ALWAYS use a tall narrow glass for serving champagne cocktail of all kinds. Those lovely bubbles escape easily from a wide mouth glass with a short base. Champagne glasses are tall and narrow for just this reason.
I REALLY like this mimosa sweet with the rosemary. So I chose sparkling white wine for this mimosa recipe.
I chose inexpensive sweet Ballatore sparkling wine and I’m very happy with it. A white sparkling Prosecco wine will also work and should be easily available in stores.
IF you prefer LESS sweet. Choose extra dry Brut Champagne. White of course. If you prefer less sweet you may enjoy Brut better. They are about the same price.
- White Sparkling wine- Ballatore or prosecco are both fine
- white cranberry juice
- 4 fresh cranberries
- sprig fresh rosemary
You MAY have a bit of trouble locating white cranberry juice.
I finally had to resort to Amazon for plain white cranberry juice. The stores only had white cranberry juice blends.
I’ve linked pure white cranberry juice in the recipe card ingredients list for you if you can’t find it at the store.
The result is worth it. The transparent bubbling grace of this mimosa will grace your table setting and NOT overpower it.
How to make this mimosa:
This fall cocktail is incredibly simple to make. It’s just two ingredients and the garnishes.
TIPS: The Proportions:
You will want to adjust the amounts to suit yourself. Start with a one to one ratio of juice to wine. Some people enjoy 2 parts wine to one part juice.
I’m happier with only one part wine to two parts juice. I know. Call me a lightweight. Sweet and fizzy work for me.
How do you like this yummy brunch cocktail?
As you can see it’s just a simple poured champagne cocktail. No shaking or stirring. In fact, DON’T ever shake or stir sparkling wine or champagne. You’ll quickly lose that gorgeous fizz.
Fizzy Cranberry Wine Punch:
If you are serving about 8 people in 8 oz. glasses you will need:
- One 750 ml bottle of sparkling wine or champagne
- One 32 oz. bottle of white cranberry juice.
- fresh cranberries
- fresh rosemary
TIPS: The fizz will quickly escape a large punch bowl. Expect the fizz to last about two hours.
- Chilling everything in advance will help keep the bubbles longer. This means the punch bowl as well.
- Do not use ice. It will melt and dilute the bubbles and flavor.
- Pour the juice first and add the bubbly JUST before setting out the punch. Try to time it so the punch is served quickly after pouring the champagne.
- Float the cranberries on top of the punch and put the rosemary in the bottom of the bowl so infuse into the juice.
- Arrange fresh rosemary sprigs as desired around the punch bowl.

- On a separate small flat plate pour some simple syrup.
- Invert the glasses so just the rim is wetted with simple syrup.
