Why You’ll Love Bottomless Mimosas

  • Fun to drink and serve
  • Celebratory for showers and more
  • Perfect for summer
  • Customize to your tastes

Ingredients and Substitutions

  • Juice – First thing’s first! Fresh squeezed classic orange juice is best here, but see the variations below. If you need a shortcut, store-bought juice works just fine, of course!
  • Champagne or Prosecco – Prosecco is an Italian sparkling wine, but you can also use classic champagne or cava.
  • Orange Liqueur – Optional. Grand Marnier is a great orange liqueur option, but you can also try Cointreau or Triple Sec, or even bitters. 
  • Garnish – Optional, as well. Garnish with pretty fresh flower blooms, fresh fruits, or you can even use herbs like basil, rosemary or thyme.

Variations

  • Replace classic orange juice with grapefruit juice for a grapefruit mimosa, or use lemon, strawberry, cherry, cranberry and more.
  • Try different brands and styles of Prosecco to mix things up.
  • Serve blended- why not serve frozen mimosas?

How to Juice Citrus

If you don’t have a countertop juicer, there are several ways to juice your favorite citrus fruits easily!

Tips

  • For a large enough pitcher, choose something that holds at least 50 ounces. You’ll want an entire bottle of champagne (25 ounces) and an equal amount of juice.
  • We used these pretty jars with gold spouts for bitters and these glass carafes. These slender carafes are a little small for a full pitcher of bottomless mimosas, but worked well for our group.
  • Fresh Juice – I’m always a fan of a shortcut (store bought juice works just fine!) but fresh squeezed juice is worth the extra step!
  • Quality Champagne or Prosecco – A mimosa is made with  minimal ingredients, so allow each to shine.
  • Mimosas are best served chilled, without ice to water them down. Ensure your ingredients are chilled before serving your bottomless mimosas.
  • Want a creamier drink? Add a little sorbet to each glass before serving – check out these Sorbet Mimosas for the ultimate treat!
  • Use your favorite Champagne flutes, stemless or with an elegant stem. We love these!

Prosecco vs Champagne: Which is Better?

Prosecco is a great choice for mimosas, as it’s a little sweeter than traditional Champagne, but both work well. Prosecco is Italian, and Champagne is French. You can also consider Cava, a Spanish sparkling wine!

Similar to the suggestions in our guide to the Best Tequila for Margaritas, pricey bubbles aren’t necessary for mimosas. The sweet juice will disguise the nuance of higher end bottles.

Here’s a few of my favorite Prosecco bottles to try for your mimosas:

  • La Marca Prosecco – Crisp, not too sweet, affordable
  • Bisol Prosecco – Not too dry or too sweet, organically farmed
  • Josh Rosé Prosecco – A gorgeous pink that is pretty to serve

Frequently Asked Questions

What do bottomless mimosas mean?

A bottomless mimosa is a cocktail that is provided (often by a restaurant) at a flat rate, with unlimited refills.

How much mimosa do I need for 20 people?

If you’re hosting an event, it’s hard to know how to plan for how much food and alcohol your guests will consume.
Consider this: You’ll get between 6 and 8 mimosas out of every bottle of bubbles. For an event with 20 people, where each guest might have 2-3 drinks, plan to purchase up to eight bottles of prosecco.

How to Store

  • At Room Temperature – For up to two hours before and after serving.
  • Refrigerate – Prosecco generally loses its bubbles after about three days in the fridge.
  • Freeze – Turn these bottomless mimosas into a frozen slushy by freezing and blending!

Dietary Considerations

  • Gluten Free
  • Dairy Free
  • Nut Free
  • Vegan
