Mimosas have certainly gained their fame as your favorite brunch cocktail but we can assure you that they are good for any occasion. The ratio of orange juice to Champagne is always subject to opinion but make sure both ingredients are chilled for the most refreshing outcome. Feel free to add a teaspoon of Grand Marnier if you want to make your Mimosa a little more complex. Last but not least, make sure you're never left brunching without one. Enjoy.

Originating in Italy, the classic Bellini is made with white peach puree and Prosecco. Many people now substitute other dry sparkling wines in the bellini recipe.

A sparkling wine-based cocktail traditionally served in the northern part of Italy during "apertif hour". Essential to the spritz is an Italian bitter orange liqueur such as Aperol, which is in the same family as Campari but a little less bitter and a little more refined. This Simple Aperol Spritz is fairly low in alcohol, luckily, because it goes down a little too easily! Cin cin!
