Hello! My name is Chelsey and I am rebelling against winter.

It’s not just that I’m sick of cold weather. Zach and I bought a house last month! And we have a yard! And a patio! So I keep dreaming of sitting out on the porch in the summer with a nice mimosa and relaxing. Which means this cold weather needs to end.

Since I prefer to be a do-er than a dreamer, I said, good-bye to winter and decided to just make some sunny, citrus-y mimosas anyway.

This is my rebellion. It’s pathetic, but it’s mine.

Let’s talk about the mimosas!

Lemon Mint Pineapple Mimosa Drink Recipe


Like many of you, when I start getting that spring-time itch, what I want most is lemon. Probably because it’s so refreshing and bright. Regardless of the reason, I knew my mimosas would be centered around lemons.

I’m going to be honest here–I came up with this in the middle of the grocery store at the last minute. Because I walked by the mint and thought, “Mint goes so well with lemon!” Then all I needed was one more thing…to make it less bitter. But I wanted to maintain that yellow and green color, so pineapple it was! It was also a great snack while I mixed the rest of the ingredients. Nom.


For the wine, I decided to go with Cupcake’s Angel Food…mostly because I was dying to know what it tasted like. 😛 It was really good! But if I did this again, I would use Cupcake’s Moscato. While I thought the mimosas were pretty well perfect, Zach thought they were a tad bitter (he’s not the biggest fan of lemon). I wound up adding more Sprite to his. But Cupcake makes a REALLY sweet Moscato (and it’s soooo good). I think that would balance out the bitterness nicely.

As far as a light drink that makes you think warm weather might really be just around the corner…boy, does this deliver. I let mine sit for 30 minutes, initially. If you let it sit longer (I’d give it at least an hour or two), the mint becomes stronger and makes this drink so refreshing.

Feeling more adventurous? Beermosas are my absolutely FAVORITE mixed drink. Camille has peach beermosas. You can find strawberry beermosas, apple beermosas, and cranberry beermosas on my own blog.

Also, do me a favor and check out the post I wrote for St. Patrick’s Day last year–Irish Carbomb Cupcakes. My husband’s co-workers said they were the best cupcakes they had EVER had. And they don’t get nearly enough love.
