Mimosas are astonishingly easy to make. For a true Mimosa, though, it’s not just Champagne and orange juice. Traditionally, a teaspoon or so of Grand Marnier (or a dash of orange bitters) is used to add a little complexity to this exceedingly simple drink. Not that simple is a bad thing, of course.
- 2 oz. orange juice
- 4 oz. Brut champagne
- 1 tsp. Grand Marnier
- dash orange bitters
- Fill champagne flute 2/3 full of fresh-squeezed orange juice.
- Top up with brut champagne.
- Add the teaspoon of Grand Marnier.
