This mimosa recipe is our favorite for two reasons.
One: We LOVE our stemless champagne flutes!
Two: The combination of the grapefruit color, mint, and floral garnish is screaming, "Serve me at your next event!".
The floral garnish trend has really taken off, and we can't think of a better place for it to make an appearance at your event than in these mimosas! The edible flowers we used are dianthus, which we chose for their dainty petals and pop of vibrant color. Dianthus has a sweet and spicy scent, with a flavor similar to cloves. We didn't eat the flowers, we just used them for a garnish. If you do try edible flowers, be sure to use organic flowers that have not been sprayed with pesticides.
Add edible flowers to your cocktails for the sweetest spring and summer trend!
What you need:
- 1 bottle of champagne

Stemless champagne flutes are 9 oz. versus standard champagne flutes that are 5 oz. If you are using stemless flutes like we did, this recipe will make six mimosas.
