What ingredients do I need to make this?

- Orange juice
- Cranberry juice
- Optional for garnish: fresh rosemary, whole cranberries, and/or orange slices
What is a mimosa?
A mimosa is a mixture of orange juice and champagne. It is typically served at breakfast or brunch.
What kind of champagne or sparkling wine should I use?
It’s up to you and your taste, but I prefer dry champagne or sparkling wine. I like this because I think mimosas are too sweet if you use a sweeter champagne. I also always go for something cheap since you’re adding juice anyway!
Should I use fresh squeezed or store-bought orange juice?
I always prefer fresh squeezed, but of course if you’re going for a quick and easy option, store bought orange juice works fine!
Do I have to follow the portions?
Look, when it comes to mimosas everyone has their preferred ratio! I typically go heavier on the champagne and lighter on the juice. For this recipe, I went for a classic recipe that is equal parts juice and champagne, but feel free to play around with the ratio based on your preference.
