This easy to make 4 ingredient blood orange and pomegranate mimosa is so delicious and is ready in no time at all. There are so many variations of mimosas and this one happens to be our favourite. Our kids love it too, but I make theirs with sparkling soda rather than wine of course. They are still too young to be enjoying the alcoholic version.
- 1/2 cup of blood orange juice
- 1/4 cup pomegranate juice
- 2 cups sparkling white wine
- 2 tablespoons of pomegranate arils

Blood oranges are in season usually around the early part of the year. Which means they are around for Valentine’s day! The colour of the blood oranges – the red tinge – is perfect for a drink for the special day.
Let’s get juicing. How much juice you get out of each blood orange depends on how juicy each one is. Some can be quite juicy, while others are more pulpy than juicy. Once I have the oranges juiced, I like to run the juice through a sieve to get rid of any small seeds and pulp. Mimosas tend to taste better without the pulp, but it all depends on individual choice of course. Once you had your juice ready, refrigerate for 2 hours or so.
Let’s get mixing. Making mimosas is so simple anyone can do it:
- Add 1/2 cup of blood orange to a mixing jug.
- Add 1/4 cup of pomegranate juice to it as well.
- Using a spoon mix the two juices together.
- Add about 1/4 cup of the mixed juice into a glass and pour about 1 cup of sparkling wine into it.
- Add a tablespoon of pomegranate arils to the glass.
- Garnish with a sprig of mint and a slice of the blood orange and enjoy.
Here are some suggestions for variations that I have:
- I prefer not to consume alcohol, but I love mimosas, so I use non-alcoholic bubbly wine for mine.
- Make it kid friendly by using bubbly sweetened sparkling water or sparkling soda such as Sprite.
- Tyr it with tangerines in place of blood oranges. Tangerines are a lot juicier and a lot sweeter than blood oranges, so you will need less of them.
Mimosas are best enjoyed cold. So, I recommend that you refrigerate your juices and sparkling wine for a couple of hours to overnight. Here are some of my suggestions for enjoying alongside mimosas :
- I love to serve mine with my savoury french toast.
- or with my Mediterranean breakfast toast.
- my favourite is serving it with my Kenyan rice and coconut pancakes.
