Ya, that's pretty steep. Sounds like it was delicious though. Was there anything else in it or just raspberries and champagne? When you say crushed, do you mean puréed?

I would avoid the Mimosa. I think of it as simply a brunch drink now, and not a drink to impress. Bellini, Kir Royale, or Champagne Cocktail would be better.

Champagne/sparkling wine runs anywhere from 7%-14% alcohol, similar to most wines. If you're making one of these 1/2 cocktails like a mimosa, then yes, it's much like drinking a beer. This is why in tending school I made note of cocktails that keep the original amount of champagne and add a 1/2 shot of liqueur, such as the Kir Royal or the Kir Imperial. A glass Blue Nun Sparkling (11% ABV) or a random Brut (13%) plus a 1/2 shot of Creme de Framboise (18%)= the beginning of a party and essentially a very strong, bubbly wine.

Besides, I think if you're throwing back champagne cocktails with a couple of girls, the buzz will be mental as well.
