35 Bubbly Mimosa Recipes That Will Change Up Your Brunch Game Forever
Did you know they can be made with more than just OJ? You do now.
Mimosas are THE brunch cocktail of choice, and not only are they crazy easy to make, they’re also super fun to customize. Even the most beginner home bartender can get in on the sweet, refreshing, bubbly action. All you need is your favorite juice and sparkling wine of choice (champagne, cava, prosecco, or even bubbly rosé would all be killer). Check out our 35 best mimosa recipes ever for inspiration, then get creative. Before you know it, you’ll be crowned the Queen of brunch (and rightfully so!).
New to mimosa making? You can't go wrong with our classic mimosa. One part juice to four parts bubbly is all you need to know to create the brunch go-to. Once you have the proportions down, go off and try out any and all combinations to suit your tastes. Champagne and grapefruit juice for a grapefruit mimosa? Sounds legendary. Cava and strawberries? Yes, please.
With this know-how in your back pocket, you'll be ready to mix up some mimosa margaritas, raspberry mimosas, and strawberry shortcake mimosas in no time. You never have to stop at just champagne and orange juice, although that combo is hard to beat. Some of our favorite mimosas don't just include champagne, and thank goodness for that. Beermosas, Tequila Sunrise mimosas, and Moscow Mule mimosas will convert anyone to the mimosa side.
Mimosas have even inspired some of our favorite non-drink recipes. Adding bubbly improves so many things, like our mimosa fruit salad, mimosa cupcakes, and even mimosa oranges. Want more bubbly cocktails? Try all our favorite champagne cocktails, vanilla-peach Bellinis, and our Prosecco punch.
Nothing kicks off brunch quite like a mimosa. If you prefer your cocktails on the sweeter side, bump up the orange juice to 3 ounces per glass, or go for a sweeter bottle of bubbly. To play up the orange flavor, try adding a dash of orange liqueur, such as Grand Marnier or Cointreau, or a few dashes of orange bitters.
