Classic Mimosa

In a crazy way it is appropriate that I post this Classic Mimosa on St. Patrick’s Day, since that is when I first tried mimosas back in college. There was a fancy restaurant in town that would throw a pajama party on St. Patrick’s Day, complete with a massive fountain overflowing with green mimosas! I decided to stick with the classic version this time around…..

and I don’t have a champagne fountain handy to achieve the full effect anyway, LOL

Soooo, Easter and Mother’s Day are right around the corner and no brunch would be complete without some Classic Mimosas. They are so simple to prepare, and make the occasion a little bit more special…..

Things that sparkle always make things special!!

Unfortunately, I only have large glass pitchers. They’re perfect for Sangria or Voodoo Juice, but a bit big for Mimosas. So choose a smaller pitcher, or you could always make a double batch. 😉

How to make a Classic Mimosa:

Pour orange juice and orange liqueur into a pitcher.

Add the Champagne or Prosecco.

Drop in orange slices to garnish.

How to make an individual Classic Mimosa:

Pour 1 Tablespoon of orange liqueur and 1/3 cup of orange juice into each champagne flute. Then top off each glass with Champagne/Prosecco.

Notes:

  • I prefer Prosecco {sparkling wine} over Champagne but that’s really just personal choice. Pick whichever your family prefers.
  • Cupcake is my favorite brand of Prosecco.
