Americans Have Been Lying To Us Because Mimosas Are Just Buck's Fizz

Buck's fizz is a drink you give to children.

In the UK we were led to believe that mimosas were the queen of brunch cocktails, the kind of thing Taylor Swift would be drinking in this picture.

And Bloody Marys were an inferior, dirtier, generally crapper brunch cocktail widely available in the UK.


These are the kinds of people who drink buck's fizz: grannies and 12-year-olds.

You might have a glass on Christmas morning, but if you're over the age of 16 you'll probably just stick to the champagne.


Buck's fizz is nice, but champagne is nicer, so you only have buck's fizz if you are a child or if you can't afford to give champagne to everyone.

Some people argue there is a difference between a mimosa and a buck's fizz: buck's fizz contains more like two-thirds champagne, while a mimosa is half champagne and half orange juice.
