Strawberry Rhubarb Mimosas

It’s Friday. School is officially over. And, it’s my birthday! Today is just screaming for a celebratory cocktail.

I will fully admit I’m not a huge cocktail person – but mimosas? Mimosas are my jam.

Two stemless wine glasses are filled with a red, bubbly liquid. Strawberries, rhubarb, and bottles are in the background.

Made with homemade strawberry rhubarb simple syrup, this version is a perfectly seasonal treat. I couldn’t think of a better way to wrap up #BrunchWeek!

How to Make the Strawberry-Rhubarb Simple Syrup

Ingredients

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 3/4 cup diced rhubarb
  • 3/4 cup sliced strawberries

Instructions

  • In a small saucepan, combine the sugar and water and bring to a boil.
  • Remove from heat and stir in the rhubarb and strawberries.
  • Let cool to room temperature.
  • Strain the strawberry and rhubarb from the liquid and refrigerate until ready to use.

Yes, it’s really that easy!

I store my simple syrup in a glass jar in the refrigerator. This can be made up to a week ahead – I like to do it at least the day before to make sure that it’s really nice and cold when I’m ready to use it!

If cocktails aren’t your thing, the simple syrup is also great for desserts. Try it drizzled over angel food cake or vanilla ice cream!

How to Make Strawberry-Rhubarb Mimosas

Ingredients

  • 4 oz. dry champagne, like Brut
  • 1 oz. strawberry rhubarb simple syrup

Instructions

  • Fill a champagne flute 2/3 of the way full with dry champagne.
  • Top with strawberry rhubarb simple syrup.

I strongly recommend going with a dry sparkling wine for this recipe – even if dry isn’t your thing. The simple syrup is nice and sweet so it will balance the dryness! I like my drinks sweet and find this perfect. If the mimosa is still too dry for you, you can always add more of the strawberry-rhubarb syrup!

Want to make mimosas for a crowd?

Combine 1 bottle of dry champagne in a pitcher with 3/4 cup strawberry rhubarb simple syrup. Stir gently to combine, then serve!
