Ingredients and Substitutions to Make Sorbet Mimosas

  • Sparkling Lemonade – Add another layer of flavor and sparkle to your mimosa with sparkling lemonade!
  • Champagne (or Prosecco) – It’s the star of the show. See below for the best champagne options!
  • Sorbet – Or sherbet. Choose a flavor that works well with the fruity flavors of mimosas! Orange sherbet, pineapple, raspberry, strawberry and more would all be great options. For a creamier drink, choose sherbet, and for the lightest option, choose sorbet.
  • Garnish – Always optional as well. You can use fresh fruit, flowers, even herbs. We used a single raspberry for the pretty color and to align with the raspberry sorbet.

Variations

  • Replace the classic orange juice with any other favorite – like grapefruit mimosas.
  • Switch up the Champagne or Prosecco.
  • Serve a few options for sorbet or sherbet to give guests a fun variety. Homemade sorbet is so easy – try lime sorbet with this quick tutorial.
  • Find the pitcher recipe here at Bottomless Mimosas.

  3. Serve and enjoy immediately.

Tips

  • Use a Mini Cookie Scoop – to serve the perfect amount of sorbet into each mimosa glass.
  • Champagne flutes can be stemless, or you can choose an elegant stem.
  • Fresh Juice is the best way to make unforgettable mimosas. The fresh flavor is worth it – but if you take a shortcut and use store bought juice, I’ll never tell!
  • Quality Bubbles – My suggestion? Use a decent bottle, but don’t spend a lot, as the subtle flavor will be overpowered by the other ingredients in this mimosa. See my favorite options for Champagne or Prosecco below.

Best Champagne for Mimosas

Truthfully, the best Champagne for mimosas isn’t always Champagne – try a Prosecco instead. And much like my advice for the best tequilas for margaritas, don’t buy the most expensive bottle – all the subtle layers of bubbles and flavor won’t get to shine in this mimosa.

Champagne is French, and Prosecco is Italian. You can also try Cava, a dry Spanish sparkling wine. Any of these options are excellent!

Frequently Asked Questions

What’s the difference between sorbet and sherbet?

Sorbet is quite simply made from fruit juice and water. Sherbet, however, contains cream or milk. That makes it a little thicker, with a richer and creamier texture more like ice cream.

What makes sorbet creamy?

Even though there is no milk or dairy in sorbet, it will often have a surprisingly creamy texture. That’s because of the pectin and fiber in the fruit used to make certain sorbets. Quality sorbet really can taste remarkably like ice cream, without all the added sugar and fat!

How to Store

  • At Room Temperature – For up to two hours before and after serving.
  • Refrigerate – Make each mimosa individually so you can store the juice and alcohol individually. Champagne and Prosecco lose bubbles after about three days in the fridge.
  • Freeze – To turn these mimosas into frozen slushies by freezing and blending!

Julie’s Tips

  • Make a Pitcher – Use the sliding bar to multiply servings.
  • Fresh Juice – Fresh is best but you can always buy juice from the store, too! 
  • Bubbles – Don’t buy the cheapest bottle, but don’t buy the most expensive type either! The subtle layers and flavors of your bubbly won’t shine in most mimosa recipes.

    1. Hi Patti,
      Sparkling lemonade is so wonderful- it’s just like traditional lemonade but with a bubbly soda water! I often find it at stores like TJ Maxx or Marshall’s, but you can even order it from Amazon.
      Enjoy!
