For this recipe, I prefer using high-quality prosecco but you can also use your favorite dry sparkling wine! Regardless of what you choose, this recipe guarantees a fool-proof cocktail to whip up when you need something quick and easy to serve to friends and family!
For this Classic Mimosa Recipe just grab a bottle of sparkling wine and orange juice. Finish each glass off by garnishing it with orange slices!
I’ve found the best Mimosa ratio is 2 parts orange juice to 6 parts sparkling wine! If you prefer a stronger Mimosa just add in more sparkling wine!
You could also make this drink with other flavored orange juices such as orange-pineapple juice! Then garnish the edge of the glasses with both orange slices and pineapple wedges!
Or even with orange-mango juice and hanging wedges of mango and oranges off the rim of the glass! Using blood orange juice would be another delicious variation to try!

Frequently Asked Questions
How Do I Make This Mimosa Non-Alcoholic?
Swap out the champagne for a sparkling white grape juice, sprite, or even ginger ale for a non-alcoholic mimosa. Keep in mind the final taste will differ from an alcoholic mimosa!
Do I Need To Refrigerate The Champagne?
Chilled sparkling wine will give these Mimosas the best flavor, so yes! Warm mimosas just don’t seem to taste the same!
Can I Use High Pulp Orange Juice With This Mimosa Recipe?
Absolutely! You can use whatever orange juice you love to make your Mimosas!
How Many Mimosas Can I Get From A Bottle Of Champagne?
A standard bottle of champagne has 25.4 ounces in it. Since this recipe calls for 6 ounces of champagne per Mimosa you’ll get roughly 4 Mimosas per standard bottle of champagne.
