Toast someone special with lychee rose mimosas! This mimosa champagne cocktail is perfect for celebrating, and made with sparkling rose wine, sweet lychee syrup and rosewater.
When the kids and I are looking to celebrate some quality mama-kid time together, one of our favorite places to go for lunch serves fizzy non-alcoholic mojitos that they adore. And I don’t blame them! What’s more festive than a bubbly drink?
We’ve tried them all, and the hands down favorite – for all of us – is their signature drink with lychee and rose. Sweet bits of fresh lychee swirl in the bubbles with a hint of fragrant rosewater – it’s the perfect drink to toast any special occasion, big or small!
Now, it happens to be Valentine’s Day today, so my thoughts naturally turn to sparkling wine and a classic mimosa. Which, by the way, has me wondering — why don’t we drink more mimosas at night? I think we need to break the mimosas are only for brunch barrier, don’t you? Anyway, I have been obsessed with making Lychee Rose Mimosas for the more grown-up celebrations!
Made with sparkling rose (because who can resist a pink drink!?) this mimosa uses sweet lychee syrup and a touch of rosewater for an elegant, toast-worthy drink! Whether you’re celebrating Valentine’s, Galentine’s, Mother’s Day, Easter, or anything at all — toast someone special with a Lychee Rose Mimosa! It’s the best way to turn an ordinary day into something special.
(Oh, and in case you were wondering about the kids — well, you should know that it works just as well with pink lemonade! For the kids, that’s worth toasting!)
