Daddy O’s Blushing Mimosa

Daddy O’s Blushing Mimosa has become a regular at our family celebrations. He last treated us to them at Easter and I finally pinned him down on the recipe and, as usual, he included a bunch of helpful notes.

Blushing Mimosas

  • 1 oz Orange Juice
  • 1 oz Pineapple Juice
  • 1/2 oz Grenadine
  • 4 oz Sparkling Wine or Champagne
  • Fruit to garnish (oranges, cherries, strawberries and/or raspberries)

Combine first three ingredients in a champagne glass and stir. Top off with champagne. Garnish.

Mimosas for a Crowd

We mix a “batch” in a nice pitcher. 1 to 2 Cups OJ, 1 to 2 Cups PJ, 1/2 to 1 Cup Grenadine.When ready to serve, pour 2-1/2 oz (or as much/little as desired) “mix”  in  glass and add 4oz Prosecco. We make the “mix” ahead of time and chill well before serving. NO ICE!


To slice, cut a whole orange in slices across orange, starting at the stem end. Discard very end slices. Stack slices and then cut in half. Makes for a nice garnish. Also, garnish with a couple of cherries, strawberries, or raspberries. I like to thread them together on a cocktail pick.

Favorite Brands

  •      BarSmith Grenadine (Publix)
  •      Lamarca Prosecco (Publix)
  •      Lakewood Pineapple Juice, Organic, Not From Concentrate (Publix)
  •      Orange Juice, Not From Concentrate (Publix, Organic/Not Organic, Any Brand, Including Publix)
  •           We really like Fresh Market’s Fresh Squeezed OJ, but it is EXPENSIVE and not easy for us to get to Fresh Market

I hope y’all enjoy these as much as we do. Cheers!

  1. Sounds like a great choice for a signature bride’s wedding cocktail. Our grandaughter is getting married in October and this would be lovely. I’ve sent her your info. Thanks for sharing.
