to get too terribly fancy here. I'm no snob when it comes to bubbles, so I usually pick up a budget-priced bottle. You may be able to tell that I used Barefoot Bubbly, which is very affordable.
I almost always buy a bottle of prosecco, rather than champagne, for this reason. But if you want to use legit champagne (or a sparkling wine, or whatever), do that! Choose your own adventure.
And as far as how sweet your bubbles should be? It's a matter of personal preference. The OJ and whipped cream vodka are pretty sweet on their own, so you may consider balancing that out with a less sweet bottle of bubbles. But if sweet is your thing, do it up big. You do you.
Wondering what to pair these mimosas with?
My first inclination is to pair these mimosas with a decadent breakfast or brunch spread. Think along the lines of sweet and fluffy cinnamon rolls or my Crab Cake Eggs Florentine.
This Hatch Chile Relleno Casserole or Bacon and Egg Breakfast Rice Bowl also look pretty delicious.
Or, you know what, just have one just to have one. No need to wait until breakfast/brunch 😉
Looking for other recipes?
If you like this mimosa, then this Orange Creamsicle Crush would be right up your alley! Cara Cara Orange Margaritas are pretty great, too. And let us not forget about my Blood Orange Bourbon Sour.
These aren't alcoholic, but my soft and sweet Orange Cookies are pretty fabulous, if I do say so myself.
If you're in search of more bubbles, I've got you covered there, too. These Apple Cider Mimosas are super easy to throw together, and taste great. They're perfect for the upcoming Fall season. Mimosa Moscow Mules are also a fun riff on a couple of classic cocktails.
Keeping with the Mule theme, here's a Pomegranate Champagne Moscow Mule! They were a fun change of pace on New Year's Eve several years ago. I also did a Chambord Kir Royale for NYE one year, and they were beautiful AND delicious. These Cranberry Rosemary French 75s are a great option, too.
Oh, and! These Blackberry Champagne Floats are so tasty and SO easy to make. Switch things up with different sorbets and garnishes, too.
