Brunch cocktail: Pineapple mimosa

Brunch cocktail: Pineapple mimosa

The mimosa… the brunch cocktail that made it socially acceptable to drink at 10:30am.

If you’re getting bored of the standard OJ + champagne brunch cocktail, try pineapple juice instead.

But first, a pineapple mimosa quote…

The easy way to make a pineapple mimosa

To make a pineapple mimosa, use a 1:1 ratio of pineapple juice to bubbly. Serve in Champagne glasses and garnish with strawberries.


What type of Champagne?

Any kind! You don’t have to buy a bottle with the label “Champagne”. Only wines from Champagne, France carry the label “Champagne”. 

Choose any sparkling wine. It should have a cork and a wire cage. 

Find mini champagne bottles 

Instead of buying big bottles of Champagne, look for packs of mini bottles. They come in 3 or 4 to a pack. One mini is perfect for two mimosas.

A stock of mini bottles makes your fridge look classy. Plus, then they are on hand for “emergencies”. (like rainy Saturday mornings) 

What type of pineapple juice?

Freshly squeezed pineapple juice isn’t widely available. Instead, find pineapple juice in cans or near the OJ bottles.

Cocktail recipe: Try the Dark and Stormy from Bermuda

Cocktail recipe: Try the Dark and Stormy from Bermuda

It’s the most popular cocktail from Bermuda! Channel “island time”  with the traditional and easy dark and stormy drink recipe. All you need are these ingredients: Gosling’s dark rum, ginger beer, and lime.


The secret to mixing a Dark and Stormy is to add the rum at the end, on top of the ginger beer. 

The name “dark and stormy” speaks to the look of the cocktail when the dark rum gets poured on top of the ginger beer. It looks like dark and stormy clouds.

Don’t mix too much before serving. You don’t want it to lose the stormy appeal. 


Fake dark and stormy cocktails…

Goslings Rum, a distillery based in Bermuda, trademarked the dark and stormy drink name. Any cocktail served under this name must use Gosling’s Dark Rum to be considered authentic. 

Don’t have Gosling’s available? No worries, mon!

After very strenuous rum research, substituting another dark rum will do the trick.
