The fun pink color is sweet and inviting, which makes it a great addition to a party with friends. And best of all, it’s so fast that you won’t have to play bartender all day!
What Goes Into This Recipe
1 Champagne. Whether you choose real champagne or some kind of sparkling white wine, bubbles are essential to mimosas.
2 Pink lemons. The pink color of this drink comes from pink lemons. They also provide a sweet and tart flavor to pair with white wine.
You can also make this with our blueberry lemonade or strawberry lemonade.
3 slices of lemon. Garnishing a champagne flute with a slice of lemon adds an interesting display to the drink.

Frequently Asked Questions
For the sake of creativity, only real champagne comes from the Champagne region of France. Any other sparkling white wine is just that – a sparkling white wine.
Mimosa is named after Frank Meier at the Ritz Hotel in Paris who mixed equal parts of sparkling wine and water in 1925.
Looking for a mimosa party? You can have different juices to make a “mimosa bar”. For white wine, a 750mL bottle of white wine makes about six to eight mimosas, and most guests have one or three mimosas with brunch.
Try to choose a dry or dry wine to appreciate the sweetness of the juices. Other good choices are dry Prosecco or Brut champagne.
Be sure to chill the white wine before making the mimosa. But don’t put it in the refrigerator to chill it because this will cause the wine to have less foam when poured.
Get creative with decorations. For example, make a skewer of fresh fruit such as grapes and fresh berries to add color to the glass. No skewers? Simply garnish the glass with a lemon wedge, an orange slice, or a sliced strawberry.
