Why You’ll Love This Recipe
- Refreshing: It’s a perfect blend of sweet and tart, making it an ideal choice for brunch or a refreshing afternoon treat.
- Delicate twist: This recipe allows you to take your typical mimosa to the next level by incorporating the delicate, fruity flavor of peaches.
- Good for special occasions: Peach mimosas are the perfect addition to any special occasion, such as Mother’s Day brunch or a summer garden party during peach season.
You’ll need the following ingredients to make these mimosas with peaches:
- Prosecco: We recommend using a bottle from the Champagne region of France to add an extra touch of elegance to your peach mimosa recipe. Prosecco tends to be more light and fruity, complimenting the peach nectar well.
- Peach Juice: If you cannot find peach juice, you can make your own by blending fresh peaches in a high-speed blender with some water. For an extra fun twist, try adding some pineapple juice or fresh orange juice to the mix.
How To Make Peach Mimosas
Pour cold peach juice into a champagne flute.
Tilt the glass at a 45-degree angle and slowly pour in the prosecco to reduce fizz spillover. Let any excess fizz fall down before topping off with more prosecco. Stop pouring when the liquid is just below the rim of the glass.
Do not shake or stir.
Serve immediately and enjoy!
- To serve your peach mimosas in the most elegant way possible, use champagne glasses. This not only adds a touch of sophistication but also allows the bubbles from the Prosecco to rise attractively.
- You can also garnish your mimosa cocktail with fresh mint leaves or other fresh herbs to enhance its visual appeal and add a hint of freshness.
- For a fun twist, consider setting up a mimosa bar on Sunday mornings or special occasions. Provide different types of fruit juice, and guests can make their own mixtures.
Storage & Reheating
Once mixed, mimosas should ideally be consumed immediately to enjoy the fresh, fizzy sensation. However, if you have any leftover juice mixture, you can store it in a large pitcher in the refrigerator for up to two days. Just make sure to add the prosecco or sparkling wine just before serving.
Additions & Substitutions
If fresh peaches are not in season, canned peach purée is a great substitute. It gives the same delightful peachy flavor to your brunch cocktails. To add a touch of sweetness, you can stir in some simple syrup.
If prosecco is not available, any sparkling wine would work well in this recipe.
What should I serve with this refreshing mimosa recipe?
This peach mimosa pairs beautifully with a light brunch menu. Think fresh berries, yogurt, homemade granola, and fruit scones. The best part is you can prepare these dishes in advance, leaving you free to enjoy your refreshing drink and good company. Remember, the beauty of this recipe lies in its simplicity. The flavors of fresh peaches and prosecco take center stage in this classic mimosa, making it a delightful beverage choice for any occasion.
Are peach mimosas and peach bellinis the same?
Not quite. Though the drinks are very similar, a peach mimosa is equal parts peach juice and sparkling wine, while a peach bellini is peach puree mixed with prosecco.
Can I use peach schnapps in a peach mimosa?
Yes, but use it sparingly. Adding a splash of peach schnapps is a great way to intensify the peach flavor in your mimosa, but a little goes a long way. A less-is-more approach is the best way to incorporate peach schnapps into your cocktail without overwhelming it.
Is there a difference between white and yellow peaches?
Yes there is. White peaches are sweeter and have a delicate floral quality to them, while yellow peaches are more acidic and are on the tarter side, especially when they’re not ripe.
