Champagne Mimosas are a sophisticated treat with brunch. Dress them up by serving in tulip glasses on ice or simply multiply the recipe and fill up a pitcher.

If you can swing it, use fresh-squeezed orange juice. Also, we would recommend a dry champagne or sparkling wine (such as a “Cava”), not a sweet wine.  

A classic mimosa recipe calls for equal parts sparkling wine to orange juice, however, you can certainly adjust the recipe to have less (or more) alcohol if desired.

For a festive touch, add a splash of cranberry juice. 
For something special, add a tablespoon of liqueur like Grand Marnier or Chambord.
For a mimosa mocktail, use sparkling soda.

1/3 cup chilled champagne or sparkling wine
1/3 cup chilled orange juice
Optional: 2 dashes bitters
Orange slice, for garnish

Pour the champagne or sparkling wine into the glass first. Then, add the orange juice. Do not stir. Optional: Add bitters. Garnish with an orange slice.
