A mimosa is a classic cocktail typically served during brunch or breakfast. It is made by combining equal parts champagne and orange juice, and is usually served in a flute glass with a twist of orange peel as a garnish. The cocktail is named after the mimosa plant, which has fluffy, yellow flowers similar in color to the drink.
The mimosa was first created in the 1920s in the Hotel Ritz Paris. The mimosa is a light, refreshing cocktail that is perfect for brunch or other daytime events. It is also a popular choice for weddings, bridal showers, and other special occasions. While it is traditionally made with champagne, some bartenders may substitute prosecco or other sparkling wines.One important thing to keep in mind when making a mimosa is to use chilled ingredients, as warm juice or champagne can affect the flavor of the cocktail. It's also important to pour the champagne first, followed by the orange juice, to ensure that the champagne doesn't overflow.Serves 1
