How to Store Peeps Mimosa
Mimosa, which contains fresh fruit juice and champagne, is best consumed immediately.
Should you have any leftovers from this girly drink, it is best to store the ingredients separately (i.e., champagne and fruit juice).
Best Way to Store Peeps Mimosa Leftover
The best way to store your yummy drinks leftover is to store the champagne and fruit juice and other ingredients separately.
Champagne bottles that are opened can still be refrigerated for up to 5 days, but this should have a stopper to maintain the texture of your champagne.
However, if your champagne is unopened, you should just store this in a cool, dry, and dark place, as this is sensitive and reacts to the slightest heat, light, and vibrations.
You can chill your champagne for 3 hours in the fridge when you are to consume them within that time.
How Long Will Peeps Mimosa Last in the Fridge?
Your Peeps Mimosa will last for at least 2 to 3 days if it is mixed with fruit juice.
If possible, consume your mimosa before the end of the night so as not to spoil the fruit juice in it.
Can I Freeze My Cocktail Drink
Yes, you can freeze your cocktail drink. However, you have to consistently freeze it at 0 degrees. If properly stored, your champagne can last up to 6 months in the freezer.

What can I do with leftover champagne?
Here are some ideas and tips on what you can do with your leftover champagne:
Whip up cocktails
For champagne, you can make another variant of mimosa or a base for a sangria cocktail.
Freeze into ice cubes
If you accidentally left your champagne open for too long in the fridge and it has gone flat, make ice cubes out of them.
You can use these for your cocktail drinks in the future.
Make a pan sauce
You can sauté this with garlic and onions, and let the wine evaporate, leaving you with a beautiful pan sauce.
Add some cream and seasoning, and you can use this for your meat dishes.
You can simmer herbs and garlic in wine/champagne and water.
This natural pairing has a perfect combination of acidity from the champagne and the sweetness of seafood.
Make a dessert such as crepes
Replace the milk with the leftover champagne in the batter and you will have yourself a light and airy crepe.
Garnish this with powdered sugar and strawberries with the perfect filling of your choice for an awesome dessert.
Soak your fruits for breakfast
You can soak and marinate your fruits in your leftover champagne for 30 minutes in the morning.
You can use these fruits for your pancakes for breakfast. Apples, pears, and oranges taste great with champagne.
Add your leftover champagne to your stew
Champagne complements Mediterranean flavors. You can use this for chicken, lamb, pork, beef, fish, or vegetable stew.
Make a champagne vinaigrette
For this, you have to let your champagne ferment for a few weeks.
You can then add lemon juice, salt, pepper, honey, shallot, olive oil, and Dijon mustard to make a vinaigrette.
Make luscious champagne truffles
To make this fancy dessert, you can add heavy cream and chocolate to your leftover champagne.
Cook a risotto
You can add your champagne when sauteing the rice in butter.
Bake some champagne cupcakes
You can simply add your champagne into the cake base or use the champagne in the frosting for a yummy champagne dessert.
Make a creamy champagne chicken
You can make this by searing your chicken in butter, olive oil, and champagne.
