What is a Mimosa?

What exactly is a mimosa? A mimosa is the best brunch cocktail, period. LOL! I love to drink a good mimosa during brunch. It’s a cocktail that is typically mixed with orange juice and sparkling wine.

How Do You Make a Cranberry Mimosa

  1. Use a cocktail rimmer and line the rim of the champagne flute with sweetener.
  2. I like to add the cranberry juice and lime juice to the champagne flute first.
  3. Next, add the champagne or sparkling wine.
  4. Garnish with fresh cranberries or rosemary.

What Champagne Do You Use For Mimosas

Dry or semi-dry sparkling wine will work great in mimosas. I also like to use Brut Champagne. You can read more about The Best Champagne for Mimosas here.

What is the Difference Between Cranberry Juice and Cranberry Juice Cocktail

Cranberry juice cocktail is sweetened with high fructose corn syrup.

Cranberry juice that is labeled 100% juice is sweetened with other fruit juices, such as apple or grape. You can also go to the health food section of the grocery store to grab “Just Cranberry Juice.”

Both cranberry juice cocktail and cranberry juice have the same amount of sugar content, but the type of sugar is vastly different. Cranberry juice cocktail is sweetened with high fructose corn syrup (which has been linked to many health issues) and 100% juice is sweetened with natural sugar.

I opt for 100% cranberry juice but feel free to use whichever you prefer. Cranberries are naturally tart. To compensate for this, I add sweetener to the rim of the glasses to provide sweetness.

How Do You Serve Mimosas?

I like to add juice to the champagne glass or flute first and then top with champagne. This will ensure you get the bubble effect at the top of the glass.

Mimosa bars and carts are also super popular too. If you plan to entertain guests, you may want to serve them via a spread and bar. Check out How to Set up a Mimosa Bar here.
