When it comes to brunch, we love an Instagrammable avocado toast or a bacon-topped anything as much as the next gal. But for us, it's the mimosa that makes the meal.

What is a mimosa? For the uninitiated, a classic mimosa recipe combines sparkling wine with a splash of orange juice for an effervescent breakfast cocktail. But these days, the orange juice is more of a suggestion than a mandatory ingredient. From picture-perfect hibiscus mimosas to Sunday-funday-ready mimosa-margarita hybrids, the internet has figured out infinite ways to riff on the humble mimosa -- and we are so here for all of them.

So pay attention, ladies who brunch: Here are the 21 most insanely sippable mimosa recipes for your next boozy breakfast.

1-1/2 cups pineapple juice
1 (25.4-ounce) bottle sparkling white wine, chilled

Mimosa Sangria
This mimosa recipe successfully marries two beloved mixed drinks into one fresh, fruity cocktail.

Ingredients:
3 cups orange juice
1/2 cup Cointreau or Grand Marnier, or any orange liqueur
1 naval orange, quartered and thinly sliced
2 cups fresh strawberries, hulled and thinly sliced
1 cup diced fresh pineapple
1 (750 ml) chilled bottle champagne or any dry sparkling wine
Optional: ice, extra strawberries for garnish

Directions:
Combine the orange juice, Cointreau (or any orange liqueur), orange, strawberries and pineapple together in a large pitcher. Use a large wooden spoon to stir and muddle the fruit a bit. Refrigerate the juice for at least 10 minutes and up to two hours. When ready to serve, fill the serving glasses one-third full of the orange juice and fruit mixture. Carefully top each glass with champagne until full, adding extra ice if needed. Garnish each glass with a strawberry if desired. Serve immediately.
