Mimosa (French) (cocktail)

With the modern hectic schedule the brunch has gained a lot of ground as an alternative meal option. Comprising breakfast and lunch (hence the name) in an delicious and consistent but snack-based meal, the brunch must also come with Mimosa cocktails as a lovely way to start the day :)
The cocktails (invented in Paris sometime in 1925) are dead-easy to make: just mix champagne with fresh orange juice in equal amounts and serve it in champagne flute glasses. 
P.S: Here, we had them with lovely fresh-baked breakfast croissants with a Gouda cheese crust :)

Last year: another kind of bun in the oven (and no cooking for a while) :)

Ingredients (for each glass):
  • 50 ml champagne
  • 50 ml fresh orange juice

Pour the champagne first...

...then top with orange juice...

...then serve with your favorite snack. It's done, dig in! :)
