What Is A Mimosa?
A classic mimosa is served with two ingredients:
- orange juice
However, with the popularity of craft cocktails they have really taken off and you can now find so many variations.
I’ve even shared a low-carb mimosa that’s become a family favorite.
Some other fun variations are:
- Pomegranate – you can also use Pom juice
- Bellini – using peach juice
- Apple – switching out orange juice for apple juice
What Is The Best Champagne For A Mimosa
Mimosas are actually best served with a sweet and fruity sparkling wine. As you are adding juice, you don’t want to use your best champagne.
Save that bad boy for a special occasion!
