Rainbow Mimosas with Fresh Fruit

Let this updated classic – bursting with bright, fresh fruit – wash over you and refresh at your next weekend brunch.

The legendary mimosa cocktail is believed to have originated in the 1920s at the Hôtel Ritz in Paris, created by bartender Frank Meier. Named after the yellow-flowered mimosa plant, the cocktail quickly gained popularity for its light and refreshing taste. Traditionally made with equal parts champagne and chilled citrus juice, the mimosa has become a staple at brunches and celebrations around the world. But I think it’s time to give it a gentle upgrade.

Enter The Rainbow Mimosa.

This rainbow mimosa is the perfect celebratory drink for a weekend brunch. It’s fresh and new and full of vibrant color that perfectly reflects the joy and relief so many are feeling as the weekend begins. It’s respectful of the origins of the mimosa, but at the same time – clearly a step up!
