Champagne is one of my perennial go-to cocktails. Served simply, always in a flute, nice and chilly cold. That should be a good enough segue to explain that my love for a good mimosa recipe runs deep. Real deep.

With Easter coming up in just a couple weeks, I wanted to put a spin on the classic brunch staple that would really wow your guests. For the record, this would also make the perfect mimosa recipe for a casual weekend brunch served up while wearing your favorite pajamas.

This tequila sunrise mimosa is one part tequila, one part champagne and one part orange juice with a nice splash of grenadine to give it that insanely beautiful color. Garnish with fresh orange and you’ve got the kind of brunch cocktail that your friends will go crazy over. Cheers!

Of course I like to gussy things up with a sweet little orange wedge. I can never leave a cocktail well enough alone, am I right? Bring on all the cute garnishes!
