Mimosa cocktail


The Mimosa Cocktail or Buck’s Fizz is a drink made with fresh orange juice and Prosecco.

Little is known about the origins of this cocktail; it seems that it was created at the Paris Ritz in 1952 and was made with Champagne and orange juice.

What we know for sure, however, is that, in our home, the mimosa aperitif is reserved for special occasions.

We also like it because it’s elegant, quick and easy . In fact, it is prepared on the spot, with very few ingredients and is served in flutes.

If you add a small amount of grenadine syrup at the end, it will settle to the bottom, creating a beautiful color effect.

To be fair we must confess that on the IBA (Internationa Bartenders Association) website there is no variant of this cocktail, but the addition of grenadine has been widespread for some time now, and does not particularly alter the structure of the drink.

The ideal season to prepare it is undoubtedly winter, because we have juicy and very sweet oranges available.

So, if you are of the right age and have a special occasion to celebrate, give it a try.

If you prefer a non-alcoholic cocktail, look here and prepare the ice cubes and fruit syrups.

Then Get the recipe !

How to prepare the Mimosa Cocktail:

We squeeze one or two very sweet oranges and filter the juice with a sieve.

Pour 75 ml of orange juice into a flute and slowly add 75 ml of sparkling wine or Prosecco.

We mix gently, garnish with an orange triangle (optional) and serve immediately.

A variant:

We can add a small amount of grenadine syrup, which will also give a nice color effect.

Another Prosecco-based cocktail, but with a more particular taste, is the black Hugo.
