My favorite part of brunch: mimosas! I’m feeling like I want to be on a beach right now, so I’m making Rum Punch Mimosas for my next party.
This champagne cocktail has rum, pineapple juice, grenadine and champagne, so it’s like drinking the tropics, right in your living room.
If you want to learn how to make a mimosa that will transport you to the beach, then this is the one for you! It marries two of my favorite cocktails: mimosas and rum punch!
In all honesty, drinking mimosas in the morning make me want to go back to bed (and right now…who cares, haha) but I love mimosas with dinner…or as dessert. Basically I just need a reason to drink champagne.

What is a Rum Punch Mimosa?
Basically, I took two drinks and combined them into one.
Rum Punch is traditionally made with a few kinds of rum, pineapple juice, and a splash of grenadine for color.
Mimosas are juice with champagne or Prosecco.
A Rum Punch Mimosa is BOTH!
Best Rum for Rum Punch
You can use any rum flavors you want, really. Traditionally, I think rum punch uses light and gold rum, but my combination here has:
- Light Rum
- Gold Rum
- Coconut Rum
I love the flavor of coconut rum – it really takes me to the tropics!
Along with the rum, I added pineapple juice and a bit of grenadine (you could also use maraschino cherry juice).
Mix the rum and juices together and set it out on your mimosa bar. Then just mix an ounce or two with champagne.
How much juice do you like in your mimosas? My ratio is usually 99% Prosecco and 1% juice, ha!
This recipe is written for about one bottle of champagne, but it really depends on how much juice to bubbles ratio people want. You may use more champagne or less, depending on that.
Have an extra bottle of champagne, just in case you have juice left over!PRO TIP
And believe me, I am a pro, haha!
Make a Mom-Osa Bar
This punch is great for Easter or Mother’s Day or any day you feel like you want a bit of champagne. I love making the mixture and storing it in the refrigerator for a rainy day.
You could also make a mimosa bar for any party by putting out a bunch of juices and flavors so people can mix their own.
