Raspberry Mimosa cocktail

Raspberry Mimosa cocktail, how to make it perfect at home. The mimosa is a cocktail made up of one part champagne (or cava) and one part orange juice. It is considered a soft and refreshing drink, made for all palates. In this type of variation we change the orange for the raspberry to give a more original touch.

The mimosa originated centuries ago in the Mediterranean area, where orange and sparkling wines are typical. We refer mainly to Valencia, Castellón, Alicante or Catalonia. Like the must, it is a combination of sparkling wine and one with juices of grapes, oranges, apples and any fruit that we can imagine. The name comes from the flowers of the mimosa plant, which are yellowish in color and grainy. Not much else is known about the origin.

It is a simple drink to prepare. You can make it with both frozen and natural raspberries. The really important thing is that the champagne (or cava) that you are going to use is very cold. We will first blend the raspberries and strain them, to remove the seeds, and thus obtain a completely clean juice. We will use a piccolo type glass, the same one with which we serve cava or champagne.

How to make the raspberry mimosa

Defrost the raspberries over medium heat and then blend and strain, leaving the juice. We will proceed to pour it directly into our previously cooled piccolo glass.
