- Can I make this recipe ahead of time?
Yes, you can make the mimosa mixture a few hours before serving. Just be sure to keep it refrigerated until you’re ready to use it.
- Can I use bottled orange juice?
While freshly squeezed orange juice is best for this recipe, you can use bottled orange juice in a pinch. Just be sure to choose a high-quality brand with no added sugar or preservatives.
- Can I use a different sweetener?
Yes, you can use agave nectar or maple syrup instead of honey if you prefer.
- Can I add alcohol to this recipe?
Yes, you can add champagne or sparkling wine to make a traditional mimosa.
- Can I use a different type of citrus?
Yes, you can use grapefruit or blood orange juice instead of orange juice for a different flavor.
- Can I make this recipe in a blender?
You can, but the sparkling water will lose its fizz. It’s best to mix the ingredients in a pitcher.
If you don’t have champagne flutes, you can use regular glasses or mason jars to serve the Virgin Mimosa. Just be sure to garnish each glass with an orange slice for a festive touch.
For a sweeter drink, you can add more honey to the mixture. Taste the mimosa before serving and adjust the sweetness to your liking.
This recipe is perfect for brunch, but it’s also a great drink to serve at parties or on hot summer days. You can double or triple the recipe to make a large batch for a crowd.
