Talk about Insta-worthy! Your guests will be snapping pics left and right. But it’s not all looks, folks.

Ingredients In The Blackberry Mimosa Recipe

  • 1 cup fresh blackberries (plus more for garnish)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 bottle (750ml) chilled champagne or sparkling wine
  • Fresh mint sprigs for garnish (optional, but they add a cute fresh touch)

Equipment

  • Small saucepan
  • Muddler or fork
  • Pitcher or large liquid measuring cup
  • Mesh strainer
  • Champagne flutes or wine glasses

How to Make It

  1. Let’s start with that blackberry syrup. Toss the blackberries, sugar, and water into a saucepan and bring it to a simmer. Keep an eye on it and give it a stir every now and then until that sugar dissolves and the berries get all juicy and start to break down, about 5-7 minutes.
  2. Now for a little muddling action. Take that muddler (or a fork works too) and gently mash up those berries to release all those gorgeous juices and get them even more saucy.
  3. Strain that purple goodness through a fine mesh sieve into a bowl or liquid measuring cup. Use a spoon to really squeeze out as much juice as you can from those berry solids. You can toss the solids once you’ve gotten all the liquid gold.
  4. Let that syrup cool off completely, then pour it into a pitcher along with the chilled champagne. Give it a gentle stir to combine all that fruity, bubbly goodness.
  5. Time to serve it up! Divide that beautiful purple mimosa between your champagne flutes or wine glasses. Garnish each one with a few fresh blackberries and a sprig of mint if you’re feeling extra fancy.

What to Serve With It

This Blackberry Mimosa recipe is a total team player at brunch. It’ll happily cozy up to savory dishes like a cheesy quiche, a loaded frittata or some smashed avocado toast topped with all the goodies.

But it also loves to get in on the sweet action – think a stack of fluffy waffles, mini buns dripping with syrup or a short stack of pancakes. Just be warned, it might upstage the food with its gorgeous deep purple hue! For a real brunch extravaganza, set out a few sweet and savory options to mix and match with your mimosa.

Additional Tips

  • For an extra blackberry punch, muddle a few fresh berries right in your glass before pouring in the mimosa.
  • If you like things on the sweeter side, add a dash more of that blackberry syrup to taste. Start with just a splash and adjust from there.
  • The syrup can be made a day or two ahead so it’s ready to go on brunch day! Just let it cool completely before covering and refrigerating.
  • Use a drier brut or extra dry champagne or sparkling wine to balance out the sweetness of the blackberry syrup.
  • For a booze-free option, substitute the champagne for sparkling white grape juice!
