Why This Is The BEST Mimosa Mocktail

  • It is made with alcohol removed, non alcoholic champagne. There is no grapey sparkling ciders, sodas, or carbonated waters in this recipe.
  • 2 easy ingredients: All you need is non alcoholic champagne and orange juice. 3 ingredients if you include a fresh orange slice garnish.
  • A quick classic mocktail: Just pour, garnish, and serve! You don’t even need to stir mimosas because the bubbles in the champagne do that for you.

What Is A Mimosa Mocktail?

Mimosas are a beautiful orange cocktail made with equal parts champagne and orange juice. It is light, bubbly, with a slight citrus flavor. They are popular to drink with breakfast and brunch or at events like baby showers, weddings, mother’s day, and other special occasions.

This recipe is the alcohol free mocktail version using non alcoholic champagne NOT sparkling wine. I find that sparkling wine is super sweet with an odd grape flavor. Definitely opt for the alcohol removed champagne and you won’t even know your mimosa is a mocktail.

Non Alcoholic Mimosa Mocktail Ingredients

This recipe is only 2 ingredients, 3 if you include the garnish. Below are a few notes and things to consider when making a classic Mimosa Mocktail.

  • Non Alcoholic Champagne: I recommend Fre Non Alcoholic Sparkling Brut (Brut refers to the sweetness level of the NA champagne. It is dryer than a Prosecco).
  • Orange Juice: Feel free to squeeze your own or use bottled orange juice. Be sure to opt for pulp free with minimal amounts of sugar.
  • Orange Slices: Wash the oranges thoroughly before slicing. Feel free to omit this if you do not want to garnish your mimosa.

PRO TIP: Chill the ingredients ahead of time so you do not have to add ice and risk the mimosas becoming watered down. Another option is to make ice cubes with the orange juice.

GLASSWARE: Mimosas are typically served in champagne flutes. They also look great in wine glasses or other stemmed glassware like coupe glasses.

What Kind Of Non Alcoholic Champagne Is Best?

Non Alcoholic and Alcohol Removed Spirits have become increasingly popular, including Non Alcoholic Champagnes. Be sure the bottle says 0.0% ABV, anything else may not be truly alcohol free.

My favorite brands are Lyre’s and Fre by Sutter Homes (and what I used in this recipe). Others I recommend are Surely, Gruvi, Joyus, and Noughty.

Non Alcoholic Champagnes can be ordered online, found at your local CVS stores (it is one of the few places that has NA options), at your local grocery store, and even in some liquor stores in their Spiritless aisle.

Non Alcoholic Mimosa Champagne Substitutes

If you want to opt out of using 0.0% ABV non alcoholic champagne, you have a few options:

  • Sparkling water or mineral water- either plain or flavors like lemon, lime, grapefruit, etc.
  • Ginger ale- this will add a sweet ginger bite to the orange.
  • Sparkling wines- the variety using white grapes is best in this recipe. It will give the mimosa a grapier flavor.
  • Fruit Juices- apple, white grape, peach juice, pineapple juice, or other light color and flavored juices.
  • Pop (Soda if you are not from the midwest)- 7 Up or Sprite.
