A Mimosa is a cocktail composed of equal parts champagne (or other sparkling wine) and chilled citrus juice, usually orange juice unless otherwise specified (e.g., grapefruit juice, which is referred to as a megmosa). It is traditionally served in a tall champagne flute at brunch, at weddings, or as part of First Class service on some passenger railways and airlines. Some variations of the drink (especially in New York City) contain triple sec.
The Buck's Fizz is a similar type of cocktail, but with twice as much champagne as orange juice.
The Megmosa is similar type of cocktail; however, it is prepared specifically with grapefruit juice and garnished with raspberries.
