Review:

As the name suggests, the orange of Grand Marnier heavily influences this drink. Basically a Mimosa or a Buck's Fizz (orange juice and champagne) with added oomph.

History:

The Mimosa was created in 1925 at the Ritz Hotel, Paris. The Grand Mimosa benefits from the addition of a splash of Grand Marnier liqueur.

The sketchy history of both the Buck's Fizz and Mimosa can be found on our Buck's Fizz and Mimosa cocktail page.
