What Is A Mimosa?

A classic mimosa is served with two ingredients:

  • orange juice
  • champagne

However, with the popularity of craft cocktails they have really taken off and you can now find so many variations.

I’ve even shared a low-carb mimosa that’s become a family favorite. 

Some other fun variations are:

  • Pomegranate – you can also use Pom juice
  • Bellini – using peach juice 
  • Apple – switching out orange juice for apple juice

What Is The Best Champagne For A Mimosa

Mimosas are actually best served with a sweet and fruity sparkling wine. As you are adding juice, you don’t want to use your best champagne. 

Save that bad boy for a special occasion! 

Here are some popular options for mimosas:

  • Prosecco
  • Cava

Tips For Serving Mimosas

  • Best served chilled
  • Serve in champagne flutes for a classic mimosa
  • The standard ratio is 2-1 champagne to juice
  • Set up a mimosa bar with fresh fruit and juices where guests can make their own variation
