How To Make a Mango Mimosa
Place 1 tablespoon of Tajín on a plate and shake to evenly distribute.
Rub the rim of a cocktail coup or champagne glass with a lime wedge and dip the glass into Tajín to coat.
Pour in the mango juice, then slowly pour in the sparkling wine, stopping to let any foam fall before pouring in more. Pour until the liquid is just below the rim.
Do not shake or stir.
Garnish with a lime wedge, serve immediately, and enjoy!
- Make sure your sparkling wine is chilled before mixing. This keeps the mimosa nice and cool.
- If you want to prepare ahead, make the mango juice or puree in advance. Store it in the fridge and simply mix in the sparkling wine when ready to serve.
- Add a strawberry slice or a slice of fresh mango as a garnish for an added touch of elegance.
Storage & Reheating
Mimosas are best enjoyed fresh. However, if you have leftover mango juice or puree, you can store it in the fridge in an airtight container for up to a week. When you’re ready to serve, just add the chilled sparkling wine.
Additions & Substitutions
- Add a splash of rum for a rum runner inspired mango mimosa, or substitute the mango juice with other tropical juices like pineapple or passion fruit for a different flavor profile.
- If you prefer a less sweet drink, consider using a dry prosecco or sparkling wine.
- Add a touch of grenadine to the bottom of the glass for a beautiful sunrise mimosa effect.
