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.
Grand Marnier and Champagne
I enjoy a Champagne Mimosa at brunch, however, once the sun goes down, I prefer a cocktail with a little more kick. Substituting Grand Marnier for plain old orange juice, in a nutshell, this is a Grand Marnier Mimosa. Grand Marnier and Champagne half of an orange juiced and a hint of Aperol for that gorgeous orange color and you’re off to the races. I serve my Grand Marnier and Champagne cocktail recipe on the rocks in a highball glass with an orange slice as garnish. It’s cool, refreshing, and the ice cubes keep those bubbles tickling your nose to the last sip.
Controversial I know, what kind of crackpot puts Champagne on the rocks? Haha, well, in my own defense, I don’t use expensive sparkling wines for Mimosas or my Grand Marnier and Champagne cocktail recipe, but I don’t go cheap either. You still want a sparkling wine with a nice flavor, even if it is just a mixer, just make sure it’s not super sweet.
Drink DuJour: Grand 75
Right now, in the the midst of a chaotic and overwhelming 2020, we’re all in need of a little something to celebrate in our lives—whether it’s a recent graduation, a best pal’s birthday, Father’s Day, or just a simple social distanced brunch (taking the proper precautions of course) with the people you love most. For whatever moment or milestone you feel like toasting to, you’ll need something bubbly, delicious, and fancy to sip on. Grand Marnier’s Grand 75 is the perfect cocktail for the job.

7 Delicious Ways to Make a Sidecar, the Too-Often Forgotten Classic Cocktail
When you hear classic cocktail, which drink comes to mind? Unless you&aposre a mixology buff, you probably think martini or Manhattan, or perhaps old-fashioned or gimlet.

We can&apost be sure when or why the sidecar went out of style, but we are certain that it&aposs time the cocktail made a comeback. Here, seven ways to make the drink at home.
Reviews & Comments
Super good, gives it a deep Orange flavor and makes it feel a bit more festive with the orange zest!
Best mimosa ever. Doubled the recipe and added the Champagne last. Another great one Jenn. Enjoyed for Mother’s Day.
i love this drink. however, I need to add some pineapple juice and a splash of vodka. very refreshing. enjoy responsibly.
We made these this morning for Christmas. I followed the measurements exactly but it didn’t fill up an entire glass like your picture. It was very strong liquor flavour. We added more orange juice & it was better for our taste. The grand mariner definitely amps up the flavour. It wasn’t special enough to become a tradition for us though. Maybe I made a mistake when pouring? We used a cava & that was fine for the mimosa though.
Hello! Every recipe I have made of yours has been fabulous! Question: I want to make this for Easter (this Sunday), but would rather make a pitcher. We’re having over 10 adults and would hate to have to keep refilling glasses. Any idea on how to adjust the recipe?
Thanks for all you do!
Hi Lynn, if you’re serving 10, I would suggest doubling the recipe (you may have a little leftover). Just fill the pitcher and store the extra in the fridge until you need to refill the pitcher. Hope everyone enjoys!
Perfect! I really appreciate your quick response.
The recipe looks delicious. What is a good way to garnish a Mimosa?
You could try a thinly sliced orange on the rim of the glass, or floating raspberries.
In the picture in this post, I see a bottle of Cava. Do you have any suggestions for choosing a sparkling wine or champagne for Grand Mimosas? I am thinking you wouldn’t want to use the least nor the most expensive selections. Does Brut or Extra Dry matter?
You don’t need to spend much on the champagne here. Cava (which is inexpensive) works great. In general, stick with something a little drier.
These are delicious! And most definitely a step up from a plain mimosa. After these I will have a hard time having anything else. Thank you for the recipe!
How do I make the best grapefruit mimosa?
As usual, you have to use high quality parts to get a delicious outcome. Start with really good ingredients and taste as you go. Keep in mind that sugar and acid levels vary dramatically in both fresh citrus fruit and sparkling wine. Your taste buds and preferences are also different from mine! Start with the ratios below, then add more Grand Marnier for sweetness, or an extra splash of grapefruit juice or sparkling wine to get to a cocktail you really love.
- Grapefruit juice: Use ripe Ruby Red grapefruit, if you can find them. They’re so sweet, juicy and add a beautiful color to this mimosa. And squeeze your own juice. This grapefruit mimosa doesn’t need much, and freshly squeezed juice adds so much more flavor and aromatics than the processed juice.
- High quality Prosecco (or other fruity sparkling wine): Use a wine you would drink by itself. Don’t use the cheapest sparkling wine just because you’re mixing it with juice. In general, the cheaper you go, the more bitter the wine. Combine bitter wine with grapefruit juice, and you could have a really terrible drink.
- Grand Marnier: the silent champion of this grapefruit mimosa— this famous French liqueur rounds out the cocktail and adds a ton of complexity and richness. Don’t use a dusty plastic bottle of triple sec!
