Make Breakfast extra special with Bucks Fizz

If you are having a special or celebratory breakfast the perfect drink is a bucks fizz. What can be better than some champagne to start the day!

Essentially buck’s fizz is an alcoholic cocktail made up of 1/3 orange juice to 2/3rds champagne. If you do 50/50 then it is technically a mimosa. Having said that as it’s for breakfast my buck’s fizz (or mimosa if you prefer) is 2/3 orange and 1/3 fizz. The reality is the quantities will depend on who is drinking and when so feel free to mix it up.

Whilst I would love to have champagne for my special occasion breakfast my bank balance rarely stretches that far. Cava and Prosecco both work just as well.

Ingredients for a bucks fizz

So simple all you need is

  • Fresh Orange Juice
  • Champagne, Prosecco or Cava

The Orange Juice

Since it is breakfast the Juice has an important part to play. Whilst you can use store bought orange juice I highly recommend using fresh oranges.

It is easy to squeeze the oranges for fresh juice that tastes amazing.

Then fill your glass as desired, for me it was 2/3rds of fresh orange juice.

Then top with your fizz. This time it was 1/3rd prosecco for me.

Enjoy with your celebratory breakfast. This is a treat we have at Christmas with scrambled eggs with salmon and chives. It also goes great with pastries such as croissants or french toast.
