Can prosecco be used in mimosas?

For the best mimosa, use a dry sparkling wine, not sweet. We usually will spend $12 to $15 on the sparkling wine we add to our mimosas. Your best bet is to look for “Cava,” which comes from Spain, or an American sparkling wine that’s around $15. A dry Prosecco is a great option, too.
