Before we get into a full background on The Classic Mimosa cocktail recipe, here are some other related cocktails you may enjoy: the Frozen Mimosa, the Strawberry Grapefruit Mimosa, the Paloma Mimosa, the New Year’s Eve Purple Shimmering Champagne, the Sunset Mimosa, and Champagne Gummy Bears. Now, as far as the Classic Mimosa is concerned, according to the Classic Mimosa Wikipedia page, “It is believed to have been invented at the Hôtel Ritz Paris by Frank Meier, in about 1925.” The Mimosa Wikipedia page also notes that “[the Mimosa] is probably named after the common name in Europe for the yellow flowers of Acacia dealbata.” As a side note, there are a lot of variations on the Classic Mimosa cocktail, including the Buck’s Fizz. What the Mimosa is really known for though, is, of course, its brilliance as a brunch cocktail. Really, if you’re having brunch with friends out in the sunshine, the Mimosa is the go-to drink.
