  • Instead of sparkling apple cider, you can use your favorite brand of non-alcoholic champagne.
  • Optionally, you can rim the glasses with sugar for a decorative touch. Wet the rim with a bit of orange juice, then dip in granulated cane sugar.
  • If you don’t have access to fresh oranges, you can purchase bottled orange juice to use in this recipe.
  • In a pinch, you can also use ingredients like lime juice, blood oranges, white grape juice, or the juice of other citrus fruits (don’t use lemon juice though as it won’t be sweet enough).

Recipe FAQs

Can this Mimosa Mocktail be made with other juices?

Absolutely! Of course, it would not be considered a true mimosa, but any flavorful juice of your choice would be delicious. Try cranberry juice or pomegranate juice to mix things up a bit and add it to your drink lineup for new, fun options!

Can I make this drink ahead of time?

This easy mimosa mocktail is best made just before serving to preserve the freshness and sparkling nature of the drink.

Should a mimosa mocktail be served with ice cubes?

It depends. A regular mimosa does not usually have ice cubes. So, try to chill the ingredients so the drink is cold when served. Otherwise, you can use ice cubes but they will dilute the flavors.
