For a delicious breakfast, pair this with Mini Frittatas, or Strawberry Cheesecake Pancakes. It also goes well with Strawberry Melon Bruschetta or Bacon Wrapped Dates, if you’re in more of a munchie appetizer mood.

I’ve been drinking Mocktails since before it was a thing. Now people all over are finding reasons to refrain from alcoholic beverages, whether its for a season or long term.

Alcohol is never good for you, even moderate drinking. It can greatly affect your mental health, not to mention your physical health.

But I’m not here to convince you whether or not it’s right for you. I’m just here to give you an amazing alternative.

The trick is to find something that tastes just as good if not better than the original.

How to Make a Mimosa

A classic Mimosa is made up of just two ingredients, champagne, and orange juice.

The secret to the success of this recipe is two things:

Using non-alcoholic champagne, such as the Fre’ that I used here, makes it taste like a real mimosa. {YUM}

And the blood orange juice, freshly squeezed, just brings this up to another level. I love blood oranges! They’re beautiful in color and taste sweet and intensely orange with a hint of raspberry.

Tips

The instructions for a virgin Mimosa are pretty simple, I mean there’s only two ingredients, so it’s pretty straight forward, but here are some tips for success.

  • Choose oranges that have a little give to them. They shouldn’t be overly soft or overly firm.
  • Blood oranges look the same on the outside as a regular orange, but sometimes you’ll see a little variance of color in the skin, this is fine.
  • Roll the oranges on a counter top before juicing them, this helps the juice to release.
  • Using a citrus press gets every drop of juice out and you don’t have to worry about the seeds.

  • The proper ratio is equal parts champagne and juice, but taste it and adjust it to your personal preference.
  • Garnish with fresh rosemary, fresh thyme, or edible flowers. Note the flowers in these images are purely for looks and not edible.

Variations

There are so many flavor variations and options for a non-alcoholic Mimosa. Here are just a few options to change it up:

  • If you don’t have blood oranges, try your favorite variety, I really like Cara Cara oranges too.
  • You don’t have to use fresh-squeezed, but I highly recommend it!
  • Add a splash of pineapple juice for a tropical feel
  • Muddle a couple of raspberries in the bottom of the glass for added color and flavor.

Substitutions for Champagne

We’re already using the best substitute since the recipe calls for non-alcoholic champagne. Some other brands are St. Regis Brut, Chateau De Fleur, or Elivo Zero Zero Delux.

But if you’d rather pick another sparkling beverage, you have some options. Sparkling water, such as Perrier or La Croix make great options. You can even get them flavored to add to or complement the orange juice.

Another option would be a lemon-lime soda like Sprite or 7-Up. You could also use Ginger Ale, or Ginger Beer (even though it says ‘beer’ in the title, it’s not alcoholic).

Note that using any of these champagne substitutions will result in a different flavor, but still a great tasting beverage. Using soda definitely makes the end flavor more kid-friendly.

Champagne Vs. Sparkling Wine

Champagne is actually a sparkling wine that comes from the Champagne region of northeastern France. If it’s a bubbly wine from another region, it’s called Sparkling Wine

In this recipe, I used a Brut. Champagne and Sparkling Wine come in varying levels of sweetness. Brut means ‘dry, raw, unrefined’ in French. It’s a style of Champagne that is low in sugar.

For the alcoholic version, simply use your favorite Champagne or Sparkling Wine.

You won’t want to wait until Mother’s Day or Easter brunch to try this Mimosa Mocktail, and guess what? You don’t have to! Let’s pop the cork! Cheers!

Equipment

  • champagne flutes

Ingredients

  • 3 ounces blood orange juice freshly squeezed, about 2 oranges
  • 3 ounces non-alcoholic champagne

Instructions

  • Juice the oranges and pour into a champagne flute
  • Top off with non-alcoholic champagne. Garnish with fresh thyme, fresh rosemary, or edible flowers

Notes

  • Roll the oranges on a counter top before juicing them, this helps the juice to release.
  • Using a citrus press gets every drop of juice out and you don’t have to worry about the seeds.
  • The proper ratio is equal parts champagne and juice, but taste it and adjust it to your personal preference.
  • Try other varieties of oranges if you can’t find blood oranges. 
  • You don’t have to use fresh squeezed juice, but I highly recommend it for best flavor.
  • If you don’t want to use the nonalcohlic champagne, you can use sparkling water, Sprite, 7-Up, ginger ale, or ginger beer (ginger beer is NONacoholic). It will change the taste dramatically, but you will still have a tasty beverage.

  2. Thanks Sally! Me too, I love all the things about cocktails, but surprisingly I don’t like to be tipsy!

  3. This is such a good idea. I love the idea of having a brunch and still having the fun of a cocktail (without the alcohol). Sounds so yummy.
