The Mimosa is an old classic. We generally think of it as orange juice and champagne, but there’s also a touch of triple sec in the actual recipe.
This drink is usually thought of as a brunch cocktail, and it is great for that – low on alcohol, high on vitamin C. But it’s also good anytime you’re wanting a drink that’s light in flavor as well as alcohol. It makes for a nice aperitif, too.
- 1/2 ounce triple sec
- 1 1/2 ounce fresh squeezed orange juice
- 3 1/2 ounce chilled champagne
Build the ingredients in order in a champagne flute. Garnish with an orange slice.
