AT-HOME MIMOSA BAR

Mimosa season has arrived! Since we’re not going out to brunch right now, here’s how you can build your own mimosa bar at home! Jazz it up with a few fun, unexpected twists: flower ice cubes, fruit peel cut-outs, berry skewers, unicorn sugar rims, and blood orange!

flower ice cubs

FLOWER ICE CUBES //

Click for full tutorial.

MATERIALS:

Large silicone ice molds (square shape)

Assorted flowers (large roses, baby sweetheart roses etc.)

STEPS:

Gently trim stems from your flowers.   

Fill ice mold with water, then gently place several small roses, or one large, in each slot and the roses will stick out of the water.  

Freeze until solid.

Decorate champagne bucketwith floral ice!  

FRUIT PEEL CUT OUTS //

MATERIALS:

Assorted citrus (lemon, orange, grapefruit)

Small cookie cutters

STEPS:

Cut citrus into quarters and remove the fruit from the peel.

Punch a cookie cutter into the white pith side (not the outer skin side) and use a knife to cut a small slit halfway through the shape so it can sit on the cocktail glass (similar to how a strawberry would!)

mimosa fruit skewer

FRUIT SKEWERS //

MATERIALS:

Assorted cocktail picks

Assorted fruit (blueberries, small strawberries, raspberries)

STEPS:

Trim skewers to be three inches long.  

Gently thread fruit onto each skewer.

Place a skewer on top of each glass.

Lime wedge

STEPS:

Place apple slicer onto a plate, filling each compartment with a different color of sugar.  Gently lift up apple slicer to reveal a color wheel.

Run a lime wedge around the edge of the glass and then dip into the sugar.

Don’t twist the glass!  Instead, use a spoon or knife to push the sugar around the edge and tap off any excess sugar.
