No decent brunch can be had without a Mimosa Cocktail or three! This super popular cocktail is a gift from the 1920’s and is said to have been invented in the Ritz Hotel, Paris. The Mimosa is created using equal parts juice and sparkling wine. It is very similar to the Bucks Fizz, which itself uses the same ingredients but with a slightly less juice to sparkling wine. There’s not a lot in it, to be honest, and both the Mimosa and Bucks Fizz are created and drank interchangeably. Sweet oranges and the slightly sweeter prosecco, make this incredibly pleasant and easy sipping.
