Mock Mimosa

Honesty Moment… I’ve never had a real Mimosa.  However from what everyone (including the internet) tells me, it’s a combination of Champagne and Orange Juice.  Bubbly and delicious and the perfect excuse to drink in the morning!

I’ve been making these Mock Mimosa’s for the better part of 10 years now and love them.  Simple, fun and the perfect drink for a brunch or party. 

It really doesn’t get any easier than this.  And the best part is that you can tweak it to your taste preferences. 

Ginger Ale & Orange Juice combo tastes fantastic and you can adjust your proportions to your liking.  Really just go with the one that you prefer.  You really can’t go wrong with this simple fun drink!

I generally serve this drink at baby showers, girls nights, brunches and breakfast.  It’s a fun and tasty twist on traditional orange juice that will have you hooked at your first sip!

Mock Mimosa

Prep Time: 2 minutes

Total Time: 2 minutes

Yield: 4 glasses


  • 3 Cups Ginger Ale, chilled
  • 1 Cup Orange Juice, chilled


  1. Pour 1/4 cup of orange juice into each cup.
  2. Next, pour 3/4 cup of Ginger Ale into each glass.
  3. Serve immediately.


A true Mimosa is a 3:1 ration. 3 parts Champaign and 1 part orange juice. I however find that to be lacking in the orange juice flavor department and generally make mine 1:1 ratio. 1/2 cup Sprite or Ginger Ale and 1/2 cup Orange juice.

Play with it before your party to see which you prefer. Enjoy!
