The Classic Mimosa

"Created in Paris at the Ritz hotel, the Mimosa is believed by many to be a ripoff of the original Buck’s Fizz, which is essentially an older recipe for Champagne and orange juice, only with a higher ratio of orange juice and the addition of grenadine. Many drink experts also like the addition of Grand Marnier when making a true Mimosa. Regardless, freshly squeezed orange juice is a must for this cocktail."

Serves: 1

 

3 ounces fresh orange juice

2 ounces Champagne

Teaspoon of Grand Marnier

Combine orange juice and Grand Marnier in a Champagne flute and top with Champagne.
