A Mimosa is a cocktail-like drink composed of one part champagne (or other sparkling wine) and one part thoroughly chilled orange juice. It is traditionally served in a tall champagne flute with a morning brunch as hair of the dog or to guests at weddings. [1].

A Buck's Fizz is a similar cocktail, but with twice as much orange juice as champagne.
