Some experts are still debating about where the cocktail’s begun. Some say the very first mimosa debuted in London in 1921, created by the bartender Buck’s Fizz at Buck’s Club. While others assert that it was invented by bartender Frank Meier at the Ritz Bar in Paris in 1925. Certainly, everyone agrees that it was called mimosa because of a yellow flower, the “Acacia Dealbata” with a similar color to the drink mixture. No matter where it came from, it cannot be denied that mimosa has managed to take root in popular culture as a classy drink.
