Mimosas - Fancy a Drink


A mimosa is a popular brunch cocktail made with a blend of orange juice and sparkling wine, typically champagne. Here’s a simple recipe to make a classic mimosa:


  • 2 ounces (60ml) orange juice, freshly squeezed (if possible)
  • 2 ounces (60ml) champagne or other sparkling wine, chilled
  • Optional: orange slice or twist for garnish



  • Pour the orange juice into a champagne flute, filling it halfway.
  • Slowly pour the champagne or sparkling wine into the flute, filling it to the top.
  • Gently stir the mixture with a long-handled spoon to combine the orange juice and champagne. Be careful not to over-stir, as this can cause the drink to lose its effervescence.
  • Optionally, garnish with an orange slice or twist.


There are several variations of the classic mimosa recipe, which can be made by substituting or adding different fruit juices, liqueurs, or garnishes. Here are some popular substitutes you can try:

  • Pomegranate Mimosa
  • Grapefruit Mimosa
  • Strawberry Mimosa
  • Peach Bellini

In each of these cases, simply replace the orange juice with the fruit juice and matching garnish of your choice.
