A refreshing and simple mimosa made with mixed berry simple syrup and prosecco or champagne. Garnish with a few berries and you've got yourself the perfect drink for summer!
Servings: 5 glasses
- 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!
*If making the simple syrup ahead of time, you can store in the fridge for 1-2 weeks.
