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