Mimosas are making a huge comeback in 2017. Bridal and wedding showers, weekend brunch and parties are just some of the occasions where mimosas are a popular drink of choice. Mimosas are traditionally served as a mixture of Orange juice and Champagne and they are world famous for being refreshing and light to drink. The Mimosa is named after a bright yellow blossoming flower that can be found in the South of Mexico and throughout the South and Central America’s.
Battle of the Mimosa
The origin of the mimosa is up for debate as some believe the beverage was invented at The Ritz Hotel in Paris France in the year 1925 by Frank Meier and others believe that Frank the French bartender stole the idea from a London England tavern that called their mimosa “Buck’s Fizz” The difference between the two Mimosas a the Ritz uses a 50/50 ratio while Bucks opts for a sweeter version with 75 percent orange juice to champagne.
