The mimosa flights from Crushed in Pacific Beach have my name written all over them!! Cuteness overload.
I enjoy a classic mimosa but I love a crafty twist to my favorite drinks. I’ve recently discovered a few restaurants around San Diego that are now offering mimosa flights and my first stop was at Crushed in PB after Sunday brunch. Crushed is a quaint little spot in the heart of Garnet Ave that serves brunch, dinner, a full-serviced bar and of course, mimosas. As this spot has become trendy, the earlier you arrive the better as the line and wait do get lengthy towards the late morning/early afternoon.
Mimosas in San Diego: Mimosa Flight at Crushed in Pacific Beach
For the mimosa flight, you get to choose three (3) of their mimosa flavors. My three from left to right were the Rosemary & Grapefruit, Lavender Love, and Elderflower in Bloom. My favorite would have to be the Rosemary & Grapefruit as it was very refreshing and light. The other two were just as delicious but were definitely on the sweet side.
Each mimosa is garnished with the key essence of the drink. The Rosemary & Grapefruit was garnished with rosemary, the Lavender Love was garnished with the lavender flower, and the Elderflower in Bloom was garnished with an elderflower. It gives the drink a classy touch and also enhances the flavors of the drink as it is steeping inside.
