Before the kids came along, my husband and I would enjoy going out for the occasional Champagne Brunch. We wouldn't even have thought about Virgin Mimosas.
In those days we would drink a little too much and eat way too much. As much as I love Champagne, I know now that just a little bit would be a guaranteed headache for me. I guess those days are over.
This past Easter, I made some of these Virgin Mimosas for us. They were delicious and the kids were able to enjoy them too.

It was a wonderful Easter day. My son and husband went to an early movie while my daughter and I stayed home. We dyed some eggs and decided to give Southern Fatty's Homemade Marshmallow Peeps a try. (They were amazing!)
- Orange Juice
- Lemon-Lime Soda
My kids told me to make sure I put the Shirley Temples and Virgin Mimosas on the blog. They are both simple to put together, and a great beverage for kids (and adults).
How to make this kid-friendly beverage
Start with your favorite brand of orange juice, limeade, and lemon-lime soda. As you can see, our favorite brands are the Simply brand and Sprite.
I found these fun, plastic champagne glasses at the local grocery store. The kids got a real kick out of them when they were small.
Fill the glasses about halfway full with the orange juice.
Next, you need to add a little limeade. The addition of the limeade adds a nice flavor to these mimosas.
You want about half as much limeade as orange juice. The glass will now be about three-quarters full.
Finally, top off with a bit of sprite. Stir carefully. The Virgin Mimosas are now ready to serve.
Kid-friendly, and great for adults wanting an alternative to an alcoholic beverage. A great drink to serve at baby showers!
- 8 ounces Orange Juice
- 4 ounces Limeade
- 4 ounces Lemon-Lime Soda
- Pour ¼ cup of orange juice in each glass.
- Next, add ⅛ cup of limeade to each serving.
- Then add ⅛ cup of lemon-lime soda to each drink.
- Stir gently and serve.
