The Melon Mimosa is basically – you guessed it – a Mimosa with Midori instead of orange juice. That means there are no mixers in this one, unlike the Mimosa.
The combination of melon and champagne flavors works well, particularly in my opinion with a champagne that’s on the dry side, since you get plenty of sweetness from the Midori. The melon is very dominant in this drink, so if you don’t love Midori you may want to give this one a pass. The champagne livens up the mellow sweetness in the Midori, brightening the whole flavor.
- 2 ounces Midori
- 4 ounces chilled champagne
Pour together in a champagne flute.
