Grand Orange Mimosa Recipe

Just say no to plain boring mimosas! We created this Grand Orange Mimosa recipe with freshly squeezed orange juice and Grand Marnier to transform an ordinary mimosa into an outstanding one.

A traditional mimosa can be kind of boring. They are good and all, (I mean, we’re talking bubbles, so you really can’t go wrong) but why settle for good when you can add a few more ingredients and get a Grand Orange Mimosa that will knock your socks off?

What is the best orange juice for mimosas?

A Grand Orange Mimosa starts with freshly squeezed orange juice. Please don’t skip this critical step. Buy freshly squeezed juice at the store or take a few extra minutes to squeeze your own juice. Any kind of orange will work. I’ve tried Blood Oranges, Cara Cara Oranges and just plain navel oranges. The only difference between them is how much simple syrup you use – less for sweeter oranges, more for tart oranges. (So if you’re counting, that’s a lot of mimosas, right? But it’s all in the name of recipe testing. What can I say? This mimosa recipe is solid. I’m a giver like that.)

What other ingredients do you need to make this Grand Orange Mimosa recipe?

Not many. I amped up the orange taste with Grand Marnier, added a little simple syrup and topped it off with my favorite Prosecco. You can use your favorite sparkling wine – just make sure it is on the drier side otherwise your drink will be too sweet.

Once you try this tasty cocktail, you’ll never drink a plain mimosa again. It’s easy to make but totally worth a couple of extra steps.  Sunday brunch can’t come soon enough. Who’s coming over?

Grand Orange Mimosas for everyone.

Having a large group for brunch? Set up an Easy DIY Mimosa Bar and let your guests do the work!

    Yeah! Why just have a plain ol’ mimosa????? This looks delish. I will buy a ticket for your
    train on this one. Ha! How many mimosas do you get with each ticket? I might have to buy at least two tickets.

    I don’t normally talk about ME, but please make note of the slight name change from Wild Goose Tea. New web design too—whoopeeee and am adding some new features.
