If there was ever a time for a good winter mimosa, it’s definitely Christmas morning!
What’s more festive than sitting around sipping some celebratory bubbly while the kids tear open packages and wrapping paper goes flying everywhere?
Bonus points if you’re sipping a Christmas morning mimosa in your cozy Christmas pjs and slippers while this easy Easy Cinnamon Roll Christmas Tree bakes in the oven.
It sounds like a dreamy way to start the most festive day of the year.
Ingredients and Kitchen Supplies
To make these holiday mimosas you’ll need:
- Juice- Both orange juice and cranberry juice. While you can use orange juice with pulp, I highly recommend using no pulp for the prettiest results.
- Bubbly- Sparkling white wine, champagne, or prosecco.
- Garnish- Optional garnishes include extra cranberries, orange slices, sprigs of rosemary.
You don’t need much in the way of kitchen supplies and tools for these just:
How to Make Christmas Morning Mimosas
1. Gather ingredients and supplies.
Make sure your juice and champagne are nice and chilled. Gather a pitcher and glasses.
2. Add equal parts of orange juice and cranberry juice.
Add the juices to the pitcher and stir them together.
3. Top with bubbly.
Pour bubbly into the pitcher if making them for a group and pour into glasses.
If making only a couple, pour the juice mixture into champagne glasses, filling halfway.
Then top with the champagne.
4. Serve and enjoy!
Top each glass with a little extra champagne if desired and garnishing with orange slices, fresh cranberries or other garnishes. Enjoy!
I don’t recommend planning for leftover Christmas mimosas.
The champagne will go flat if stored for too long.
What is the best type of champagne to use for mimosas?
Not actually champagne! Champagne is a very specific type of wine grown in the Champagne region of France. It’s very expensive! Go for a sparkling white wine like Prosecco or another sparkling white wine. Most people prefer dry white wine to balance out the sweetness in the juice, but you could use whatever you like.
Are mimosas meant for breakfast?
You bet! What better way to celebrate a morning occasion than with a cocktail made of orange juice (and cranberry juice in this case) and bubbly white wine?
Tips and Tricks
- This recipe makes 6 to 8 mimosas depending on your pour of course. If you aren’t having a group or won’t be drinking that much you could make individual mimosas by adding equal amounts of orange juice and cranberry juice to a glass and then topping it with champagne equal to the amounts of both juices.
- Make sure the juice and wine are nice and chilled before you make everything!
- Buy an extra bottle of champagne and pour a little bit extra into each glass after you serve the mimosas for a little extra bubble action.
