Making Mimosas Tonight: Champagne/sparkling wine Recs?

Wolfgang | Apr 7, 2008 02:51 PM


I'm making mimosas tonight. I've had them before on a few occasions, all with substandard orange juice and I'm sure cheap sparkling wine. I'll be using freshly squeezed orange juice from our tree. I need help with the other ingredient. I'm neither a connoisseur nor frequent drinker of sparkling wines. I know the traditional mimosa is made with champagne, but if I don't have to spend $30+ for champagne, I don't want to. I'm open to prosecco or other sparkling wines that you think will make for good mimosas.

Thanks for your suggestions.
