Orange Creamsicle Mimosa Recipe – refreshing and creamy cocktail that tastes just like a creamsicle! Quick and easy to make for your next party!
Mimosas are my favorite cocktails for Spring brunches and Summer parties. They are gorgeous, festive and absolutely delicious! Classic mimosa is a mix of champagne (or sparkling wine) and orange juice. I went a step further and turned it into a creamsicle cocktail by using heavy cream and sugar! It’s creamy, refreshing and delicious. Just like the frozen pops!
This Orange Creamsicle Mimosa is made with just 4 ingredients and is perfect for your next party or gathering! Decorate with slices of fresh orange for a festive touch and enjoy!
WHAT IS A MIMOSA?
Mimosa is a cocktail made with champagne or sparkling wine and a citrus juice. The ratio consists of equal parts of each ingredient. Both should be well chilled before mixing.
WHERE DOES THE NAME MIMOSA COME FROM?
Mimosa is believed to be invented by a bartender from Ritz Hotel in Paris, named Frank Meier. The name comes from a Mimosa flower, a yellow-orange type of shrub that was popular among French gardeners.
HOW TO MAKE ORANGE CREAMSICLE MIMOSA?
To turn the classic mimosa into a cocktail that tastes like the creamsicle, you will need heavy cream and sugar or sweetened or choice (maple syrup is not recommended). Stir all of the ingredients, except champagne, together to help the sugar dissolve. Divide among serving glasses (like champagne flutes) and top with the bubbly. Garnish with slices of fresh oranges for a festive flair and serve.

This mimosa can be made in a pitcher and served as needed. It is however the best when champagne is added to the orange juice mixture in the glass to make it bubbly.
You can use any sparkling wine in place of champagne.
