Mother’s Day is just around the corner and time to show mom just how much she means to you. She’s been there for you with all her love & support, guiding, nurturing and helping you to become the best you can be. My mom was certainly all that and more and I miss her dearly.

We always celebrated the day with a big brunch, French Toast, Eggs Benedict, Almond Danish (her favorite), fruit and, of course, mimosas.

Mimosas are one of the easiest cocktails to make, containing just 2 ingredients, making them flavorful and light, perfect for a morning cocktail hour.

All you need are champagne flutes or prosecco glasses, I bought the ones shown here and love them. Get the freshest orange juice you can find, as the main flavor in this cocktail is the orange juice, as it will make all the difference in the world. Pour the flute 1/3 full of orange juice then top with champagne, sparkling wine or prosecco. And just a note, you can go with an inexpensive sparkling wine or prosecco, sticking with something that costs between $10-$20, and it will be just as delicious.

These sparkling mimosas are great for other special occasions too, like Christmas, New Years, graduation, anniversaries and weddings. And since they’re so light, it’s the perfect summertime cocktail. I always imagine myself sitting in a villa overlooking the ocean and sipping on a mimosa. Well, we can dream, right?

Want to change it up a bit? Make a DIY mimosa bar with different add-ons for guests to make their own. Besides the champagne and orange juice, have a few liqueurs available such as Chambord, Peach Schnapps and Grand Marnier. Add in some juices like cranberry and pomegranate, bowls of berries, and an ice bath with a small container of orange sherbet and a small cookie scoop.  I love topping mine with orange sherbet but I bet lemon would be awesome too!
