The Buck's Fizz is similar to the popular Champagne cocktail, the Mimosa. The difference between the two is that in this drink there is no triple sec or orange liqueur and the ratios are reversed.

It will make a simple, yet elegant brunch cocktail and is also perfect for celebrating any special occasion for which plain Champagne just will not do.

If you prefer, a dry sparkling wine will also work well in the Buck's Fizz.

What You'll Need

  • 3 1/2 ounces orange juice
  • 1 1/2 ounces Champagne
  • Garnish: orange twist

How to Make It

  1. Build the ingredients in the order given in a Champagne flute.
  2. Garnish with the orange twist.
