Do you want to hear a joke? You can’t drink before noon. That’s cool, however, I’m going to enjoy some good drinks with triple sec and vodka at any time of the day. Add some more ingredients, and you can have some fantastic brunch cocktails. This is the orange juice mimosa recipe.

Can You Get Drunk Off Mimosa?

The short answer to this is yes, however, becoming drunk off mimosa would depend on a few factors.

How much alcohol is in your mimosa? How many mimosas do you plan on drinking? What is your body weight? All of these factors will determine if you will end up drunk.

Put the right amount of triple sec and vodka to your mimosa or any brunch cocktails, and you will be slummed over hoping you don’t end up with a hangover.

What Champagne Is Good For Orange Juice Mimosas?

Pickiness is not needed when using champagne for my mimosas. As long as the champagne is balanced out with the rest of the components of the drink, then you are good to go.

What Does An Orange Juice Mimosa Taste Like?

Mimosas taste like the nectar of an angel when made right. When done incorrectly, it tastes like bitter orange juice.

Why Is A Mimosa Called A Mimosa?

In a bar full of good drinks, the name “Mimosa”, sticks out. The name comes from the yellow-flowered mimosa plant, Acacia dealbata.

This has nothing to do with the orange juice mimosa recipe, but it is a cool, fun fact to know.

How Much Alcohol Is In A Orange Juice Mimosa?

Typically, mimosas and other brunch cocktails are served during the afternoon in bars, daytime parties, etc. In these settings, the alcohol intake in the mimosa will probably be on the low side.

On the contrary, if you are making your own mimosas, then you can have as much alcohol in your drink as you want. That triple sec and vodka combination will get you right, and if that’s not enough, then replace the vodka with some ever clear.

What Kind Of Orange Juice Is Good For Mimosas?

Any orange juice without pulps in it will do the trick.

How Much Orange Juice Do I Put In A Mimosa?

The amount of orange juice used for a mimosa will depend on the volume of mimosa you are trying to make.

In the case of creating one serving that will be in a champagne flute glass, I would use ¾ cup of orange juice.

What Glasses Do You Serve Mimosas In?

Mimosas are usually served in what is called a champagne flute. Does that mean you can only drink mimosas in that type of glass?

Not at all.

You can drink your mimosa out of a cereal bowl if you want to, the drink will still get you where you need to be.
