Pineapple Mimosas: the perfect brunch cocktail for Summer! We can’t think of anything better than warm sunshine, delicious brunch & a bubbly mimosa in hand.
THE brunch cocktail of the Summer 👆
This recipe takes the classic mimosa and adds a tropical twist. The orange juice + champagne combination stays intact, and you add pineapple and coconut goodness.
We love this particular mimosa recipe because it’s easy, and we can pretend we are relaxing on a beach somewhere. This mimosa is also known as a tropical, pineapple paradise, or Hawaiian mimosa.
Serve these pineapple mimosas…
- …for a summertime brunch.
- …at a tropical-themed bridal shower.
- …at a baby shower & make it a mom-mosa with sparkling instead of champagne.
- …to celebrate a brand new baby’s arrival at a sip and see.
- …or just because you are in the mood for a breakfast or brunch cocktail!
How to Make a Pineapple Mimosa
All you need is a few ingredients and supplies, and we’ll show you how it’s done.
- Cream of coconut
- Orange juice
- Pineapple juice
- Champagne or sparkling wine
- Pineapple chunks or other garnishes
You can find the cream of coconut in the cocktail mixer section at your local grocery store. Or you can substitute your favorite coconut products. Coconut milk or coconut rum, for example. It’s meant to add just a little ‘island’ flavor.
Need a champagne recommendation? Our favorite is a California Brut. Visit the faqs at the bottom of this post for more info.
Here are a few supply recommendations to make pineapple mimosas easy and beautiful.
Have you tried a pineapple corer? They are the best tool to core and slice pineapple at the same time. And if done just right and you leave the bottom of the pineapple intact, you can drink your cocktail right out of the pineapple.
Recipe Instructions + Tips
Grab your champagne glass and fill the bottom with cream of coconut. Next, add one part orange juice and one part pineapple juice. Then give it a good stir.
Top with 2 parts champagne. The top of the glass will be a good mixture of bubbly from the champagne and a bit frothy from the coconut cream. So good!
The best part about mimosas is that you can switch up the juice and champagne mixture to your liking. For example, you might be all about 90% bubbly and 10% juice, while I prefer a 50/50 blend myself.
Make a Pineapple Mimosa Punch
Make this recipe into pineapple mimosa punch simply by using a punch bowl and following the same formula. (Cream of coconut to taste, 1 part orange juice, 1 part pineapple juice, and 2 parts champagne.) Then add chunks of pineapple, oranges, and even edible flowers to the punch bowl for a beautiful punch that is perfect for a Summer brunch or bridal shower.

Common Questions About Making Pineapple Mimosas
How many calories in pineapple mimosa?
Most mimosa recipes are 150 to 200 calories per 8-ounce serving. Pineapple mimosas will vary depending on the exact brands and ingredients used, but this recipe is around 210 calories per 8-ounce glass.
What is the best pineapple juice to use?
We are partial to Dole 100% pineapple juice for any drink or cocktail recipe. It comes in a can and stores easily in the pantry until you are ready to use it.
How do you make mimosas in a pitcher?
This pineapple mimosa recipe is easy to make into a pitcher of mimosas. Just cover the bottom of your pitcher with coconut cream and then add 1 part orange juice, 1 part pineapple juice. Mix well, and then add the remaining 2 parts champagne.
What is the best champagne for mimosas?
We prefer to use a California Brut champagne, like Cook’s or Korbel. Something we can easily find at the grocery store and in the $10 to $15 price range. You can also do a Cava or Prosecco if you prefer.
The best advice I can give – use a type of champagne or sparkling wine you like to drink plain. If you don’t like the taste of Prosecco by itself (guilty!), then chances are you won’t like it in a mimosa.
What is the best alcohol for mimosas?
You can easily add alcohol/liquor to this mimosa recipe. For example, a coconut-flavored rum, like Malibu, would work perfectly.
