With the summer season upon us, our weekends are - for the most part - dedicated to parties and celebratory functions of all sorts - think showers, weddings, birthdays, pool parties and more. If you find yourself playing hostess to any such occasion, you really only need one thing - a DIY mimosa bar. Think simple, festive, and most importantly - impressive.
What You’ll Need
Options, Options, Options
It’s all about having a variety. Spice up your mimosa bar and give your guests multiple flavor options to choose from. Gather a variety of juices - orange, raspberry lemonade, blackberry, grapefruit, whatever suits your fancy. Complement your juices with several generous bowls of seasonal fruits of your choice. Mixed berries, lemons, grapefruit, and strawberries are always a great idea, but do keep in mind the season.
Consider the Flavors
For those of your guests who prefer mimosas on the sweeter side, offer a sweet Prosecco and pair it with a tart fruit juice and top it off with fresh strawberries or blueberries. For guests who’s palates prefer something less sweet, offer a dry sparkling wine. They can pair it with a little splash of orange juice. Or grapefruit juice paired with a dry champagne for more a bitter flavor profile. Top it off with a sprig of rosemary, because a little garnish always makes things more fun. Don’t shy away from offering a surplus of options! After all - that’s what DIY is all about.
