Let’s Celebrate Mimosas in Honor of National
Who doesn’t love a good mimosa? Whether you’re brunching with friends or just relaxing by the pool, it’s the perfect refresher any time of day. May 16 is National Mimosa Day. What better way to enjoy a mimosa than with the real citrus sparkle of Orangina!
Where did mimosas come from?
According to mimosa legend, it’s a derivative of Buck’s Fizz, which originated in 1921 at Buck’s Club in London with a heavier alcohol pour. In 1925, a bartender named Frank Meier at the Ritz Hotel in Paris came up with the mimosa, which is equal parts sparkling wine or champagne and juice. Filmmaker Alfred Hitchcock is said to have helped spark the drink’s popularity in the United States, and by the time Ronald Reagan became president, mimosas were considered the official brunch cocktail.
You can create your own classy yet stress-free brunch with fresh flowers and a simple menu. In most cases, a buffet works best to ensure everyone can get what they want when they want it. It also keeps the host focused on delivering a great experience. Don’t forget to have everyone RSVP to make sure you have enough food.
When is the best time for brunch? It depends. In most cases, brunch is between 10 a.m. and noon, but it can be stretched out until 1 or 2 p.m. If you’re looking for simple ways to elevate your brunch, add a splash of France with sweet and savory crepes instead of pancakes, pains au chocolat instead of plain croissants, and quiche instead of standard egg dishes.
There should be a variety of non-alcoholic drinks on hand, but the Orangina Mimosa is a menu must. People from all over the country refer to Orangina Sparkling Citrus Beverage as a mimosa on its own, so now you have an alternative that can be served in a special glass all by itself, or to replace typical orange juice as a mixer.
Follow these tips, play some light music, and you’ll be well on your way to having the best mimosa-filled brunch of the month!
