Mimosas are why we brunch and this strawberry mimosas recipe is everything we love about the classic, with a fun berry twist. We love to make when berry season is in full swing, when the strawberries are sweet and juicy.
It's beautiful and surprisingly easy to make. The extra step that this strawberry mimosa recipe requires is well worth the effort, and the blender does all the work. Feel free to customize the sweetness by adding more honey, or omitting it for a drier drink. Cheers!
You only need four ingredients to make this strawberry mimosa recipe. Here's what you'll need:
- Strawberries – fresh juicy strawberries with green tops removed.
- Orange juice – use store-bought or freshly squeezed orange juice to give the mimosa a lighter taste.
- Honey – optional, to sweeten things up. If you prefer a drier cocktail, leave it out.
- Sparkling wine – a dry sparkling wine works best and we usually go for cava or prosecco.
How to make a strawberry mimosa
Here's how we make this strawberry mimosa in a few simple steps:
- Start by adding the strawberries, orange juice, and honey (if using) to your blender then blend until it's smooth.
- Then, strain it through a fine-mesh sieve.
- Pour about ¼ cup of the strawberry juice in each flute glass and then carefully top with sparkling wine. It will bubble up a lot so go slow!
Like a sugar rim on your flute glass? Simply dip the rim in water and then in sugar.

The perfect ratio
A classic mimosa is equal parts fruit juice to sparkling wine, but you can adjust this ratio depending on your tastes or your crowd. If you know you like a stronger drink, add more sparkling wine. When we're serving these strawberry mimosas to a crowd, we usually opt for more juice.
Strawberry mimosa: FAQS
You can definitely make the strawberry orange juice ahead of time and store it in the fridge in a sealed jar for up to 3 days. Give it a little shake before using it as it will separate when it's stored.
This recipe actually makes 2 cups of strawberry orange juice, which is enough to make 8 mimosas. If you don't use it all right away, store extras in the fridge for up to 3 days.
You could use maple syrup in place of the honey but it will taste slightly more woodsy. Agave syrup also works well.

wonderful use of fresh strawberries, great idea and nice way to celebrate summer, thank you!
I received the recipe for strawberry mimosas today and, since ir is 86 degrees with very high humidity, I made myself ‘one’. Absolutely delicious substitute for a ‘regular’ mimosa. Thank you.
