The Mimosa is named after a popular plant and although the creator of the cocktail is unknown, the cocktail was extremely popular in the United States of America around 1960.

The Mimosa was used at big formal functions and events as a celebratory drink.

The drink represents giltz and glam and can be seen as a representation of the "finer things in life.'

The Mimosa continues to live up to the reputation of being fancy, even today. If you look at pictures of people on a tropical vacation, you're extremely likely to spot a luxurious champagne flute filled with the bright yellow drink.
