How To Make Mimosas

To make these, first we line the rim. This is an optional step that you can skip if you like, but I enjoy it because it just makes these look so festive.

Slide an orange around the rim of the glass to moisten it, then dip it in sugar.

What kind of champagne for mimosas

Then, just pour the cranberry juice into a glass and then top it off with champagne. Add in your cranberries and enjoy! You can add a sprig of fresh rosemary for garnish as well.

What Kind of Champagne for Mimosas?

The best bubbly to make mimosa’s with is Brut Champagne because they are dry and have less sugar. Because this recipe uses juice you want to pair it with something dry. Prosecco or A Cava are also great choices, but the truth is, you can use whichever champagne you like.
