Best Champagne for Mimosas

If you’re serving a large crowd for a gathering, it’s always good to give guests a variety. In fact, it’s a fun place to experiment- and the best Champagne for mimosas isn’t always a Champagne at all – look for a Prosecco instead.

Or try a bottle of Cava, which is a dry Spanish sparkling wine. Champagne is French, Prosecco is Italian. Any way you serve these strawberry mimosas, they are sure to be a hit!

Frequently Asked Questions

Can you make strawberry mimosas ahead of time?

These mimosas are best made as soon as you are ready to serve them so that they are chilled and the champagne still has bubbles. If you like, you can make the strawberry puree a few hours ahead of time, just transfer it to a bowl and keep it covered in the fridge.

Do strawberries and champagne go together?

Do they ever! These strawberry lemonade mimosas create such a refreshing, summery combination. You’ve got to try these incredible Drunken Strawberries while you’re at it – fresh berries soaked in Champagne or Rosé.

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 Champagne individually. Champagne loses bubbles after 2-3 days in the fridge.
  • Freeze – To turn these strawberry mimosas into a frozen slushy by freezing and blending!
