I like to have a sparkling drink at my potlucks or brunches, I usually go for sparkling (pre-made) lemonade or something similar, but if you want something a bit different, a bit, em, special, this super easy mock mimosa is just as easy as pouring sparkling lemonade into a glass but a bit more special. This is the perfect spring drink to serve for a fun brunch, on Easter morning, or any time you need something fun to drink. It’s what I’d call a family friendly Mormon mimosa.
How it’ll make your life easier
This mimosa mocktail fits the bill. It’s just 2 ingredients, one of which I’ve started to keep on hand (orange juice concentrate) and another that I can find at any grocery store-grapefruit soda (Fresca is my fave). It’s citrus-y, bubbly, delicious, exciting, and super easy. It’s so easy, yet fun that you can make it for yourself on a slow morning (or any time of the day) or serve at a brunch or Easter celebration.
Why I love this recipe
- Sparkling citrus soda
- Orange juice
How to make this mimosa mocktail
This is so easy, pour 2/3 parts Fresca or other citrus soda into a champagne glass
Then add 1/3 part orange juice.
Garnish with a fresh orange slice, or not depending on how much time and effort you have to put into it. This is pretty much a 2 minute drink that’s pretty, delicious, and perfect for spring.
Add fresh orange slices to garnish.
What bubbly drink to use?
I’d highly recommend using a citrus flavored soda/sparkling water. Fresca is my fave, because it’s grapefruit and inexpensive, and bubbly. But you can use whatever you have on hand.
What Orange Juice do I use?
This is 100% up to you, your budget, and what you’ve got on hand. In a perfect, planned out spring world, I’d probably buy a handful of juicy, ripe oranges and juice them myself. But I’m not the best planner, so I used orange juice concentrate that was already in my freezer. It’s easy, inexpensive, and lasts a long time. You can also buy your fave pre-made OJ!
Ways to repurpose these ingredients
- (orange juice) add it to a pork marinade, make a salad dressing with it, or freeze leftovers. If you don’t want to drink it right away!
- (sparkling soda) Tart Cherry Spritzer (use instead of sparkling water)
