A Mimosa is a cocktail-like drink composed of one part champagne (or other sparkling wine) and one part thoroughly chilled citrus fruit juice, usually orange juice unless otherwise specified (e.g. "grapefruit [juice] mimosa"). It is traditionally served in a tall champagne flute with a morning brunch as hair of the dog or to guests at weddings.[1]

History[edit]

It is believed to have been invented circa 1925 in the Hôtel Ritz Paris by Frank Meier.[2] It is probably named after the common name in Anglophone Europe for the yellow flowers of Acacia dealbata.[3][4]

A Buck's Fizz is a similar cocktail, but with twice as much orange juice as champagne.
