There is nothing like a good, tasty Mimosa during the holiday’s. Every year my wife and I enjoy a few of these tasty beverages on Christmas day! 

Here is how you can make the perfect, classic Mimosa! 


Use a dry sparkling wine, not sweet. Your best bet is to look for “Cava,” which comes from Spain or an American sparkling wine that’s around $15. A dry Prosecco is a great option, too. You don’t want to buy a sparkling wine under $10, if you do…you will enter headache central!

The Orange Juice

If you can make it happen, you will want to use freshly squeezed orange juice. Seems like a lot of work, but it is totally worth it. Freshly squeezed OJ is a little lighter, a bit tart and more delicate than anything you can find in the store.

If you don’t want to squeeze your own juices…try using the ‘Simply’ brand of orange juice. 


The Ratio

A classic mimosa recipe calls for equal parts sparkling wine to orange juice. There is no doubt equal parts tastes great, but holding back on the wine a little creates a more enjoyable beverage. There is also the option to add a splash of orange liqueur, such as Grand Marnier or triple sec. 

When you’re making a mimosa, always add the sparkling wine first, then top with orange juice. This way, the cocktail mixes together on its own and won’t make a sticky mess at the top of the glass. 

***You never want to serve a Mimosa warm. Make sure to keep the wine and orange juice chilled in the refrigerator prior to making and serving!
