A simple mimosa recipe made from Champagne and orange juice and a splash of Grand Marnier Liqueur. Serve Mimosas for a weekend breakfast or brunch or special occasion.
While a mixed drink is not usually associated with early morning breakfasts and brunches, a Mimosa is one exception to the rule.
The other may be a Bloody Mary.
The addition of a splash of champagne can add festiveness to your special occasion.
Mimosas are an ideal cocktail recipe to serve for an Christmas brunch, Easter brunch, Mother's day brunch, bridal brunch, breakfast in bed or just about any special occasion that is scheduled for earlier in the day.
Dress up this brunch drink by serving it in a champagne glass, champagne flute or any other tall stemware and garnishing with a slice of strawberry.

If you are wondering about the ratio of champagne to orange juice, it is mostly based on your own personal tastes. You can do equal amounts of Champagne and orange juice or even as high as 1 part orange juice to 3 parts champagne, topped with a splash of Grand Marnier.How many guests will a bottle of champagne and a 1 quart carton of orange juice serve? In my experience you should be able to serve about 6-8 people with 12 ounce servings with ice in each glass with this recipe for mimosas.
