    We know it as Buck's Fizz, but the French call it Mimosa. Whatever you call it, this classic tipple is a must whether it's Christmas, Mother's Day or a simple weekend brunch.

    This was a great treat for a bridal shower brunch I threw. To add to the presention I included a maraschino cherry and some cherry juice (about a tablespoon) to the orange juice and champagne mixture. The cherry juice sinks to the bottom of the glass, making a drink that is not only tasty but beautiful.  -  27 Apr 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I have frequently made Mimosas by the glass, but it is a real time saver to know how to make a large batch. The preportions on this recipe are great.  -  13 Feb 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Very simple and very good. I served this to a group of girls for a brunch and it was a hit. I used orangepineapple juice with inexpensive champagne. I also added some marachino cherries with some cherry juice and served it in a colorful glass pitcher. (The cherries will sink to the bottom of the pitcher.)  -  23 Nov 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
