The Best Champagne for Mimosas

The best champagne for mimosas is typically a dry or semi-dry sparkling wine. Dry champagne is the most used type for making mimosas. The reason behind this choice is that dry champagne has a crisp and refreshing taste with minimal sweetness, which balances well with the sweetness of the fruit juice in the mimosa.

When choosing champagne for mimosas, it’s not necessary to splurge on an expensive bottle since the additional flavours from the fruit juice will influence the overall taste. Look for a reputable brand that fits your budget, and feel free to experiment with different types of champagne to find the one that best suits your taste preferences. Enjoy your mimosa-making adventures responsibly and always remember to drink in moderation!

Non-Alcoholic Mimosa

For a non-alcoholic Mimosa simply replace the champagne with sparkling water or ginger ale for a fizzy mocktail that everyone can enjoy. Whether you’re hosting a family-friendly brunch, a baby shower, or simply looking for a delicious and non-alcoholic option, this recipe is sure to be a hit with everyone.
