Blueberry Mimosa

Blueberry Mimosa

A refreshing take on a cocktail classic, the Blueberry Mimosa adds a boost of blue to any breakfast or brunch occasion. First, you mix up a batch of Blueberry Maple Syrup to capture that sweet-tart blueberry flavor. Simply add to your glasses, top with champagne and garnish with fresh blueberries! (Substitute sparkling cider, lemon soda or soda water to create a mocktail moment.) It’s so pretty you almost won’t want to drink it. Almost.
