Best Virgin Mimosa

Create a style of hosting that works for you

For me, life is rich and delicious, and I really like a lot of people in our home.  But I’ve also learned that piling too much on my plate is not always fun. Having gone from entertaining almost every weekend to maybe once a month now, is perfect for me. Throw in a little bit of hospitality here and there, taking a meal, bringing a potluck dish, doing a little something for others.

You really have to figure out what hosting looks like for you and your family, and then do it! Create a style that works for you.

Celebration and being exhuberant is a wonderful thing. And Mother’s Day just might be that simple party that you are wanting to host.

What is the difference between a Bellini and a mimosa?

For a Mimosa, you typically add orange juice and Cointreau to a champagne flute (or tall glass) and stir to mix. You then fill the glass with chilled champagne or sparkling wine. For this recipe (non-alcoholic) you add limeade and Sprite!

The Bellini is a drink similar to a Mimosa, but it’s made with a peach puree. YUM!

How to make a mimosa

Normally to make 1 mimosa cocktail, in a champagne flute, you combine chilled sparkling wine, chilled orange juice, and 1 tablespoon Grand Marnier or triple sec.

But to make a Virgin Mimosa, I’ve changed it up to orange juice, Limeade (or lemonade), a splash of “sparkly” and then don’t forget to add sugar to the rim.

So refreshing and good!

  1. Love your updated pics. This recipe sounds really good too. I just went to send my clam chowder recipe to someone and was like, “how do I not have pictures…has it been that long since I’ve posted it”….time to re-do. lol.

    I like lots of people but I also really much rather prefer a bit smaller group.

    My youngest works on Mothers Day so today after both girls get off work (they are working at the same coffee shop) we are heading into Portland for a few hours.

  2. These look yummy and I am all about simple hospitality. 
    Happy Mothers Day to you Sandy!!!! 

  3. Thanks for posting this simple recipe. I craved oranges and orange juice my entire pregnancy too! Also had a baby girl. I am not really much of a drinker, so this is a great alternative to the alcoholic version.

  4. Ooh so pretty, thanks!!
    And congratulations in advance… What a beautiful time of year to welcome a baby. xo

  5. I loved virgin drinks when pregnant. Mimosas are a great one to have around.

  6. What a beautiful drink! I can’t wait to try a glass for myself!

  7. Lovely spring drink, Sandy & Jess! So pretty, too. Thank you for sharing. Pinning!

  8. I love that these are virgin!! Very fun for us we are one, under 21 and two, not into the alcoholic drinks anyway! Very fun and springy recipe!
