This Hawaiian Mimosa cocktail is a light, fruity, and delicious twist on the classic mimosa. All you need are 5 simple ingredients, coconut rum, pineapple juice, orange juice, cranberry juice, and prosecco to make this drink that will have you dreaming of tropical getaways.
Perfect for summer happy hours, special brunches, and poolside parties.
Hawaiian Pineapple Mimosa
When it comes to summer, light cocktails are the way to go. And nothing is more refreshing than this Hawaiian Pineapple Mimosa, aka Pineapple Mimosa, or Cranberry Orange Mimosa with its combination of citrus juices and prosecco. It's easy to make and perfect for romantic tete-a-tetes, special brunches, or by the pitcher for your next party.
And mimosas have always been my go-to when it comes to holidays too. Christmas wouldn't be the same without glasses of Pomegranate Mimosas, Mother's Day brunch is the perfect opportunity for the classic mimosa, while New Year's Eve calls for breaking out the Cranberry Mimosas. Of course, these mimosas would be great any time of year too!
This Hawaiian mimosa is slightly different than the one that went viral on Tik-Tok as well as the standard Hawaiian Mimosa cocktail. The standard is usually composed of a mixture of coconut rum, pineapple juice, and prosecco.
My recipe ups the tropical flavors by adding orange juice in place of half of the pineapple juice and drizzling in a little cranberry juice to produce a color reminiscent of a Hawaiian sunset. Yep, definitely dreaming of a tropical getaway now!

What's in a Hawaiian Mimosa?
These are the ingredients you'll need for making this tropical mimosa recipe:
- Prosecco - no need for a costly bubbly as it delivers big on flavor from the citrus juices. See other effervescent choices below.
- Coconut Rum - puts the tropical in this mimosa. Malibu is my go-to favorite.
- Orange Juice - fresh squeezed is always best but bottled will also work.
- Pineapple Juice - again, fresh is best, but canned will work as well.
- Cranberry Juice - I don't like adding a lot of extra sugar to my cocktails so I opt for a straight-up cranberry juice instead of a mix. If using a cranberry juice cocktail the finished drink will be much sweeter.
Recipe Variation - Blue Mimosa
If you want a colorful blue mimosa, add an ounce of blue curacao to make a blue Hawaiin mimosa. It will have the same lovely blue-green color as the ocean water around the Hawaiian islands.
Best Wine or Champagne Type for Mimosa
- Brut - The driest champagne
- Cava - A sparkling wine from Spain
- Dry Sparkling Wine - From America or other parts of the world.
- Prosecco - A sparkling wine from Italy

Can I make Hawaiian Mimosas in Advance?
Yes, but do not add the prosecco until right before serving. Otherwise, it will go flat and you want your mimosas to be bubbly.
