Why You’ll Love Cranberry Orange Mimosa
There’s something so special about drinking a mimosa for breakfast on a holiday, isn’t there? (Or, let’s face it, any day.) I feel like it’s the only day it’s really acceptable to have cocktails for breakfast (even though I *may* do it more often than once a year).
This champagne cocktail has only 3 ingredients: cranberry juice, orange juice, and sparkling wine. I love using Prosecco (La Marca is my favorite brand), but you can use champagne or any sparkling wine you love. You can make this cocktail one at a time (if, say, you’re the only one who drinks mimosas at Christmas #truestory) or you can make a pitcher if you are watering a crowd.
Basically, this mimosas recipe is just juice, which is healthy and has some good antioxidants (hello, cranberry) and vitamin C (um, OJ) so it’s health food.
Therefore, cranberry orange mimosa cocktails are acceptable all year long, at any meal. Or at least that’s what I’ll tell myself when I pour a second glass. 🙂
3 Ingredient Mimosas
Cranberry Juice: Use your favorite, I like using 100% juice
Orange Juice: You can use fresh squeezed but I prefer bottled
Champagne: Or you can use Prosecco or sparkling wine
How to make Cranberry Mimosas
- Add the juices to a champagne flute.
- Top off with champagne.
- Garnish as desired!
Can you make mimosas in a pitcher?
Yes you can – just add the juices to the pitcher then add the sparkling wine right before serving.
