|4 fl oz||Brut Champagne (chilled)|
|2 fl oz||Freshly squeezed orange juice (chilled)|
A very simple cocktail, but when made with freshly squeezed oranges straight from the refrigerator this is a great brunch drink.
Thought to have been created in 1921 by Pat McGarry, first bartender at the Buck's Club, London. Very similar to the Mimosa created in Paris four years later.
The sketchy history of both the Buck's Fizz and Mimosa can be found on our Buck's Fizz and Mimosa cocktail page.
