Berry Mimosas – A refreshing and simple mimosa made with mixed berry simple syrup and prosecco or champagne that you can enjoy during brunch. Garnish with a few berries and you’ve got yourself the perfect drink for spring or summer!
Another holiday, another gorge-fest. I am still full from all the incredible food I ate yesterday! We had a simple, yet satisfying day with my husband’s family, full of the best burgers and hot dogs that I’ve had in a while, amazing potato salad, and, my favorite, baked beans. This is what I call comfort food.
I made this carrot cake from Sally’s Baking Addiction and it was a huge hit. Believe it or not, it was my first-ever carrot cake. I was how shocked at how great it turned out! Super moist and dense and wonderful. What amazing things did you enjoy yesterday?! I want to hear all about it!
Okay so now for today’s recipe. I realized that I hadn’t shared a drink recipe since these killer cranberry lime mojitos. That was four months ago! Shame on me. I have definitely been making drinks at home since then so I apologize for keeping them from you.
So today I am finally sharing my latest and greatest cocktail: berry mimosas! Triple berry mimosas, to be exact.
As I am sure you know, the classic mimosa is a cocktail made with champagne and a few splashes of fresh orange juice. For this triple berry mimosa version, I didn’t want to use fresh berry juice because pureed or juiced berries can get a little too pulpy for me and have a ton of seeds. The alternative to fresh berry juice would be to purchase a berry-flavored fruit juice with artificial flavors and that wasn’t happening. What’s refreshing and vibrant about artificial flavors?!
So instead of using a berry juice for this mimosa, I decided to make a triple berry simple syrup made with fresh berries that have been cooked in equal parts of water and sugar. You still get all the flavor of the fresh berries but without all the messy pulp and seeds. But don’t worry – I still garnish the drink with fresh berries to give you that bite that you crave at the end. What’s better than booze-soaked fruit?! Very little.
The simple syrup worked like a charm! So much delicious and sweet berry flavor with the perfect amount of sparkle from the champagne. Simply delicious. And with all the berries in season right now, it’s the best drink for your brunches all spring and summer long.
There’s really not a whole lot to this cocktail. All you’ll need is fresh berries, a bottle of champagne, some sugar, and that’s it! But before you get started, here are a few tips to consider:
- After the simple syrup is cooked, you must strain the mixture to remove all the pulp and seeds. Don’t skip this step! I even did it twice to ensure that all of the seeds were out.
- The simple syrup recipe makes enough for about 10 mimosas. If you plan to use it all at once, make sure to buy 2 bottles of champagne or prosecco. If not, you can save it for later. Good luck trying to control yourself.
And that’s it! I tried to think of more helpful info for this recipe but I just couldn’t think of anything else – this recipe really is that simple! So go ahead…try it out!

- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup water
- 1/2 cup raspberries (fresh or frozen)
- 1/2 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)
- 1/2 cup blackberries (fresh or frozen)
- 1 bottle champagne or prosecco
- extra fresh berries for garnish
- Mix the sugar, water, and 1 1/2 cups of berries in a medium pot. Bring mixture to a boil on medium-high heat. Once boiling, reduce heat to medium-low and let it simmer for 20 minutes.
- Once 20 minutes is up, remove from heat and push through mesh strainer. I did it twice to make sure all the seeds were removed. Let it cool to room temperature before using*.
- Add 2 tablespoons of syrup to a champagne glass. Fill with prosecco or champagne, leaving about 1 inch of room at the top. Garnish with your favorite berries. Note: the syrup recipe makes about 1.5 cups of syrup, which is enough for 10-12 mimosas. So buy another bottle if you want to use it all up in one day!

These are so pretty, and they sound so delicious. Berry drinks are some of my favorite. They are light and fruity without being overly boozy. I’ve never considered cooking berries in a simple syrup. That’s an awesome idea!!

Wow, this sounds AMAZING. I love the idea of using a simple syrup rather than fresh juice- such a fun twist on a mimosa! I definitely need to give this a try soon.
