Table of Contents
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
This delightful and vibrant drink is not only simple to prepare, but brings a touch of color to any brunch. It brings together two of the most popular wine cocktails. And, it’s sweetened with fresh fruit juices for an all-natural sweetness that can be topped off with some fizzy bubbly.
- 1 bottle of chilled Champagne or chilled Sparkling Wine
- 1/2 cup Cointreau or any orange liqueur (or vodka works too =))
- 3 cups of fresh fruit (strawberry, raspberry, pineapple, guava, blackberries, etc…)
- 3 cups of Orange Juice
- Combine the fresh fruit in a large pitcher. Using a large wooden spoon or muddler, stir and muddle the fruit for 45 seconds to 1 minute.
- Add orange juice and Cointreau (or any orange liqueur) into the large pitcher and stir again for 30 seconds.
- Place in refrigerator for 30 minutes to an hour.
- To serve, fill each glass 1/3 full of your juice and fruit blend. Then add champagne filling them up to their brim.
3) Fizzy Orange Spritzers
