Can I make a mimosa ahead of time?

While mixing your mimosa right before serving is best, you can prepare the ingredients beforehand. Just keep the sparkling wine and orange juice chilled separately until you can mix and serve.

How do I serve mimosas for a large group?

Consider setting up a mimosa bar with pre-chilled ingredients, fruit juices, and garnishes. Guests can mix their mimosas to their liking.

Can I use bottled orange juice for my mimosa?

While freshly squeezed orange juice is always best, you can use bottled orange juice if that’s what you have. Just choose a high-quality juice with no added sugar or preservatives.

Can I make a mimosa without sparkling wine?

You can make a mimosa without sparkling wine by substituting it with another sparkling beverage, such as sparkling cider or soda water. However, remember that the drink’s taste and texture will be different.

How many mimosas can I make with one bottle of sparkling wine?

The number of mimosas you can make with one bottle of sparkling wine depends on the size of your glasses and how much orange juice you use. As a general rule of thumb, a standard 750 ml bottle of sparkling wine should yield about 6-8 mimosas.
