National Mimosa Day is an unofficial holiday observed on May 16. It is probably best celebrated at brunch on the weekend. National Mimosa Day celebrates brunch's favorite adult beverage: the mimosa, a drink typically made from orange juice and champagne.
Made with equal parts champagne and orange juice, the classic cocktail dates to the 1920s and is named after a golden yellow flower. The champagne component instantly adds a level of posh sophistication to any event, and mimosas are commonly consumed at weddings, baby showers, and fancy celebrations for special occasions.
Though the mimosa typically uses orange juice as a mixer, any fruit juice and sparkling wine concoction technically counts. Another variations, the “beermosa,” uses beer instead of champagne.
