Raise your glass to these bright and vibrant orange juice cocktails! Nothing adds more delight (and vitamin C) to booze better than the sweet and zesty citrus fruit. Besides its gorgeous hue and fruity flavour, another reason it makes a great cocktail component is it pairs beautifully with all types of alcohol.
Here are some tasty cocktail recipes featuring OJ:
A sweet blend of champagne and orange juice, the mimosa couldn’t be a simpler drink.
Simply pour the OJ into a champagne flute, then top off with champagne. Once the champagne has gone down a bit, top off your glass with more bubbles as desired.
You can serve your homemade mimosas as is, or garnish with your favourite fruits, berries, or herbs.
The Best Orange Juice to Champagne Mimosa Ratio
Mimosas should never taste overly sweet, so when deciding how many parts orange juice to sparkling wine aka champagne, use the ratio of 1/3 juice to 2/3 sparkling wine, or about 2 ounces of OJ per drink.
