Just one taste and you'll understand why this is truly the best lavender mimosa recipe. Let's get into the juicy details!
What does it taste like?
This is the perfect floral mimosa recipe for spring because it tastes like cool, calming lavender. Of course, you'll also taste tart and juicy orange notes, and the familiar crisp effervescence of the champagne. It's also sweet.
What You'll Need for this Recipe
Orange Juice from fresh squeezed oranges is the best option here and I recommend Cara Cara oranges for their delicate, sweet flavor. But you can just as easily use your favorite brand of OJ from the store or juice another orange variety.
Champagne or the sparkling wine of your choice like Prosecco or Cava to add the bubbles. If you want to make this a zero proof mimosa, add sparkling mineral water instead.

Tips & Tools
What bar equipment do I need to make a mimosa? Grab a jigger to measure the liquid ingredients. You'll also need a bar spoon to mix everything up. If you don't have either of these, a shot glass is a good substitute for the jigger and you can mix your mimosa using a butter knife and a gentle hand.
Can I make this mimosa ahead of time? Kind of. You can combine the lavender simple syrup and orange juice in advance for a quicker experience later. I recommend reserving the champagne until just before serving, though, so that it doesn't go flat.
How to Make Mimosas with Lavender
Start by adding the lavender simple syrup to a champagne flute. Then pour in the orange juice. Notice how the syrup stays at the bottom.
Next top up the glass with chilled champagne. There's still some separation between each of the ingredients.
So stir the mimosa ingredients gently to combine everything. Then serve!
How to Serve
Serve lavender mimosas in champagne flutes and garnish with a sprinkle of dried lavender buds, if you like.
How to serve these mimosas to a group? You'll need ¾ cup simple syrup, two cups orange juice, and one bottle of champagne to serve up to eight people. Then there are two great options, depending on your preference and presentation.
For the first option, you can combine all the ingredients in a pitcher or beverage dispenser. This is the more hands-off method. Or you can mix up the OJ and syrup in one bottle and set it out with the bottle of champagne. Either option allows for self service.
