Bourbon Street Serving Up The Mimosa Cocktail for Mother's Day Brunch

The Mimosa Cocktail brings sparkle to Brunch, making it one of the most popular cocktails to enjoy. Bourbon Street will be serving up Brunch for Mom on Sunday, and the Mimosa's will be flowing!

The creation of the first Mimosa is credited to the famous Ritz Hotel in Paris, and was originally served in 1925. For a twist on the original cocktail, you can add an ounce of orange liquer to create an intense orange flavor or Amaretto for extra nuttiness. Champagne, it's whats for Breakfast (or, in this case, Brunch!) C'est Magnifique!

The Mimosa Champagne Cocktail

The basic Mimosa recipe calls for a bottle of your favorite champagne and orange juice. A dash of each and you have this very refreshing cocktail to enjoy in less than five minutes!

Ingredients:
•Sparkling Wine, Prosecco or Champagne (1 bottle)
•One Quart of Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice

Preparation:

Fill half of a champagne flute with chilled sparkling wine or Champagne (about an ounce) and top off with chilled orange juice (again about 2 ounces), gently stir. For added flare, slice up an Orange or  a Strawberry to decorate the rim of each flute.
