Brunch Essential: The Mimosa Bar

While it may feel too early for a glass of red at brunch, Prosecco is always an easy go-to. Who else feels like dancing after their first glass of Prosecco?! Guilty! Here at Danzante we make our Prosecco to be fruity, extra dry and with persistent effervescence. Lasting perlage is ideal for ensuring the bubbles last throughout your meal or conversation. 

The beauty of a mimosa bar is how simple and easy it is to put together, not to mention how much fun it can be to create your own signature mimosas!

The Setup:  A table or open counter is the perfect spot for your mimosa bar. You will want a space that is easy to access and allows for multiple people to mingle as they build their mimosas.

The Wine: Save yourself some time by chilling your bottles of Danzante Prosecco ahead of time in the fridge. For your bar, fill a large bow or bucket with ice and set out the wine right before your guests arrive. 

The Juices: We recommend offering 3-4 different types of juices for your guests to enjoy. Fill carafes or pitchers with each juice, clearly marked with a fun tag.  We recommend:

- Orange juice
- Grapefruit juice
- Lemonade
- Pomegranate juice
- Peach nectar or purée
- Pineapple juice
-Mango juice or purée

The Fruit: Set out medium sized bowls or ramekins and fill with different types of fruit that complement the juices:

- Fun favorites: strawberries, diced peaches, raspberries, orange slices, and blueberries
- A new twist: pomegranate seeds, rosemary sprigs, pineapple wedges, kiwi slices, blackberries

The Tips: The best part of the mimosa bar is that it encourages your guests to play around with different combinations.  Help your friends along by setting out recipe cards for them to be inspired by. Be sure to check out our delicious mimosa cocktail recipes listed below!
