Notes

  • Since we don’t use ice for this drink, make sure your ingredients are all VERY cold!  
  • Freezing your cranberries is a great way to give them double duty as garnish and ice.
  • If you are using fresh squeezed orange juice, consider passing it through a mesh strainer to avoid pulp in the mimosa.
  • For a crowd, double, triple, quadruple, etc the recipe!
  • Feel free to play around with flavors using more/less cranberry juice depending on your own taste.

    Love Mimosas & love cranberry, so this is a must for a summer break with friends. Could this be made by the pitcher full? Thank you.

      Hi Tess, yes, you can make by the pitcherfull. Just increase the amount of ingredients based on the number of drinks your pitcher holds.
