The perfect Mimosa recipe is here

The recipe is extremely easy and at the same time a true legend.

It was invented in 1925 by a barman at the Ritz hotel in Paris, who gave it the ‘mimosa’ because of its yellow colour. But a few years earlier, a very similar drink called Buck’s Fizz was being sipped in London, named after the bar where it was first prepared.

We’ll probably never know who the real inventor of the Mimosa cocktail was, but at least we can now discover the recipe to make it!

Ingredients (for 2 people)

– 1 orange

– Sparkling wine 75 ml per person (approx.)

First, squeeze an orange and pour the juice into 2 flutes.

Add the chilled sparkling wine.

Cut a slice of orange into a half-moon shape and cut the slice so that it can be placed on the edge of the glass.

And that’s it, your Mimosa cocktail is ready to refresh your brunch. But remember, it must be consumed immediately, otherwise it loses its fantastic freshness!
