Below, I share what you need to know about a traditional mimosa and then I go over the recipe.

Here are the Key Essentials to Making a Traditional Mimosa:

  • Ingredients – Use one part orange juice, and one part champagne, which is about two and a half ounces each.
  • Champagne type – Purchase either a true Champagne, preferably Brut, or try to find a Cava or dry Prosecco. To be honest though, Cava and Prosecco are less-expensive options.
    • Note: There are three types of Prosecco: sparkling, semi-sparkling or still. If you use Prosecco, make sure to get sparkling.
  • Juice types – The best types of juice to include in this drink are: orange, cranberry, blood orange, grapefruit, pineapple, pomegranate or blackberry juices.
  • Fruit types – The best fruit pairings to include are: orange slices, raspberries or strawberries.

The Number of Mimosas in a Bottle of Sparkling Wine:

  • In every standard bottle (750 ml), you can make 6-8 mimosas.

Appropriate Stemware For Mimosas:

  • Since sparkling wine is involved, mimosas are traditionally served in champagne flutes, which helps to preserve the bubbles and dry taste of the wine.
  • Use classic stemmed glasses or stemless glasses.

How to Make this Apple Cider Mimosa:

  • For this specific cocktail, I add two and a half ounces or so of apple cider, one apple slice and one half of a fresh rosemary sprig. The smell of the rosemary just enhances the overall flavors of the drink, but doesn’t change it.
  • NOTE: If you want a sweeter mimosa, add a bit more apple cider. And if you want it less sweet, just add more prosecco.
