NATIONAL (KTNV) — Saturday is National Mimosa Day. So, consider this just a friendly reminder.

Every May 16, it's time to pop the champagne and mix it with an equal amount of orange juice, but some like a little more champagne.

The classic cocktail dates back to the 1920s and is named after a beautiful golden yellow flower with a fragrant scent.

Beyond brunch, mimosas are usually enjoyed at weddings, baby showers, or any special occasion.

The unofficial holiday was created by Jace Shoemaker Galloway - the so-called queen of holidays who tries to make every day on the calendar a special occasion.

Though the mimosa typically has orange juice as a mixer, any fruit juice paired with champagne also counts.
