This is a very fun, playful, and festive cocktail. It is the perfect drink to serve on Valentine’s Day, for a bridal shower or a brunch. This is an easy-to-make mimosa that highlights the festive and floral flavors of rose.
Mimosas are a popular brunch drink, typically made with fruit juice and sparkling wine or champagne. Here, I’ve swapped the fruit juice with rose syrup for a festive spin on the classic.
What to Serve With Rose Mimosas
Rose mimosas can be served alone to sip on over conversation. They also go well with anything mimosas or champagne might be served with, such as chocolate truffles or appetizers. They are great with egg dishes like egg bhurji, pastries, or, in keeping with the rose theme, gulab jamun cake.
A popular Indian drink is made by mixing rose syrup with milk or water. This mimosa is inspired by that. You can easily make a non-alcoholic version by replacing sparkling wine with club soda.
- Use Fooh Afza instead of plain rose syrup. Rooh Afza is a brand of rose syrup that has additional herbal and fruit flavorings.
- Use rose water and simple syrup or a sweetener like honey to save the step of making the syrup.
- Swap the rose for classic champagne, rose Moscato, or sparkling Moscato. If you use Moscato, use less syrup to avoid making it too sweet.
- Add a shot of gin or vodka for a stiffer drink
- 6 oz sparkling wine such as champagne
- 1 tsp rose syrup
- Add the rose syrup to a champagne glass.
- Top with sparkling wine to fill the glass.
- Garnish with a strawberry.
