An iconic brunch cocktail, the mimosa is a simple drink to make. Both casual and festive, it's perfect for any occasion, from holidays to Mother's Day and showers to a weekend brunch. Named after the yellow mimosa flower, with one sip of this bubbly, fruity cocktail, you'll realize why it's been a favorite day-drinking choice since the 1920s.
To make a classic mimosa, you'll need well-chilled orange juice and sparkling wine. The recipe creates a semi-dry mimosa, and you can easily make it sweeter by pouring the two ingredients equally. Choose Champagne if you like, or save money with a nice prosecco or cava. The triple sec is optional (Cointreau is an excellent choice) but recommended. The orange liqueur adds dimension and its sweetness marries the sweet-tart juice and dry wine beautifully.
The best part of the mimosa is that the wine's bubbles mix the drink for you. It's an excellent pour-and-serve cocktail that makes entertaining a breeze, whether made by the glass or pitcher. Serve it alongside your favorite brunch dishes—from frittatas to French toast—or enjoy it with a light snack of cheese, crackers, and fresh seasonal fruits.
Flay's mimosa was meant to resemble a sunrise
Flay has a sunrise mimosa recipe that features a thick mango puree at the base of the glass. Once the prosecco and pomegranate liqueur are added, the result is supposed to look like the bright yellows and reds of a summer sunrise.
The ingredient list was short: fresh mango, fresh orange juice, chilled prosecco, and pomegranate liqueur.
The pomegranate liqueur was a fun, delicious addition, but it was harder to find than the other ingredients. No grocery or liquor stores in my area carried it, but I tracked it down in another Los Angeles neighborhood several miles away.
Great Teas for Mimosas
Many different kinds of teas will pair well with mimosas. The fruity types of tea will always go well with them, but you are also open to dabble with different kinds and flavors (maybe not chai, though). It all depends on what kind of taste you are going for and what you feel like. Check out the suggestions below:

How to Make a Mimosa Bar
Let’s talk about bubbly and juice and how to make a mimosa bar. This is perfect for your next brunch, party or girls night in (and is also perfect for any occasion!)
I don’t know about you, but I looooove a good mimosa. There’s just something that excites me about bubbly champagne mixed with juice and topped with some fresh fruit. It’s just a delicious and genius combination, so hats off to whomever created it, ha!
As soon as I wrote ‘hats off to whomever created it’ my mind started conjuring up an image of a fancy woman (wearing a fur collared jacket and a string of pearls around her neck and lots of diamonds) telling the bartender to add a little juice to her champagne because it was the morning and it’s not acceptable for a lady to be drinking before noon. I had to google it, just had to!
Come to find out the mimosa is thought to have been created in 1925 by Frank Meier at the Hôtel Ritz Paris (so we’ll still pretend good ‘ole Frank created it for a fancy Parisian woman, k?)
I always feel fancy drinking them, no matter what the occasion. I’ve of course had mimosas at brunch, and at bridal showers, and of course when getting ready for my wedding, and also for New Years Eve! It’s just an all around great cocktail. Mimosa’s are made by combining equal parts champagne and juice (typically a citrus juice) and then are topped with fresh fruit – I’ve heard some people like to use two parts champagne to one part juice, so it just depends on your preference (I like the fruity flavors mixed, so I keep the proportions equal). And since I like variety I always like trying different combinations.
So when I saw small juice containers at the grocery store, I just knew I had to do a post on how to make a mimosa bar. The small juice containers make a perfect way to try different flavor combinations!
Step 1: you want to start by finding different juices. I decided to go with 4 different varieties: orange juice, limeade, raspberry lemonade, and pomegranate juice. These pitchers are a great option if you’re having a larger group and want more juice. Plus they look nice on a table setup.
Step 2: Champagne! (1 bottle per 8-10 mimosas)
Step 3: A variety of fresh fruit. I had orange slices, lemon slices, raspberries, and cranberries (strawberries and apples would be two other fruits I would recommend.)
I also found disposable mimosa glasses (like these ones), these are perfect if you’re having a bridal shower or party and don’t have 20 champagne flutes laying around.
After all your items are placed on a table, guests can choose what combination to make!

How to Make Mimosas
Making a mimosa couldn’t be simpler, as it only requires 2 basic ingredients: chilled sparkling wine and orange juice. That’s it! For this cocktail, you don’t even need ice. In fact, for the best results, you should avoid using it, as it will dilute and diminish the wine’s carbonation. For a really cold, bubbly cocktail, chill the wine and orange juice the night before you plan to make mimosas.
When you’re ready to serve, pour the wine into a tilted champagne flute, letting it run down the inside of the glass to avoid losing carbonation. Top the wine with the orange juice, taste and adjust, and enjoy!
I like to use a 50/50 ratio of dry sparkling wine to orange juice in my mimosas, but make sure you taste and adjust your drink to your liking. You may prefer as much as 2 parts sparkling wine to 1 part orange juice, or the opposite if you like a less alcoholic cocktail.
Mimosa Recipe Tips
- Break out the champagne flutes. Champagne flutes are designed to preserve carbonation, so using them will make your drinks extra bubbly. If you don’t have them, wine glasses are your next best bet.
- Chill your glasses. As I said above, you don’t want to add ice here, as it’ll make the cocktails become flat faster. If you want your mimosa to be really cold, chill your glasses ahead of time along with the sparkling wine and orange juice.
- Skip the pulp. No one likes a pulpy mimosa! For smooth, bubbly cocktails, choose pulp-free orange juice. If you prefer to squeeze your own, squeeze and strain it in advance. Then, chill it before mixing up your drinks.
- Mix it up. This mimosa recipe is simple and flexible, so feel free to play with it. Try swapping regular orange juice for blood orange juice, or use different fresh fruit juice altogether. Cranberry juice, apple cider, grapefruit juice, or pomegranate juice would all be great choices. You could also add a splash of orange liqueur, such as Grand Marnier, for a stronger orange flavor. A little goes a long way here – start with a 4:1 ratio of orange juice to liqueur.
