For people of a certain age, Buck’s Fizz is a band that provided a rare British victory in the Eurovision Song Contest. That band was, unsurprisingly, a little like the cocktail they took their name from: not exactly cool, but good fun, and very British.

The story is that the Buck’s Fizz cocktail was invented in 1921 by Malachy McGarry, the barman at Buck’s Club, an old-fashioned London gentlemen’s club. It’s sometimes made with grenadine syrup, but most usually it’s just Champagne and orange juice. Over the years, it’s become synonymous with summer sports like tennis, and also with Christmas morning, when it’s sometimes known as a “Champagne breakfast”. Alcohol for breakfast is not always the best idea, and this Nozeco Buck’s Fizz offers a refreshing alternative for anyone who fancies keeping a clear head. 

It’s hard to find fault with this drink. It’s got the fizz, the Champagne bitterness and the citrus sharpness. If you find it a little too sharp, you could always add a splash of grenadine, but we thought it was spot-on.
