Mimosas for Everyone! 2 Mocktails to Try

Actions

Everything's better at brunch, right?! And while mimosas are the meal's classic go-to, there are times when champagne is a no-go. (Especially when you're with friends who don't drink, mamas-to-be, kids, etc. ... you get it!)

That's when a good mocktail recipe comes in handy. Since champagne has a fairly complex flavor, the key is to make sure to bring plenty of flavor with your other ingredients. This means that you can — and should — get creative with your fruit juices and not limit yourself to classic orange juice. Say cheers to two of our fave options:

Pineapple Ginger Mimosa Mocktail

Crush a 1" piece of fresh ginger into a measuring cup and add in 1 cup of pineapple juice. Chill for 15-30 minutes. Combine 3 oz of the ginger-infused pineapple juice with 3 ounces sparkling water for each drink. Garnish with a pineapple wedge and a piece of candied ginger.

Peach Thyme Mimosa Mocktail

Gently muddle several sprigs of fresh thyme into the bottom of a measuring cup and add in 1 cup peach nectar. Chill for 15-30 minutes. Combine 3 ounces of the thyme-infused peach nectar with 3 ounces sparkling water for each drink. Garnish with a slice of peach and a sprig of fresh thyme. We'll drink to that!

It's not a summer party without a pitcher of sangria. If you're new to the sangria scene, it's a refreshing combo of wine and fruit juices, with a bit of extra sweetness to amp up the fruity fun.
