A mimosa is a simple drink, but great for so many occasions. We like to make ours with Prosecco and orange juice. That’s all it takes!
What is a mimosa? A mimosa is a mix of sparkling wine and orange juice. They can be topped with other drinks to garnish, such as Chambord, vodka, or even whiskey. But for us, simple is best! It reminds me a bit of our Orange Mojito, but it’s also still very different.
What is the best occasion for a Prosecco Mimosa? Just about any occasion. They are a light drink, and very smooth. Because of the orange juice, they are often enjoyed in the morning or with brunch. I think of Christmas morning (or other holidays), a bridal shower or baby shower (just not for the momma-to-be), a small birthday gathering, on a girl’s trip.
You can always dress up your mimosa if you want something a little more fancy. Or maybe you are looking for a different flavor. Here are some ideas:
- Add a splash of fruit juice to the mimosa such as pineapple or cranberry juice
- Top the drink with a bit of Chambord, vodka, Granadine, or Whiskey
- Place a slice of strawberry or a few bits of pomegranate at the bottom of the glass
- Garnish the edge of the glass with a slice of orange or strawberry
- Add a tablespoon of a fruit puree at the bottom
Step by Step
Pour 4 oz of Prosecco into 6 champagne flutes. Top with 4 oz of orange juice in each flute. DO NOT MIX. By pouring the Prosecco in first, the bubbles will help mix everything. If you stir the drink it can make the Prosecco go flat. Serve immediately.
I do not recommend saving any of the Prosecco mimosa after serving. It will go flat quickly. This is a drink best made fresh.
