In September 2014, Ciroc Vodka (the vodka brand that Sean "Diddy" Combs works with) added pineapple to their growing list of flavor infusions. 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.
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.
