These cocktails are a fun twist on a classic
Orange Creamsicle Mimosas taste like an orange creamsicle in a glass and are perfect for brunch! They come together in a snap, too, requiring only three ingredients.
These mimosas are incredibly easy to make
Regular mimosas are a no brainer, right? A little OJ, a little bubbly... and that's it!
Well, these Orange Creamsicle Mimosas require only one additional, very simple, step. To make these into creamsicle mimosas you'll just add a shot of whipped cream vodka along with the OJ.
So, if you can pour some stuff into a glass, you can make these mimosas with 0 problems.
What kind of bubbly should you use?
No need to get too terribly fancy here. I'm no snob when it comes to bubbles, so I usually pick up a budget-priced bottle. You may be able to tell that I used Barefoot Bubbly, which is very affordable.
I almost always buy a bottle of prosecco, rather than champagne, for this reason. But if you want to use legit champagne (or a sparkling wine, or whatever), do that! Choose your own adventure.
And as far as how sweet your bubbles should be? It's a matter of personal preference. The OJ and whipped cream vodka are pretty sweet on their own, so you may consider balancing that out with a less sweet bottle of bubbles. But if sweet is your thing, do it up big. You do you.
Wondering what to pair these mimosas with?
Or, you know what, just have one just to have one. No need to wait until breakfast/brunch 😉
Looking for other recipes?
If you're in search of more bubbles, I've got you covered there, too. These Apple Cider Mimosas are super easy to throw together, and taste great. They're perfect for the upcoming Fall season. Mimosa Moscow Mules are also a fun riff on a couple of classic cocktails.
Keeping with the Mule theme, here's a Pomegranate Champagne Moscow Mule! They were a fun change of pace on New Year's Eve several years ago. I also did a Chambord Kir Royale for NYE one year, and they were beautiful AND delicious. These Cranberry Rosemary French 75s are a great option, too.
Oh, and! These Blackberry Champagne Floats are so tasty and SO easy to make. Switch things up with different sorbets and garnishes, too.
- Add the vodka and orange juice to a champagne flute.
- Top with bubbly.
- Garnish with an orange slice.

- A citrus juicer, so you can juice your oranges with ease
