10 Champagne Cocktails You Can Have For Breakfast

A mimosa is a quintessential element to being a fancy lady at brunch. That, a frilly sundress, and a heaping platter of buttermilk pancakes that I will eat with my hands with no restraint.

But the food bloggers of the world have concocted champagne cocktails even more delicious than a traditional mimosa. I have scoured the Internet to find the ten best fizzy drinks so that we can all be the coolest cats at brunch. (Ingredients lists taken from each source.)

  1. “I pureed a package of strawberries, a package of raspberries and juiced two oranges. I didn’t strain the berries, but I did slightly strain the orange juice. Each yielded about 1/3 – 1/2 of a small mason jar. With about one – two teaspoons per drink, this was just about enough to cover two bottles of champagne. I set the mason jars out with a teaspoon in each and my champagne bar was ready for my guests to mix up their own delicious fresh fruit champagne cocktails.”
