Drinks & Beverages: Chilled Mimosa Cocktails

One of the biggest industries for which essential oils are used is the food and beverage industry.

Essential oils are often used to soften and add lift to food flavors, beverages, drinks and are in many baked goods, gelatins and soft candies.

For instance small traces of rosa damascena are used to tastefully enhance strawberry, raspberry, apricot and bitter-almond food products.

The easiest way to use essential oils to favor your drinks and beverages is simply to add a drop of a single oil or blend of oils into some sort of carrier like a teaspoon of honey or maple syrup, then stir into a hot or cold beverage drink like water, tea or milk to enjoy a refreshing break in your day.

Favorite essential oils most often used for making a hot drink or beverage are peppermint, fresh ginger root, cinnamon leaf and lemon.

Here’s a recipe for a popular drink to get you started exploring using essential oils in your beverages and drinks.


Mimosa cocktails made with dry sparkling wine and fresh orange juice create a celebratory mood and are a popular favorite to serve at brunch. Quick and simple to make, mimosas will make your brunch memorable and create an enjoyable experience for everyone.
