Comment:

A liqueur-infused take on the Buck's Fizz. Great when made with freshly squeezed orange juice.

When made with mandarin juice this becomes a Puccini.

Origin:

Created in 1925 at the Ritz Hotel in Paris and named after the tropical flowering shrub. In his 1948 Fine Art of Mixing Drinks, David A. Embury writes of this drink, "Just another freak champagne mixture. It is not half bad and the ladies usually like it. Use a good quality domestic champagne, medium dry."
