I read it on the paper this morning that we are about to get hit with yet another heatwave. I can totally feel it coming. The humidity mixed in with the warm temperatures makes it hard to breathe here in Vermont. If you feel the same way, join me as I make a refreshing blood orange mimosa to cool myself off.

Now, I know this is a food blog and here I am sharing a blood orange juice mimosa recipe, but to be honest it is hard to call this 2-ingredient cocktail a “recipe”. Plus, I am making your life easier, but replacing freshly squeezed orange juice with Powell & Mahoney’s newest cocktail mixer flavor, Blood Orange Mimosa.

If you have been a regular reader, you have probably seen me share several cocktail recipes using Powell & Mahoney mixers before. I have been a long time fan of their non-GMO certified cocktail mixers made without the use of refined sugars.

I know you like them too as Jalapeno Margarita, Frozen Pineapple Margarita, Frozen Blueberry Margaritas and Lime Martini, all recipes that are made with their mixers, have been long-time reader favorites.

Today’s cocktail is a classic brunch drink that is made with champagne and orange juice. While squeezing your orange juice with fresh oranges is always a good idea, I prefer Powell & Mahoney’s Blood Orange Mimosa especially if I am making it in a pitcher to serve a crowd. It is not only delicious but also super convenient.

What is blood orange?

Originally from Italy, blood oranges are a natural mutation of the sweet oranges that we all know. While from the outside they look like regular oranges, when sliced they are red (resembling the color of human blood) on the inside.

They owe their distinct color to the presence of anthocyanin, a pigment that is generally found in red, blue and purple. They mainly grow during the colder months of the year, usually between December and May.

Ratio for Orange Juice to Champagne for Mimosa Recipe

You might ask, how much champagne and orange juice for mimosas?

The best ratio for orange juice to champagne depends on your preference. I like mine with 4-1 ratio, meaning 4 parts of champagne to 1 part of juice.

However, you can adjust the ratio to your preference. Alternatively, you can swap champagne with sparkling wine for an inexpensive alternative.

How to make mimosas in a pitcher

Simply fill a large pitcher with a bottle of champagne (750 ml bottle) (or sparkling wine) and slowly pour 1 ½ cups of blood orange juice over it.

However, like I mentioned before, there are no rules when it comes to mimosas so feel free to adjust the ratios according to your liking.

If you want to make it even more delicious and pleasing to the eye, add in a few slices of oranges and other colorful fruits such as pomegranate seeds and strawberries.

While you can certainly squeeze your blood oranges, I love the ease of using a bottle of Powell & Mahoney Blood Orange Mimosa (affiliate link). It is not only delicious but also convenient. And if you have ever had to squeeze oranges to make mimosas for a crowd, I am pretty sure you will appreciate the ease of it more than anyone else.

A Few Tips for The Best Blood Orange Mimosa Recipe

  • If you want to turn the volume up a bit, add in a splash of orange liquor (such as Grand Marnier) into the mixture.
  • While the classic mimosa recipe is made with orange juice and champagne, there is no rule that you cannot use prosecco or other sparkling wine. Or try your hand in making Non-Alcoholic Mimosa using alcohol-free wine.
  • While people usually serve mimosas in champagne flutes, I opted for these beautiful glasses (affiliate link.) However, you can serve them in whatever glass you have on hand.
  • In terms of garnishes, I opted for fresh strawberries, but if you can get your hands on blood oranges feel free to use them instead.
  • If you are serving mimosas for a crowd and want to set up a mimosa buffet you should check out my two other Powell and Mahoney flavors; Peach Bellini and Mango Margarita.
