Why You’ll Love This Blood Orange Mimosa

This mimosa recipe is not like your typical mimosa cocktail. It’s even better. This mimosa not only uses sweet blood orange juice, but we’re also kicking it up with tequila.

You could swap out regular orange juice for the blood orange juice if you can’t find any, but I grabbed this blood orange juice right in my regular grocery store! Or if you can find blood oranges grab them and squeeze a few.

How To Make A Blood Orange Mimosa

Once you have all the necessary ingredients, making this drink couldn’t be easier. Just pour the blood orange juice in the bottom of a champagne flute, or high ball glasses if you prefer.


Pour in the tequila and then top with champagne or prosecco. I know a lot of people substitute prosecco in drinks like this (including me) and that’s totally fine.

My preference for this cocktail is to use actual champagne. Champagne isn’t typically as sweet as prosecco and I think it works better for this cocktail since we already have the sweet blood orange juice.



Like we mentioned before, if you can’t find blood orange juice you can use regular orange juice. Fresh orange juice is best, otherwise purchase the best quality that you can get.

A splash of cranberry juice combined with orange juice will also give you a “blood orange juice” feel.

If tequila isn’t your favorite, you can add vodka or rum instead. Or leave it out and just use champagne for a more traditional mimosa feel.
