A Simple Pairing

Peanut Butter and Jelly.

Steak and Potatoes.

Shrimp and Grits.

Most people would agree that you can’t have one of the above mentioned items without the other.

So, here’s my question: Can you have brunch without a mimosa?

I’d argue that you could, but a mimosa certainly tops it off! Yes, fresh orange juice and fine champagne on your palette during a delicious brunch (featuring french toast- of course) is oh so good! mmosa

Here’s a few Mimosa Facts for you that I didn’t even know about:

— The mimosa was invented at the Ritz Hotel in Paris in 1925. It’s widely believed, though, that a French bartender stole the idea from a London tavern that calls their almost identical concoction “Buck’s Fizz” around the same time.

— The mimosa is named after the mimosa flower, a bright orange/yellow blossom native to southern Mexico and Central and South America.
