History and background
The Mimosa or the Royal Mimosa cocktail is a popular champagne cocktail and brunch cocktail. The successful mix of brut champagne and orange juice – further intensified with Bols Dry Orange – is almost a century old. There is some confusion about when the Royal Mimosa cocktail was first created, but it probably all began in 1921 with a mixed drink called the Buck's Fizz. The Buck's Fizz was invented in the Buck's Club in London and contained 2 parts champagne and 1 part orange juice. In 1925, the bartender Frank Meier created the Mimosa with equal parts orange juice and champagne, and a small portion of Triple Sec orange liqueur. There also a theory that an American film director created the Mimosa for Marilyn Monroe in the 1940s. Ms. Monroe certainly liked a good Mimosa; it’s even said that she kicked off each morning with a glass of this breakfast cocktail.
Flavour Royal Mimosa Cocktail
There's a good reason why the Mimosa is so famous and well-loved. It's an ideal breakfast and brunch cocktail as it has the fresh, sparkling flavours of the champagne, the fresh-sweet-sour mix of the fresh orange juice and the strong, sweet Bols Dry Orange. Using ready-made orange juice in this exclusive champagne cocktail is a big no-no! Don't do it! It will ruin the beautiful fresh and balanced dance of flavours in this cocktail.
