Tropical Mimosa- Guava Cocktail Recipe

Champagne bottle with two guava cocktails.

I’m on a huge guava kick right now people, and this tropical mimosa combines champagne and guava into a delicious and refreshing guava cocktail recipe that can’t be beaten!

I pretty much think my favorite brunch can always be improved with a nice classic mimosa. Preferably bottomless. However, I was getting a bit tired of the same old, same old mimosa with orange juice.

And while there are lots of ways to make a mimosa “tropical”- (think adding pineapple juice, mango juice, or even a skinny mimosa with coconut water) I thought the addition of guava would be super fun.

Guava Cocktails In Costa Rica

I wanted a cocktail that would be a little different and a little more reminiscent of Costa Rica. Since the guava grows almost all year in Costa Rica, we use it for a ton of different recipes. Guava nectar (we call it jugo de guayaba) is popular during the summertime, and super easy to make when you have an excess of guavas.

Here in the States, I didn’t have an excess of guavas (although I can generally find fresh guavas in Walmart, which is random), I did have an excess of guava juice. I had purchased a huge container in Costco, and one night was wanting a fun adult beverage and decided to try mixing it with champagne. 

It’s refreshing, delicious and healthy (right? I mean fruit is healthy? Ok maybe not.) It is a light and fun sparkling cocktail, and thus the “Guava Bellini” was born. More on that next.

What’s the Difference Between A Bellini and a Mimosa?

So– I’ve been calling this a Tropical Bellini pretty much the entire time I’ve been making it. I just like the way it sounds! I stand corrected, however (as reflected in my post title). 

See, a Bellini uses Prosecco, which is pretty much my favorite sparkling wine. A Mimosa, on the other hand, uses champagne. So this is a Guava Mimosa- even though with a quick switch of wine you can just call it a Guava Bellini. 

Guava Mimosa Ice Cubes

So generally mimosas are the perfect cocktail to drink without ice. But- I like to sip mine slowly, and I love super cold drinks. So for this recipe, I tried out these super cool ice spheres. They are really for people drinking hard alcohol on the rocks, but they are also a fun addition to a cocktail because they melt really slowly, and they look super cook inside a cocktail glass.

Tropical Mimosa Recipe Modifications

Depending on how you like your cocktail, you could add some mango pineapple juice from Dole instead of the guava, or you could squeeze some lime juice on top. You could also make your own guava juice with Splenda to make this a skinny cocktail. 

Finally, you can serve this in a champagne flute and float some fresh fruit on top to make it a bit more festive- like to New Year’s Eve toasts and the like. For Cinco de Mayo I serve this in a cocktail glass with my favorite appetizers.
