what are the ingredients for mimosa?... :)

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

    1. 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.

        1. re: Shamibabylove

          pomegranites compliment it perfectly I find.

        2. re: gina

          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.

        3. My Sunday brunch drinkā€¦ besides the orange juice and champagne I like to put a little grenadine syrup.

          1. try it with a splash of Stoli Razz to kick it up!!!!!!!!!!!!!

              hehe Stoli Razz is my favorite, thanx for the tip vegas (what happens in vegas stays in vegas :).. sorry couldn't resist

            2. 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.

                my mother used to drink Chanpale...haven't seeen it in years. Do they still make it?

                1. re: Candy

                  fantastic question... tried googling looks like even google is out stock of chanpale

                  1. re: Candy

                    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

                    1. re: dhedges53

                      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...
