Created at Buck’s Club in London in 1921, this sweet and tangy drink is one of the most frequently sipped champagne cocktails in the world. The grenadine settles at the bottom of the glass, creating a layered, sunset effect. If you omit the grenadine, the drink becomes a Mimosa, named for the bright golden flowers on the mimosa tree.

  • orange slice, for garnish
