Keto Italian Strawberry Mimosa will become your “go-to” Sunday Brunch drink! It seems like brunch restaurants are offering “bottom-less” Mimosas everywhere on Sundays. Yes, it is usually cheap dry champagne, and a dash of bar orange juice. But, it brings in the patrons, and adds that festive touch to their delicious Sunday breakfast brunch menu. Our Mimosa recipe offers an Italian flair with a strawberry twist!
Okay, we know some of you are saying, “Keto?” If you are following a high-fat low-carb Keto diet, then you will wonder where the fat is in our Mimosa. Well, if you have been adding Keto recipes to your recipe box, by now, you realize that Keto took over from “low carb” in recipe titles, today. Bloggers have been using the words interchangeably for a while now. Let’s clarify by labeling this one “Keto-friendly.” The drink has only 3.5g of carbs!
Traditional Mimosas are a champagne drink, flavored with orange juice. Our version substitutes an Italian Prosecco for the champagne. Prosecco is a bit sweeter and fruitier than a dry champagne, yet virtually the same in terms of carbs. Prosecco is Italian rather than French. It is made from the Glera grape. It is usually a bit cheaper than champagne. We actually like it better for any Mimosa. The carbs are slightly more than a typical dry champagne, but our entire drink only has 3.5g of carbs. Prosecco is becoming very popular. You can purchase more pricey brand of Prosecco, but we really like Costco’s own brand and that is what we used for this Mimosa.
To keep the carbs low we use Trop50 for the traditional fresh squeezed orange juice. We have used Trop50 before for our Keto Tequila Sunrise Cocktail and our Keto Mezcal Orange Margarita. Three ounces of Trop50 has only 4.7g of carbs, and our Mimosa Recipe only uses 1 ounce. So that equates to only 1.6g of carbs per drink. Even if you have more than one, your carbs are very limited. Using Trop50 in a cocktail is a great way to keep the carbs low. You still get a real orange juice taste.
Finally, we substitute Torani Sugar-free Strawberry Syrup for fresh-muddled strawberries. Feel free to use your blender and pulse a puree of fresh strawberries with the Trop50 for a more pulpy and natural strawberry taste. You can then eliminate the Torani Sugar-free Strawberry Syrup. However, you will increase the total carbs. We usually say each fresh strawberry adds one net carb. So, for this creation, we stick with the Torani Sugar-free Strawberry Syrup and Trop50.
Remember, the entire drink only has 3.5g of carbs. You can enjoy your Sunday Mimosas with brunch and stay low carb!
Preparation could not be easier. You do not need a cocktail shaker. The drink can be made directly in a fluted champagne glass. We start with the Torani Sugar-free Syrup. Pour in one-half ounce and follow it with one ounce of Trop 50. Top it off with three ounces of Prosecco and you are all set. Some bloggers do not even stir a Strawberry Mimosa. It may look like a Tequila Sunrise, if you pour slowly. However, we give a light stir with a bartenders spoon to blend the ingredients.
The Torani Sugar-free Syrups are perfect for many mixed drinks or cocktails. If you haven’t already thought about it, how about a Peach flavored Mimosa with Prosecco. You now have a delicious Bellini! All you need to do is substitute Peach Torani Sugar-free Syrup for the Strawberry Torani Sugar-free Syrup. Torani also makes a number of other sugar-free syrups that would make unique brunch Mimosas. We would suggest a Mango Torani Sugar-free Syrup or even a Pineapple Torani Sugar-free Syrup. Use the same Prosecco and Trop50 and try something different this Sunday.
Fluted Champagne Glasses are generally 5-6 ounces and the drink recipe makes a 4 1/2 ounce pour. Make sure all of your ingredients are chilled and ready to pour. It is also a good idea to store your fluted glasses in the refrigerator before mixing. This drink is best served cold.
Our Keto Italian Strawberry Mimosa is a great drink for a Sunday Brunch party! You can actually mix up a batch for that party. A 750ml bottle of Prosecco will make approximately 8 fluted glasses of drink. Try increasing the servings from 1 to 8 in our recipe carb below and you will see the correct portions for the other ingredients. Basically 4 ounces of Torani Strawberry Sugar-free Syrup and 8 ounces of Trop50 Orange Juice, in a pitcher, and top with a bottle of cold Prosecco – now that is a brunch drink!
