Reasons why prosecco truly is the best option for brunchNow, when it comes to making a proper mimosa, there are a few different options. Orange juice, a little bit of triple sec/Grand Marnier, and a splash of bubbly to finish it off are all ingredients that are needed to craft the classic mimosa. When it comes to the alcohol of choice, most will typically reach for the champagne because it’s the go-to option. However, you should try prosecco the next time that you are gearing up for a loaded brunch, and here’s why. Versatility This bubbly has bigger, less stable bubbles than champagne, which helps create a lighter and fruitier taste. Since the bubbles don’t last as long, drinking this delicacy is easier (not saying you should chug it). Another thing you should keep in mind -- the younger the bottle, the better. Prosecco’s slightly sweet flavor allows it to be paired with just about everything -- from sweet, like pancakes and fruit, to savory dishes, like omelets and breakfast meats. People even enjoy sipping on it with spicy foods because the sweetness cuts it down. With all these wonderful attributes, prosecco seems like a no-brainer choice for your next mimosa brunch!
Little Less AlcoholStarting the day off with brunch usually means that there is a good chance the rest of the day will be spent drinking as well. Day drinking can get out of hand pretty quickly if patrons aren’t mindful of what they’re drinking because it can be super easy to down a couple of mimosas without thinking twice. Prosecco’s ABV is a little less than its counterpart (usually around 11-12%), which is a good thing when day drinking is the plan of action. And you can drink all day if you start with some prosecco drinks for brunch. Now, that you are convinced to give prosecco a try, you may be asking yourself, “what’s a good mimosa recipe with prosecco?” Well, don’t worry because we have you covered!
