Non-Alcoholic Thanksgiving Mimosa Mocktail: If you’d like to make this Thanksgiving drink without alcohol, simply swap the champagne for ginger ale.
If you don’t have champagne or prosecco for this recipe, you can use your favorite white sparkling wine. I would recommend a Chenin Blanc, Riesling, or Pinot Grigio for this recipe.
