Notes

Can you make mimosas ahead of time?
I don’t recommend making them in advance because the champagne will go flat. This is such an easy drink you can make a batch in less than five minutes, so there’s no need to make it ahead.
What champagne is best for a mimosa?
I like dry unsweetened champagne. The orange juice has a lot of sugar so a dry sparkling wine works best. You can also use prosecco, which is a type of Italian sparkling wine.
What are the best juices for mimosa drinks?
You can use lots of different fruit juices to make this drink. Orange juice is traditional, but try making them with pineapple, watermelon, strawberry, or mango juice. You can also do a mix of fruit juices.
