Deconstructed Mimosa

Equal parts orange juice and sparking wine (or whatever ratio you like!), mimosas are a refreshing drink to enjoy for brunch, or as an after dinner cocktail. In our version we made it a bit more fun by freezing the orange juice first. This allows the drink to stay icy cold, while the juice slowly melts in the champagne – creating a slightly different taste with each sip.


Freeze orange juice in silicone ring molds, or whatever shape you like – just make sure that they will be able to fit into the glasses you’re going to use.  Pop them out just before you’re ready to serve, and place in each glass. Top up with the sparkling wine of your choice (or even club soda if you like!). Mimosa2

Freezing the juice first keeps you drink chilled the entire time, as well it gives the drink a different taste with each sip since the juice slowly melts.
Prep Time 2 hrs
Total Time 2 hrs
Servings 4


  • 2 cups orange juice
  • 1 bottle sparkling wine or champagne like Prosceco


  • Freeze orange juice in silicone ring molds, or whatever shape you like - as long as they can fit into the glasses you plan on using to serve.Fill only halfway, about 1/4 cup.
  • When ready to serve, unmold frozen juice and place one into each cocktail glass.
  • Top with sparkling wine of choice.


If you find organic sparkling wine, like the Italian Prosecco it is free of sulphites.
Instead of orange juice, try another kind of juice like cranberry or strawberry.
