Sure, mimosas are great, but have you tried upgrading them so that they include stronger booze and look like a beautiful summer sunrise in a glass?
Mimosas are a brunch staple and are inexpensive to whip up, which is part of the reason we love them so much. But as Chungah points out on her blog Damn Delicious, where we spotted this recipe, it’s not difficult to take them a step further, which is how she ended up creating this vibrant, layered cocktail topped with fresh slices of bright citrus fruit.
Find the full instructions for Tequila Sunrise Mimosas here on Damn Delicious.
Delish posted a video on Facebook with instructions for blending up each layer of this drink. The beverage brings together the summery flavors of strawberry, pineapple and peach — plus rum for supplying those beachy vibes.
Meanwhile, if you started your day with a tequila sunrise mimosa and wish to end it with a sunset-in-a-glass, a layered strawberry-mango margarita is the way to go.
This cocktail recipe from Eating Well calls for layers of frozen mango and strawberry — plus simple syrup — to complement the typical margarita ingredients of tequila, triple sec and fresh lime juice.
Finally, as a no-work-required option for a layered and refreshing frozen sip, find your nearest Sonic and check out the fast-food chain’s red, white and blue slush float, featuring layers of red and blue slush and vanilla ice cream.
These drinks from Sonic are non-alcoholic, but you can always change that by adding a splash of your spirit of choice. Cheers!
