A mimosa is the total queen of breakfast alcoholic drinks! This version swaps the typical mimosa ingredients for delicious rainbow sherbert for a brunch cocktail that is high on fun and taste!
Ask someone to brunch and you can bet they will be eyeing the mimosa menu the moment you sit down. I know I do. I love finding a traditional mimosa on the menu but I definitely love seeing fun plays on the classic mimosa recipe too. This one is a combination of rainbow sherbert and either champagne or prosecco.
Let’s start with…how to make a mimosa!
A mimosa typically combines juice and champagne. The traditional mimosa recipe you find just about anywhere is orange juice and champagne. Since it is lower in cost usually, you will see a prosecco mimosa on the menu in a lot of places too.
So, what is the best champagne for a mimosa?
That really depends. A dry champagne (brut) is usually the standard but a lot of people prefer a less dry or even a proscecco which is typically a little sweeter. I don’t think there is a right or wrong answer but should be a matter of choice.
A mimosa is so easy to make that it almost seems to silly to actual write up a mimosa recipe. For this recipe, I like to put sugar on the rim of my glass for fun. Just dip the top of the glass in juice or rim it with an orange. Then, dip into sugar.
Rainbow sherbert is so ideal for this because it still offers that citrusy taste similar to orange juice.
Once you have the sherbert in the glass (I use about a full scoop to scoop and a half), pour your champagne or prosecco in.
These rainbow sherbert mimosas make the ultimate bridal shower drink and are so perfect for a girl’s day brunch too.

- 1 quart rainbow sherbert
- 1 bottle dry sparkling wine, chilled

- Proscecco is fine in place of a dry sparkling wine or champagne. It will just make a sweeter mimosa.
