When making a virgin mimosa, all you have to do is switch out the sparkling wine for an alcohol free sparkling wine, because the alcoholic mimosa recipe is the same.
How to Make a Non Alcoholic Mimosa
It might seem too simple, but let me explain. There is a wrong way to make mimosa – I’ve seen it. The only right way to make a mimosa mocktail is to start with sparkling wine. Everyone has their preferred amount of orange juice, but there is no going back from starting with too much orange juice.
If you start with orange juice, you will have to move it to a pitcher and call it a non alcoholic mimosa punch, because you’ll have to add so much sparkling that there will be lots of servings – salvageable for a party.
Here’s how to make a non alcoholic mimosa the best way: Fill a tall champagne flute about 3/4 full with non-alcoholic sparkling wine. Slowly add a little bit of orange juice at a time until you like the ratio.
Sparkling White Grape Juice vs Non Alcoholic Sparkling Wine
Sparkling white grape juice is simply carbonated grape juice, sometimes with sugar added. Some alcohol free sparkling wine can be similar, but overall the wine tends to have less sugar than the grape juice.
However, with popularity growing in alcohol free spirits, wine, and beer, more attention is being given to how non-alcoholic sparkling wine is made.
Many alcohol free sparkling wines are dealcoholized, or alcohol-removed, which means they were made as alcoholic wine first, then the alcohol was removed through a specialized process. More sophisticated drinks are being produced this way, and have proven to make better non-alcoholic mimosas than sparkling grape juice.
Potential Health Benefits of Fresh Orange Juice
Orange juice contains a lot of sugar, so it has gotten a bad rap with many people who are health-conscious and avoiding carbs and sugar.
However, oranges and its citrus juice contain several health benefits. Antioxidants, like vitamin C and flavonoids, help protect cells against damage that might lead to serious health issues long term. Fiber helps with digestion and lowers cholesterol. Potassium helps control your blood pressure.
In this non-alcoholic mimosa recipe, only a little orange juice is used, so use your best judgement on whether or not the pros exceed the cons.

Here’s what a friend recently shared about having non-alcoholic mimosas at her baby shower:
“When I walked into the baby shower, I was so excited to see so many friends from all over come together. It made me feel really special. Pretty soon I realized that almost everyone had a drink in their hand except for me. I wasn’t sure if I should feel left out or not – it was my baby shower.
Then my friend suggested we all have a toast to the baby, and offered me a virgin mimosa. At first I hesitated because I wasn’t sure if it would taste good or not. But then I decided to try it and it was actually really good!
It was such a fun way to celebrate the baby shower, and it made me feel special that I was able to join in on the toast with everyone else.”
