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.
What’s the difference between Prosecco and Champagne?
Basically Champagne has to come from the Champagne region of France. Whereas Prosecco, well there more about that in this article that I found very interesting from The Daily Meal. For more in-depth information on Prosecco, you can click here to see what Wikipedia says.
Where to buy Prosecco?
Your local grocer or package store should have a selection, and also from Cost Plus World Market to Walmart, finding a variety of quality Prosecco is pretty straight forward.
