A nonalcoholic mimosa is a perfectly tangy way to start the day without worrying about the dangers of overdoing your brunchtime fun. While this orange juice and champagne cocktail is well-known for its minimal ingredients, adding different juices and syrups can help round out the flavors of a virgin version. Here are a few of these nonalcoholic mimosa recipes to take the place of your morning cup of joe.

Nonalcoholic Mimosa

Since the original mimosa involves just two ingredients, it might seem like it'd be rather difficult to create a similarly tasty drink without one of those components. Yet, there's actually a lot of ways you can personalize and metamorphose a nonalcoholic iteration to be just as delightful as the original breakfast and brunch staple.

Bright Yellow Virgen Mimosa Served at Brunch


  • 4 ounces orange juice, chilled
  • 4 ounces sparkling water, chilled
  • Ice
  • Orange, sliced for garnish


  1. In a champagne flute, combine orange juice and sparkling water.
  2. Add ice and stir.
  3. Garnish with an orange slice and enjoy.

Limeade Virgin Mimosa Recipe

For a drink that will provide you with all of your daily vitamin C, try out this limeade mimosa. This slightly sourer flavor is great for those who aren't entirely sold on orange juice and favor snacks like sour punch straws and war heads. Yields 10 servings.

  2. Fill a champagne flute with ice and pour in about 8 ounces of your mixture.
  3. Garnish with an orange wedge on the rim.

Tropical Virgin Mimosa

If you're a big fan of island fruits like pineapples and coconuts, then a tropical mimosa should be the next drink on your list to try. As many people already know, pineapple juice and orange juice make great bedfellows, and when mixed together into a virgin mimosa, a single sip will send you back to that cruise you took last summer.

  2. Add ice, if desired.
  3. Garnish with a pineapple cube and serve.

Ginger Nonalcoholic Mimosa Recipe

You can experiment adding ginger to your original mimosa recipe for a taste that's more robust than your average mimosa. This recipe calls for maple syrup and ginger ale as well to really combat the orange juice's overpowering citrus flavor. Yields 3 servings.
