It doesn't get any easier than this, the basic Mimosa recipe calls for a bottle of your favorite champagne and orange juice. A dash of each and you are in business to celebrate a wedding, Mother's day, whatever the occasion - nothing says fancy brunch like a Mimosa.
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 5 minutes
- Sparkling Wine, Cava, Prosecco or Champagne (1 bottle)
- Orange Juice (1 carton)
- Triple Sec (optional)
Fill half of a champagne flute with chilled sparkling wine or Champagne (about an ounce) and top off with chilled orange juice (again about 2 ounces), gently stir. If you'd like to add triple sec, just a splash to taste works out fine. For added flare, slice up a strawberry to decorate the rim of each flute. Enjoy!
* Also delightful over ice in a larger white wine glass.
For cocktail techies, the drink made with just OJ and sparkling wine is called a "Buck's Fizz," when you add triple sec it becomes a mimosa. However, most people think of a basic mimosa simply as OJ and a sparkling wine.
