We are having a little Champagne & Wedding Cake Brunch the morning after the wedding for our guests. I wanted to offer some champagne type beverages, like Mimosas. Does anyone have recipes for particularly delicious champagne based drinks?

I’ve been looking for similar drinks because we’re serving a brunch menu. One of the most helpful places I’ve found for recipes so far is the Food Network New Year’s site. There’s a link on the lower righthand side for top celebratory cocktails.
Allrecipes also had a few champagne recipes that sounded tasty. I’m excited to try this mimosa variation:
For a non-alcoholic option I recently served this at a friend’s
baby shower and it was a total hit..
Does anyone else have any good champagne or brunch type drink recipes to share?

Poinsettias. Triple sec, cranberry juice and champagne. Very pretty red color.

This isn’t champagne-based, but it IS bubbly, pretty and refreshing:
1/2 to 1 oz. Cointreau (depending on how strong you want it to be)
Fresh Strawberry slices
Club Soda or seltzer
Combine the above in a tall glass (or flute) over ice and garnish with a fresh lime wedge.
If you wanted to pre-make these to a degree, you could have the strawberry slices already cut and marinating in a chilled bowl with the Cointreau and fresh lime juice. Then, your guests could just ladle a bit into the iced glass and add the soda.
I love this drink in the summer b/c it’s light and not too sweet.
You might even be able to substitute champagne for the seltzer, though I’d eliminate the lime in that case.

We’re doing a prosecco bar at our wedding, so here’s a few ideas: pomegranate juice, mango juice, peach nectar, cassis, blueberry juice, orange juice (looks like you got that one covered). I’ve also heard of people doing flavored simple syrups.

Here is a recipe from Martha Stewart Weddings. It’s called the Blushing Bride.
