    Champagne and Orange Juice. Very simple. And a Pointsettia is Champagne and Cranberry.

      If you have sweet Champagne, try it with fresh-squeezed grapefruit juice. I once somehow ended up with a bottle of Moet & Chandon Nectar, which I'm not a big fan of, but found it was perfect with the grapefruit juice.

        would any fresh fruits complement mimosa?... my friend served fresh strawberries and green seedless grapes withit ( i personally disliked the combination), it didn't bring out the taste, it was a weird mixture.

        Gina i will definitely try the grapefruit juice, thank you for the tip.

          pomegranites compliment it perfectly I find.

          Try champagne and Alize. A little thicker but very intoxicating!

            I would think that Alize would be a little too strong. I guess this fabulous concoction is not for sunday brunch :) but for a friday night with special someone.

          My Sunday brunch drink… besides the orange juice and champagne I like to put a little grenadine syrup.

              If you are on a budget, try my wonderful recipe. Tang and Champale!!!

              Just kidding.

              Mandarin orange juice and Taitinger champagne would be my serious recommendation.

                    I haven't seen that tasty beverage in years either. LOL Come to think of it, I haven't seen Tang in years, but I'm sure it's still out there

                      They're both still around! Pabst makes Champale now (plus just about every other cheap-o beer etc. you can think of), and Kraft owns Tang. But I'll let someone else be the guineau pig...
