The History of the Mimosa Cocktail

‚ÄčThe Mimosa Cocktail was first created at the Paris Ritz, in 1925 by bartender Frank Meier, who named the drink after the bright orange blossoms of the mimosa plant. There is another story however, of the drink’s origins that has Frank Meier, stealing the recipe idea from a London tavern that was called a “Buck’s Fizz” that was created in 1921.

A classic mimosa is made with 1 part juice (any citrus juice, though orange has become the most common) and 2 parts sparkling wine.
