What is the difference between this bellini recipe and a mimosa cocktail?

The difference between a bellini and mimosa is in the alcohol used. A bellini uses a dry sparkling Italian Prosecco, whereas a mimosa uses bubbly French champagne. Both taste amazing and are perfectly bubbly!

Want to serve mimosa at your next dinner party? If serving for a crowd, champagne can add up quickly, it’s definitely a beautiful cocktail, but for a more budget-friendly way to go, prosecco is a great substitute. In essence, opt for serving bellinis instead.
