J'ai remplacé le champagne par du cidre bouché. Très agréable.

I like to add equal parts pineapple juice and OJ then top off with a splash of Triple Sec. Smooths things out nicely.

Sounds refreshing, almost like a bucksfizz sort of taste.

Personally, I would use cointreau instead of Grand Marnier as GM unless u like mimosa towards the "sour" side.
