Is there anything more celebratory than a mimosa? Not much! Hosting a mimosa bar is the best way to allow guests to create a variety of flavor combinations and serve themselves at their leasure.

These Prosecco mimosas are wonderful for serving at showers, summer soirées, and so much more. Mimosas can be customized to your tastes, with fresh, simple ingredients.

Even better? Guests can serve themselves and that keeps your hands free for other hosting duties, or simply just enjoying your time with friends and family. What could be better than that?

Ingredients and Substitutions to Make Prosecco Mimosas

  • Juice – Fresh squeezed juice is best. If you need a shortcut, store bought works just fine, of course!
  • Prosecco – Prosecco is an Italian sparkling wine that tends to be a touch sweeter than traditional Champagne.
  • 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- a frozen mimosa sounds amazing!

Tips

  • Make a Pitcher – Use the sliding bar to multiply servings in the printable recipe card!
  • Use your favorite Champagne flutes – stemless or with an elegant stem. We love these!
  • Fresh Juice – While I’m always a fan of a shortcut (and store bought juice works just fine!) the joy of fresh squeezed juice in a mimosa is out of this world!
  • Quality Prosecco – Because a mimosa is made with such minimal ingredients, you’ll want to allow each to shine. Choose the best ingredients you can!

Best Prosecco for Mimosas

Prosecco is a classic choice for mimosas because it’s a touch sweeter than traditional Champagne bottles. Prosecco is Italian, whereas Champagne is from a specific region in France. Another unique option is Cava, which is a Spanish sparkling wine!

Much like the suggestions in my guide to the Best Tequila for Margaritas, I don’t think you should use pricey Prosecco for mimosas. The juice disguises much of the nuance you’d see otherwise.

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 on your bar

Frequently Asked Questions

Are mimosas better with Champagne or Prosecco?

That’s a personal preference, of course. Champagne will be a little dryer and less sweet than Prosecco, so it might depend on your juice to bubbly ratio! Prosecco also tends to be a little less expensive, which can be a great fit for a mimosa bar.

Is Prosecco sweet or dry?

Prosecco wines are actually dry, and even extra dry Brut style. However, the grape is sweeter and lends an overall slightly sweeter style to these bottles.

How to Store

  • At Room Temperature – For up to two hours before and after serving.
  • Refrigerate – Make each mimosa individually. This way you can store the juice and Prosecco individually. Prosecco generally loses its bubbles after about three days in the fridge.
  • Freeze – Turn these mimosas into a frozen slushy by freezing and blending!

Dietary Considerations

  • Gluten Free
  • Dairy Free
  • Nut Free
