What’s better to serve at brunch than a fabulous mimosa cocktail made with dry sparkling wine and orange juice? It’s simple, fun and perfect to serve company. Use a dry sparkling wine, not sweet. We usually will spend $12 to $15 on the sparkling wine we add to our mimosas. 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.
1 (750 ml) bottle chilled dry sparkling wine
3 cups (750 ml) chilled orange juice (freshly squeezed is best)
1/2 cup (120 ml) Grand Marnier or triple sec, optional
Fill 8 champagne flutes 1/2 full with chilled sparkling wine. Top with orange juice. If you are using, top mimosa with 1 tablespoon of Grand Marnier or triple sec.
