May 16, 2022
What better way to celebrate National Mimosa Day than by enjoying a mimosa flight – or two? I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – flights are so popular right now, since they are a fantastic way to try multiple varieties of different food and drink. Perfect for indecisive people like me who have FOMO for the choices they didn’t land on. I’ve covered beer flights, butter flights, and coffee flights. Now it’s time to check out the fantastic mimosa flights in Syracuse and nearby restaurants.
Mimosa Flights Around the Clock
Mimosas may be most popular on Sundays are brunch. But who says you can only have mimosas at brunch? These restaurants offer mimosa flights every day of the week so you can enjoy them whenever your heart desires.
When Crazy Daisies first gained popularity, it was for the numerous social media posts with photos of their beautiful mimosa flights. Why? Because their flights not only featured a variety of fruity flavors, but they were each adorned with a different flower from their gardens. There are two different pre-selected mimosa flight options, each with 4 fruit + herb creations. And yes, each of the mimosas is also available in a full size version.
PS – When you go to Crazy Daisies, be sure to get the burrata and pesto – it’s phenomenal!

Another spot known for its creative menu and seasonal specialties, Second Chance Diner in Camillus also features mimosa flights. Choose 4 from the list of classic varieties to make up your flight. The specialty mimosas don’t come in a flight, so they are only available as full-size drinks. PS – Groups of 3-4 people might enjoy a mimosa tower for the table to share.
While some restaurants – mostly diners – offer mimosa flights every day, there are many places that only offer them as specials during weekend brunches. Make sure to add these spots to your next brunch out with your friends.
