A Mimosa is the perfect accompaniment to a sophisticated brunch thanks to its refreshing blend of Prosecco
and orange juice. A classic Mimosa calls for equal parts prosecco (or any sparkling wine) to fresh orange juice. Always add the sparkling wine first, as this way the cocktail mixes together itself instead of having to stir, which allows the wine to become flat. A welcome addition to any Mimosa may be a splash of orange liqueur, such as Triple Sec or Gran Marnier. A Mimosa is a classic and can be found on almost every cocktail menu.
The famous Bellini cocktail was invented in Harry’s Bar, Venice, in 1934 and is named after the famous Italian Renaissance painter Giovanni Bellini. Another light prosecco cocktail that goes down well at brunch, a Bellini is simply a mixture of peach juice and fizz. It is best made with pureed fresh peaches that you pour first into a chilled glass before adding the prosecco. If you’re feeling extra fancy, add a peach slice to garnish. This is a real crowd pleaser.
