How to make a perfect mimosa recipe
Cool it! Make sure all your ingredients are perfectly chilled before starting your prosecco mimosa.
You don’t want to add warm prosecco to the orange juice and then realize that you have to chill everything in the refrigerator for a few hours, losing all the bubbles. What a disaster!
Keep it sparkling. Tip the glass as you pour to keep the Prosecco as fizzy as possible.
Can I make a pitcher of Mimosas? Sure! Just follow the directions below, but use a pitcher instead of a glass. Easy!
Best champagne for mimosas
While this is a prosecco mimosa recipe, using real champagne is a lovely indulgence.
However, any type of sparkling wine will work well. Cava or Brut sparkling wines (or champagnes) are terrific choices for making a tasty mimosa cocktail.
Speaking of champagne, you must serve this prosecco mimosa in champagne flutes!
Personally, I like flute glasses with stems. These type of glasses don’t leave a ring on the table.
Also, by holding the stems, your hands don’t warm the mimosa drink.
Additions and substitutions for the best mimosa recipe ever!
Have fun with this mimosa recipe by changing up the ingredients:
Orange juices: Use fresh OJ instead of bottled. (Yes, you can tell the difference!)
Use blood orange juice. It’s very pretty.
You can also use tangerine juice.
Or use a combination of orange, blood orange and/or tangerine juices. Yum!
Avoid pulpy orange juices, if possible. So strain your orange juice through a fine mesh strainer.
That way you don’t have nasty pulp sticking to the sides of your champagne flutes!
Not only is pulp unattractive, it’s a pain to rinse off the glasses, especially if it’s dried on after you’ve finished your meal.
Grenadine: Add grenadine to made a Sunrise Prosecco Mimosa recipe. (See the recipe instructions below.)
Garnish: Add a slice of orange, lemon or lime or a sprig of mint, thyme or lavender as a garnish.
You can also garnish with maraschino cherries!
Cointreau (orange liqueur): Add a splash for an extra kick of yummy orange flavor.
Seltzer: Add a splash of flavored seltzer.
If you want to lighten up your cocktail, you can use half plain or orange seltzer and half Prosecco.
Variations on an easy mimosa recipe
Don’t stop at just prosecco and orange juice. Try these variations:
- Lemon juice, known as the Lemosa
- Pineapple juice
- Cranberry juice, known as the Poinsettia, which you can serve during the holidays
- Grapefruit juice, called the Megmosa
- Apple cider, called the Vermosa, a terrific fall time drink
- Pomegranate juice, which would also be lovely during the holidays
Combine two or more juices in your mimosas! I’d think grapefruit and orange juice would be divine, don’t you?
What about pomegranate and cranberry juice? Or pineapple with a splash of cider? Fantastic!
