Creamsicle Mimosas

We all love a good mimosa with brunch but if you really want to up your brunch game then you NEED Creamsicle Mimosas in your life! This easy mimosa recipe is anything but basic. Your favorite boozy champagne cocktail just got a major upgrade. It’s a little bit slushy, a little bit bubbly, and tastes just like the adult version of a creamsicle. You’ll love this fun new twist on a classic recipe. And it’s here just in time for Mother’s Day!! Give mom what she really wants for Mother’s Day this year…Creamisicle Mimosas!!!

Here’s all you’ll need: orange zest, orange juice, half and half cream, superfine sugar, and champagne.

A teeny tiny bit of prep work is all that’s needed to make this fabulous drink. But don’t worry…it’s makes a big batch! We need a little orange zest. Orange zest is the colorful peel of the orange and adds a bright citrus note to recipes. Run the skin of an orange against a grater to create orange zest.

Next add the orange zest, orange juice, half and half cream, and superfine sugar to a blender. Blend all the ingredients until the sugar is dissolved.

If you can’t find superfine sugar in stores, you can easily make it yourself at home in a food processor. The granulated sugar will turn powdery and have more of a fine grain.

Transfer the creamsicle mixture to an 8-inch square dish. Cover and freeze for 6 hours or overnight.

Divide the frozen creamsicle mixture into 16 equal portions. Spoon into a champagne glass and top with champagne.

Don’t have enough time to freeze? No worries! This mixture is SO versatile. You can use the unfrozen creamsicle mixture and still get the same great taste and skip the slushy texture.

Garnish Creamsicle Mimosas with orange slices if desired and enjoy! Substitute Sprite or Ginger Ale in place of champagne for a fun, non-alcoholic version that you can share with the kiddos. Or keep it all for yourself. I’m not judging!! Pair with our Puff Pastry Eggs Benedict and send me an invite! I’ll be there in a jiffy.
