Ciroc Vodka (the vodka brand that Sean "Diddy" Combs works with) added pineapple to their growing list of flavor infusions a few years back. It's a fantastic premium offering that has the natural taste of pineapples captured inside the clean-tasting vodka.
The pineapple mimosa recipe is a great way to enjoy the latest offering and it is a simple twist on the popular mimosa. This drink not only brings in the fruit vodka but adds lemon and honey syrup to the orange juice and sparkling wine mix. I think you will find that this is a refreshing change and it works very well, bringing depth into an already fantastic cocktail.
Serve this one up for brunch or anytime you need a great (and simple) sparkling wine cocktail to impress a few guests.
Garnish with the orange peel.
Make It a Pitcher
You can make serving this pineapple mimosa at brunch just a little easier if you make it by the pitcher. The single-drink recipe is very easy to adapt to any size you want to mix up, making it ideal for parties.
For instance, we can simply do a little math to fill the average drink pitcher, which is around 60 ounces. Begin by pouring 20 ounces (2 1/2 cups) of the vodka and 10 ounces (1 1/4 cups) of each of the other ingredients, including the Prosecco. Add ice to the pitcher to keep it nice and cold.
Adding a little more sparkling wine to the pitcher than you would for a single drink will help keep the sparkle longer. The drink will be sitting out in the pitcher and the ice will dilute it a bit, so it's good to add more carbonation from the beginning.
As with any sparkling wine punch, add the wine just before serving the mimosa. It will ensure your guests get to fully enjoy the bubbles.
When making this conversion, it would be best to add the honey syrup to taste. Do this by combining the vodka and juices, then a 1/4 cup of the syrup at a time. Mix it together and give it a taste test until it hits your desired sweetness.
