The mimosa, a perennial brunch cocktail of equal parts bubbly and fresh-squeezed orange juice, pairs perfectly with all things eggs, bacon and potato.
If you are looking to brunch hard this weekend, mix it up with one of these clever alternatives for a lovely afternoon on the patio.
Pair this sexy signora with your frittata del giorno. Brezza Cucina stays true to its Italian roots with a mimosa celebrating brunch and two of Italy’s greatest exports, prosecco and Campari. Add orange juice, and you have a cocktail perfect for sipping on the Amalfi Coast — or in the ATL in springtime.

Sometimes, your hangover demands the “Champagne of beers,” Miller High Life, mixed with vitamin C for head-soothing healing. Pair this puppy with one of Robert Phalen’s chicken biscuits with gravy to help soak up last night’s booze.

It’s not a mimosa, but it’s delicious. Sub the OJ with pureed fruit (in this case, the seasonal strawberry), add bubbly and you have a tasty, smoothie-like cocktail full of vitamins and minerals to pair with your dim sum brunch.
