History of the Buck's Fizz
Pat McGarry (or MacGarry) of the Buck's Club in London had created this cocktail by the time Harry MacElhone published his ABC of Mixing Drinks in 1921.
He carefully specified the ratio between the ingredients to 2 parts champagne and 1 part orange juice.
- 4 parts Champagne
- 2 parts Fresh Orange Juice
Pour the fresh Orange juice into the champagne glass. Slowly pour the champagne and then stir it carefully.
