This non alcoholic mimosa is bubbly and refreshing: the perfect virgin drink for kids or people avoiding alcohol!

Non Alcoholic Mimosa

Here’s a great mocktail trick that works for people of all ages: the Non Alcoholic Mimosa! This drink is so simple to put together, and it’s totally customizable for kids or people avoiding alcohol. You can make this virgin drink at the same time as the classic Mimosa, and it works for a crowd! It tastes surprisingly balanced: citrusy and bubbly with a hint of ginger on the finish. What’s the key to a delicious non alcoholic mimosa? Our 4-year-old Larson loved this drink and even did a demo on Instagram to show you.

What’s in a non alcoholic mimosa?

The mimosa is a classic 2-ingredient cocktail likely invented in the 1920’s at the Ritz Hotel in Paris. The drink is on the list of International Bartender Association’s IBA official cocktails, meaning there’s an “official” definition of the mimosa: orange juice and champagne. How to make a non alcoholic mimosa? Swap ginger ale for champagne. Here are the ingredients you’ll need:

  • Orange juice:
  • Ginger ale

Pour them together, and you’ll be amazed that the flavor mimics a mimosa without being too literal. The hint of ginger on the finish gives it an interesting flair. It’s quick and easy to find both of these ingredients in your local grocery!

Best orange juice for a mimosa

When it comes to a non alcoholic mimosa, what’s best for the orange juice component?

  • Fresh juice always tastes best, but you might not be able to squeeze fresh juice for a crowd.
  • Bottled fresh juice with no pulp is the best: and make sure it has no added sugar!
  • Avoid orange juice from concentrate if you can: it doesn’t have the right flavor or texture.

Top brands of ginger ale

What about the ginger ale for a non alcoholic mimosa? Since it’s not a ginger ale cocktail that’s mixing with high-quality liquor, it’s ok to settle for a mid-range ginger ale. (Kids might not know the difference!) But if you’re wondering our favorites, here are some we’d recommend:

  • Q Ginger Ale: Our top choice! We like that it comes in small cans so you only have to use a little at a time. It’s also our top brand of ginger beer.
  • Fever Tree Ginger Ale: Fever Tree is made with real ginger and has no artificial sweeteners.
  • More Ginger Ale Brands: Here’s a list of more top brands.

Other bubbly mixers for a non alcoholic mimosa

  • Sparkling apple cider
  • Sparkling lemonade (make it homemade!)
  • Non-alcoholic sparkling wine
