1) Classic Mimosa

This classic brunch cocktail is easy to make and always a crowd-pleaser. Any sparkling wine will work, but if you want to give your mimosas a bit of elegance, opt for champagne! Plus we’ve already rounded up our 12 favorite champagnes that are perfect for mixing into this classic cocktail (classic mimosa recipe).


  • Chilled Champagne or Sparkling Wine
  • Orange Juice


Equal parts Champagne (sparkling wine) and orange juice. 1:1 ratio is what I typically use, however the beauty of this recipe is the versatility. For those that want a more sweet cocktail, you can add a little more orange juice. And for those that want it with a bit more of a kick, increase the sparkling wine.

2) Mimosa Sangria
