FAQS

Is this recipe considered to be a classic mimosa?

Classic mimosas are usually made with some type of juice like cranberry, orange or lemonade. This recipe substitutes sorbet for juice to create a sweet and sparkling treat when combined with your choice of champagne.

Can I turn this into a mocktail?

Sure! Turn this recipe into a non-alcoholic mocktail by using gingerale or lemon-lime soda instead of champagne. Kids and adults alike will love this celebratory drink!

What's the difference between sorbet and sherbet?

Sorbet is made with sugar and fruit, while sherbet usually adds milk to the mix. Either works well in this recipe. Find it near the ice cream in your local grocery store.

What type of champagne works best?

Any type of champagne works well, but I recommend using an extra dry type to offset the sweetness of the sorbet. You don't have to spend a lot of money on a fancy champagne since the flavor is enhanced by whatever sorbet you use.

Top Tips

  • Use a small scoop or spoon to scoop sorbet for best results.
  • Freeze the balls of sorbet individually ahead of time and they will last longer.
  • Pour the champagne into the glass after the sorbet or sherbet has been added.
  • Slowly pour the champagne to allow bubbles to form at the top.

Substitutions

The sky's the limit when choosing what type of sorbet or sherbet you'd like to use. Think about the theme of your event and try to find a color or flavor that matches. For example, try these ideas...

  • Halloween - blood orange or mango sorbet
  • New Year's Eve - lemon sorbet or pineapple sherbet with edible gold glitter
  • Valentine's Day - raspberry or strawberry sherbet
  • Christmas - lime sherbet with strawberry garnish
  • Bridal Brunch - choose a sorbet that's the color of the bridesmaid's dresses
