Best Blended Mimosa Slushie

A Blended Mimosa takes the dullness out of a delicious orange juice and champagne drink, simply by taking the classic combination and turning it into an icy treat with a refreshing bubbly boost.

This simple, straightforward recipe is as easy as blending frozen cubes of orange juice with chilled champagne or prosecco and serving it mimosa slushie-style in a fluted glass so that it has a fancy feel.

Frozen champagne drinks are the best form of fizzy fun that tastes light and refreshing and pair perfectly with your favorite brunch food (like my Pudding Fruit Salad or Cinnamon Swirl Donut Bread).

This sweet drink with orange juice and champagne is loaded with vitamin C; it’s like sipping a spiked daily supplement in every frosty flute.

Tips

  • It is best to enjoy the frozen mimosas right away.
  • If the mixture seems too liquidy, you can add a few extra (regular) ice cubes!
  • Your orange juice should be naturally sweetened with no sugar added.

Storage Tips

  • To Store: You can store leftover frozen mimosa mixture in the freezer for up to 1 month in a freezer-safe bag or ice cube trays. The mimosa will become less carbonated after storing.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I make my own fresh-squeezed orange juice?

Yes, you can squeeze the juice yourself! When juicing oranges, I like to use Navel, Clementine, or Blood oranges when they are in season.

Can I make my frozen mimosas in advance?

Yes, you can make a batch of frozen mimosas ahead of time and store it in the freezer. The alcohol will prevent it from freezing solid and have a more coarse texture but it will still taste delicious.
Make sure to pour the prepared drink into a freezer-safe container and freeze until ready to use.

What is the best Champagne for mimosas?

Some may argue that the best Champagne for mimosas isn’t actually Champagne! Instead, you can opt for less-expensive Cava or Prosecco.
Cava is from Spain and Prosecco is from Italy, but they’re both delicious dry sparkling wines that mix well with juice.
