Orange Creamsicle Mimosas are so simple to make, you’ll have a pitcher in no time flat. Trust me you’ll probably end up having a couple of these tasty drinks, it is brunch and it is definitely a time to just relax and enjoy.
The creamy orange base combines so wonderfully with a little bubbly. Simply whip up the base in a blender, fill a flute halfway and then top with your favorite bubbly of choice.
I filled up a gorgeous decanter from Grosche with the base mix. In reality, this beautiful Grosche glass decanter is a Water & Sangria Infuser (also great for brunch) but I knew it would be great for holding the fruity base mix. I simply poured it directly from the blender into the carafe.
What do you need to make Orange Creamsicle Mimosas?
- Orange Juice
- Half and Half
- Bubbly of choice: champagne, sparkling wine, non-alcoholic sparkling grape juice

Some tips for making Orange Creamsicle Mimosas:
- You can easily half the recipe for a smaller batch. Or double the batch, no judging.
- If preparing the base mix ahead of time, refrigerate and stir prior to pouring.

- Champagne or sparkling wine to top off glass
