This easy hack to make chilled Mimosas has made us wonder, why didn’t we ever think of it before?
The video of the easy hack was shared on Instagram Reels by Carla Alva (@carlaalva), and soon reposted by the popular page @todayyearsold. In the clip, Alva starts by making orange juice cubes in an ice tray. But that wasn’t all that she did! Take a look at the viral video here:

In the clip, Alva froze orange juice in the freezer to make orange ice cubes. Then, she simply popped two ice cubes in a glass, added some sparkling wine and voila! Fresh, chilled Mimosas were ready to enjoy.
Wasn’t that a clever trick? Instagram users too were left impressed with the genius trick to quickly make a batch of Mimosas for summer season. “Perfect for summer mimosas by the pool!! Thanks,” wrote one user. “We have aliens amongst us because why haven’t I ever thought of this,” said another one.
