Virgin Mimosa Ingredients

This is a very easy, two-ingredient, non-alcoholic mimosa recipe. You only need these two simple ingredients:

Squeezed Orange Juice – Using fresh orange juice will give you the best drink. The next best is using cold-pressed orange juice from your local grocery store.

Orange Sparkling Beverage – We recommend using SANPELLEGRINO Italian Sparkling Fruit Beverage for this recipe. You want to use a carbonated drink that has an orange flavor and some sweetener.

Best Orange Seltzers

For this recipe, we recommend using an orange-flavored seltzer that is sweetened. The sweetness adds to the flavor of the virgin mimosa and is the closest thing you’ll get to one with Champagne.

Tips for Making a Virgin Mimosa

Use Champagne Glass – This glass is designed to preserve carbonation. They are perfect for celebrations and the only glass a mimosa should be served in! These are the ones we used.

Make a Batch – If you’re serving many people, mix the mimosa up in a larger pitcher then pour it into each glass.

Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice – To make them the best, use squeezed orange juice. Make this the day before and store it in the refrigerator. 

Cold Ingredients – You want the orange juice and bubbly orange seltzer chilled, so make sure they’re both cold before serving. You can leave them in the refrigerator overnight.

Chill The Glass – Since you don’t add ice to this drink, chilling the Champagne flutes helps create a smoother, super-cold cocktail when sipping.
