Hawaiian Mimosas – this easy cocktail recipe has just three ingredients and will make you think you’re on a beach in paradise. Pineapple, Rum, and Champagne is all it takes to make this delicious cocktail! Make it for one or make it for a party in a pitcher – they’re easy to make either way!
My family and I have been lucky enough to go to Hawaii for the last two summers. The first year we went it was absolutely magical and exactly what we needed at the time: rest, relaxation, and the beach. We fell in love with the sand and the sun and the culture and the food and vowed to go back every year. (I’ve even continually looked at real estate in the hopes of buying a condo but I’m not a millionaire so….)
Last year our trip was just as fun, but different since it wasn’t all new. And right smack dab in the middle of our trip, my husband got a work call that changed our lives (long story short: a bunch of people got let go and the company culture started going downhill, and he eventually changed jobs). Because of his new job he doesn’t have very much vacation time so Hawaii has to wait for us…which I get and understand but as we get closer to June I am craving my spot at the pool watching Jordan swim while I drink mimosas.
Before our first trip to Hawaii, I’d never thought to use pineapple juice in a mimosa. In fact, I never really liked mimosas because I don’t love orange juice. Not worth the calories, I’d think, just gimme a big glass of champs….until I tried a PINEAPPLE Mimosa, that is.
You guys: pineapple mimosas are Life. Changing. Pineapple juice and prosecco have taken up permanent residence in my house since I first tried them. Plain old bubbles + pineapple is great but recently I got smart and added Malibu Rum.
There aren’t even any words.
The day I made these Hawaiian Mimosas (at 11am on a school day) it was all I could do not to chug the lot of them, they were that good. If Mel hadn’t been out of town I might have gone for it and made him pick Jordan up at school. (Darn kids, ruining my fun. 😉 )
These Hawaiian Mimosas have only three ingredients and EVERYONE loves them. I’m calling them a Hawaiian Mimosa because every sip reminds me of my favorite place: Kaanapali Beach at the Marriott Beach Club in Maui. I highly recommend going there, renting a cabana, and ordering tropical drinks all day long.
And since MIMOASAS are for breakfast, you have no reason not to start at 8am. You’re welcome.
Hawaiian Mimosas are the perfect cocktail to remind you of summer, full of pineapple and coconut and champagne!

I’ve been to Hawaii 2 times and loved it. I’ve never tired this drink, but it sounds delish, refreshing, and cold. I’m going to try it sometime. Thank you
How would you make a nonalcoholic version?
I would use sparkling cider, sprite or just sparkling water add the pineapple juice and cream of coconut.
Looks amazing and yummy! SoCal. may be celebrating Cinco de Mayo this weekend, but I’m having a Hawaiian Mimosa! Thanks for posting this.
I’ve never been to Hawaii (sad face). These look so pretty! Now I want to go to Hawaii too. 🙂
Start at 8 am? … hum… 🙂
On cinco de mayo, my wedding anniversary, heck yeah!
These stopped me in my tracks and I had to come by and say so 🙂
Nice! Next time you go to any beach, bring home a little zip bag full of sand. It would look great spread on the board around the drinks for your pics. 🙂
These look heavenly! Can’t wait to make these for Mothers Day. All of the recipes look good. I love Prosecco!
This look so delicious! Hope to visit Hawaii one day!

Sorry that you’re probably not heading back to Hawaii this summer 🙁 Sad.
At least you have some comfort in these mimosas. They look amazing and yes to pineapple juice!
