To Make One Mimosa
Fill a champagne glass half full with champagne or sparkling wine.
Add enough lemonade to fill the glass almost full.
Pour in 1/2 ounce (or 1 Tablespoon) of the blueberry syrup (recipe below).
Big Batch Mimosas
Mix 6 cups lemonade with 1 cup of the blueberry syrup (from below) in a pitcher.
Immediately before serving, combine equal amounts of the blueberry lemonade mixture and the champagne.
Use a grater to get the zest from one lemon. Set aside.
Combine 1 cup water with 1 cup sugar in a saucepan over medium heat.
Stir until the sugar has completely dissolved.
Add 2 cups of fresh blueberries and the lemon zest.
Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and let the mixture simmer until the blueberries burst. This should take 5 to 10 minutes.
Remove the blueberry mixture from the heat, and let cool for about 10 minutes.
Strain the blueberry mixture through a sieve into a glass jar with a lid.
Chill in the refrigerator for at least a couple of hours before using it in Mimosas.
This blueberry syrup can be made ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 3 weeks.Make sure that the blueberry syrup, lemonade and champagne (or sparkling wine) are all cold before serving. Do not add ice to Mimosas since it will water them down too much.If your lemonade has pulp in it, use a sieve to strain it before adding it to your Mimosa. The pulp will congregate on the top of the glass and make it harder to drink. (Not to mention, it doesn't look as good).
