Drink Recipe:: Mimosa

by Negronis Greg

Today we're talking about the delicious and refreshing drink, the Mimosa.

Originating in Paris in the 1920s, the Mimosa is a simple yet sophisticated cocktail that combines equal parts champagne and orange juice. Some variations call for a splash of triple sec or a dash of grenadine, but the classic recipe remains the same.



  1. Chill a champagne flute in the refrigerator for at least 15 minutes before serving.
  2. Fill the chilled flute halfway with Mionetto Prosecco Brut.
  3. Add the fresh-squeezed orange juice.
  4. Stir gently.
  5. Top off the glass with more Mionetto Prosecco Brut.
  6. Garnish with a slice of orange or a strawberry, if desired.

While the Mimosa may seem like a simple drink to make, it's important to use fresh, high-quality ingredients. Freshly squeezed orange juice is a must, and using a good quality prosecco will make all the difference.

When it comes to who makes the best Mimosa, it's hard to say. Many bartenders and mixologists have their own unique spin on the classic recipe, and it really depends on personal preference. However, one great spot to try a delicious Mimosa is at the famous brunch spot, Sarabeth's in New York City. They serve up a classic Mimosa made with freshly squeezed orange juice and a choice of champagne or prosecco.

As for pairings, the Mimosa is a perfect drink for brunch or any daytime occasion. It pairs well with a variety of breakfast and brunch dishes such as eggs Benedict, pancakes, and waffles. It's also a great drink to sip on a lazy weekend afternoon with some fresh fruit or a light snack.

So there you have it, the Mimosa - a classic, refreshing, and versatile cocktail that's perfect for any occasion. Give it a try at your next brunch or lazy weekend afternoon and enjoy!
