No garden party or brunch get-together is complete without a mimosa. This sweet-tasting beverage, which pairs champagne and orange juice, is quick to make and can impress your party guests. Whether you're making traditional mimosas or putting a twist on this drink with cranberry juice or pineapple juice, one standard type of glass is suitable.

Use Champagne Flutes

Mimosas are traditionally served in champagne flutes. Using this type of glass can help you avoid having to carefully measure your drink's ingredients. A standard approach is to fill two-thirds of the glass with champagne, and then top the rest of the glass with orange juice. A splash of grenadine or Grand Marnier can help give a boost of color and flavor to the drink.
