You are probably familiar with the classic mimosa recipe, but if you prefer a slightly smoother cocktail or are not a fan of orange juice, you will love this pear version of the classic.
Mimosas are always popular at elegant events such as brunches and bridal showers and for good reason – the bubbly gives them a sophisticated feel while the juice stops them from being too strong for a daytime drink.
If you like the taste of pears, you will enjoy this fall mimosa. I personally prefer it from orange juice as the taste is much gentler and less sharp.
Plus you can barely taste the alcohol which can make it a bit dangerous, of course.

What Is In A Pear Mimosa?
You don’t need anything too complicated to make this fall mimosa cocktail.
Of course, a champagne flute or coupe is a must but other than that, you don’t need any special bartending equipment.
Here’s what goes in a Pear Mimosa Cocktail:
Prosecco or similar sparkling Wine
I normally use either Cava or Prosecco in my mimosas. First of all, these sparkling wines from Spain and Italy respectively, are cheaper than Champagne from France and they are somewhat lighter.
Given that you are mixing the sparkling wine with pear juice, it doesn’t seem to make sense to use your most expensive bottle of Moet Chandon in a mimosa.
That being said, if money is no object, by all means you can use Champagne and it will be wonderful.
I do typically choose a dry or brut sparkling wine when making mimosas as you get enough sweetness from the juice that you add in.
You can buy pear juice at most grocery stores (especially health food stores). You can also squeeze your own pear juice in season.
Fresh Pear Slices
Pears are one of those fruits similar to avocados where they are rock hard one day and then ripe for what seems like only hours.
If you are able to get a pear in season then adding a slice as a garnish really makes your cocktail look and taste amazing.
Pear Mimosa Recipe: Directions
Fill your Champagne flute about halfway with sparkling wine.
Next top your glass with pear juice
You can add a slice of fresh pear to your glass for a festive touch.
Virgin Pear Mimosa
If you want to make this drink without alcohol, you can use club soda or sparkling water instead of champagne.
What better way to celebrate any occasion than with a delicious pear Mimosa!
This cocktail mixes together bubbly champagne and pear juice. It is the perfect fall cocktail that is perfect for Thanksgiving brunch.
One standard bottle of Champagne or Prosecco should make 8 glasses of this classic mimosa.
- 1 Bottle Champagne or sparkling wine
- 2 Cups Pear Juice
- Slices of fresh pear
- Fill the Champagne flute about halfway with Prosecco or another sparkling wine
- Top with orange juice
- Garnish with a slice of fresh orange
- Non-alcoholic version - substitute the Champagne for club soda or sparkling water
- You can use any sparkling wine you wish for this cocktail. My preference is Cava as it is cheaper (!) and a bit lighter.
