I made this for a brunch and everyone loved it. I used apricot nectar since I couldn't find apricot-mango, but followed the rest of the recipe. I like this recipe better than the traditional orange juice-champagne combination. I has more flavor. I used a cheap bottle of champagne ($5.99 a bottle) but no one noticed. I put a couple of fresh raspberries in the bottom of the glasses before adding the juice and champagne. It looked beautiful!
I thought it was just okay. I think it had too much juice. I think next time I will have more of the champagne and less of the juice.
I served this at a Mother's Day brunch. I used half a can of mango nectar & half a can of apricot nectar & I didn't add the champagne to the mix so that I could add ginger ale to the grandkids' glasses ( they thought they were IT, drinking out of champagne flutes. ;o) )....I added champagne to the grown-ups'. These were much better than the typical mimosa...thank you!
I have to say, I was a little hesitant in trying this because it didn't have any reviews yet, but I'm glad I did. I made it for my Bunco group, since the dinner theme was "Easter Brunch." I doubled the recipe for 12 women, and it was almost all gone! I used apricot nectar instead of apricot-mango (my mistake, but it was still good). I also made a frozen ring in a bundt pan out of strawberries, pineapple and oj. Be sure to stir the punch after you add the champage, so that the flavors meld. Everyone said it had a nice flavor and wasn't too strong.
Wow, I love mimosas and the additional juices were very complimentary. I changed the ratios slightly based on what I had though. I used a can of apricot juice, a can of mango juice, a can of pineapple juice, and about a cup and a half of orange juice. I then filled everyone's glasses halfway with champagne and filled the rest of the way with the juice concoction....delicious!
I quadrupled the recipe for all the juices and made in one pitcher, then let everyone add their own champagne. Float a few raspberries in the glass and this was a hit!!!!
this recipe went over wonderful at an outdoor bridal shower that I did. Everyone drank more of this than the lemonade or water. And the crowd was not a bunch of drinkers. I added a frozen strawberry ice ring to keep it cool and as it melted the strawberries were a nice addition to the drink.
This mimosa was the hit of my Mother's Day bash! I couldn't find the ingredients exactly, though, so mine was a little different. I used pineapple/mango juice, frozen oj, and champagne. I also made a frozen ring out of the pineapple/mango juice, cut up strawberries and kiwis. Everyone loved it!
