This amazing prosecco mimosa recipe is made with orange juice and sparkling wine. Mimosas are perfect for Mother’s Day brunches or upcoming holidays when you want to celebrate and have fun!

How to make a perfect mimosa recipe

Cool it!

Make sure all your ingredients are perfectly chilled before starting to make your mimosas.

You don't want to add warm wine to the orange juice and then realize that you have to chill everything 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.

Keep the pitcher in the fridge until party time. Easy!

What’s the best champagne for mimosas?

While this is a prosecco mimosa recipe, using real champagne is a lovely indulgence.

However, any type of sparkling wine for mimosas 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 wine glasses with stems. These types of wine glasses don't leave a ring on the table.

Also, by holding the stems, your hands don't warm the mimosa drink recipe.

Additions and substitutions for the best mimosas ever!

Have fun with this mimosas recipe by changing up the ingredients:

Orange juices:

Use quality fresh orange juice for mimosas 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. 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.


Add grenadine to made a Sunrise Prosecco Mimosa recipe. (See the recipe instructions below.)


Add slices of oranges, lemons, or limes 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.


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:

Prosecco and…

  • 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!
