Mimosa Cocktail

One memorable Sunday morning, we remembered we had a bottle of champagne in the fridge. So I made each of us a Mimosa to go along with some muffins for a late Sunday morning brunch.  Mimosa cocktails are really good when having a group or party for brunch.

Serving size: 8 Mimosa Cocktails
  • 1 750 ml bottle chilled champagne or dry sparkling wine
  • 3 cups (750 ml) chilled orange juice
Serving size: 1 Mimosa Cocktail
  • 1/3 cup chilled champagne or dry sparkling wine
  • 1/3 cup chilled orange juice
  1. Fill champagne flutes 1/2 full with chilled sparkling wine. Top with orange juice. 
  • I don't mix the champagne and orange juice in a pitcher as I feel it goes flat fast when mixed. So I make them up individually before serving. 
  • I don't stir them as again it can make it flat faster
  • Keep champagne and orange juice chilled. They don't taste as good warm. 
  • If you are serving a large group you can go less on the champagne/sparkling wine, but we prefer the flavor of using equal amounts of orange juice and champagne/sparking wine
  • You can add a little splash of Triple Sec or another orange liquor for added orange flavoring.
