The Buck's Fizz is an alcoholic drink made with orange juice and champagne. Some older recipes list grenadine as an additional ingredient, although the International Bartenders Association recipe does not include it.


The drink is named after London's Buck's Club where it was invented, and first served, by one of its barmen, Mr McGarry, in 1921.

Buck's Fizz is the English version of the French Mimosa cocktail, and predates the Mimosa by four years.Fact|date=March 2008

Sometimes, where real Champagne is not available or cannot be afforded, a sparkling white wine or perry is used in its place.
